There was no chance that Olivia Rodrigo was going to let down her fans with her Tonight Show performance. Still, expectations were high given how popular the song has become in such a relatively short period of time.

Rodrigo delivered with an intimate performance that highlighted her vocal talent and the powerful message behind “drivers license”. With just a piano and a spotlight, Rodrigo gave fans a captivating rendition of the song. On social media, there was an outpouring of support for the singer and her successful television debut.

Fans were also quick to point out that Rodrigo was wearing a Taylor Swift cardigan. Rodrigo has cited Swift as a major influence on her and has claimed that she’s the biggest Swift fan in the world. Using her television debut, a major event in any artist’s career, to honor Swift makes it hard to argue with Rodrigo about that.

Olivia Rodrigo has many more television appearances and performances ahead of her. She set a pretty high bar for herself on The Tonight Show but fans didn’t expect anything less.
