Watch Troye Sivan Slay His US TV Debut, Be “Killed” By John Cena On ‘The Tonight Show’

Written by Tom Williams on December 9, 2015

South African-born Aussie muso and YouTuber Troye Sivan has made his US television debut, and he’s done the special occasion justice by performing his track Youth and being figuratively “killed” by professional wrestler John Cena on Jimmy Fallon‘s The Tonight Show.

Starting with his back to the audience, Sivan’s US TV debut (below) sees him and his tune being supported by two members of his live crew and some powerful backing percussion from three members of The Roots, as well as some house-shaped lighting and a glittery jacket.

Sivan’s Tonight Show appearance also saw him become John Cena’s “inner child” while singing Adele’s Hello. Here’s proof:

Following his Tonight Show performance, Sivan shared his excitement on Twitter, saying:

Sivan’s debut Australian headline tour was scheduled for November, but was cancelled last-minute due to illness — specifically, acute laryngitis which reportedly developed into sinusitis.

For any fans who are still getting over that cancellation, the below footage might be a little bit hard to watch, but stay strong and catch the performance and all of its slaying power, below.
