Watch Taylor Swift And Her ‘Cats’ Co-Stars Perform ‘Memory’ On The Tonight Show

Written by Alex Gallagher on December 19, 2019

After premiering last night, the first reviews for the new film adaptation of classic musical Cats seem to confirm what most of us kind of suspected – it’s a pretty bloody cursed piece of cinema.

However, one of the sole elements that managed to get by relatively unscathed was Jennifer Hudson’s performance of the musical’s show-stopping number ‘Memory’.

Now, the film’s stars – including Hudson, Taylor Swift, Jason Derulo, James Corden and Francesca Hayward – have appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform a new rendition of the classic number, backed by The Roots and Fallon.

Graciously, everyone is there in their full human forms – no haunted anthropomorphic feline CGI to be found.

For their instruments, the group made use of a variety of alley trash, including garbage lids, empty bottles and paint cans.

As Rolling Stone points out, while the film sees Hudson deliver the ballad solo, each co-star took a turn up front for this take, with Hudson closing out the song.

Watch the performance below.
