After taking a tumble on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” in May, Meghan Trainor redeemed herself when she returned Monday for another performance.
The Grammy winner, sporting a pair of black boots that featured a short heel, rocked the house singing “Better” alongside rapper Yo Gotti — a sensible strategy for dancing onstage, unlike the silver sky-high platform heels that tripped her up during the last visit.
The Skechers ambassador later joined Fallon on the set’s couch while donning a giraffe-style onesie and a pair of the brand’s sneakers.
Featuring sparkling metallic treatments, her Skechers Originals OG 82 Dash and Dazzle kicks are designed with a suede and mesh fabric upper and incorporates the label’s Air Cooled Memory Foam technology insole, which enhances comfort. The shoes retail for $60 and are available at Skechers retail stores and online.
Speaking to Fallon, Trainor recalled why she gave the green light to air May’s flubbed dance number after reshooting the taped performance.
“I went back and I saw both takes, and I saw my face just full of fear on the second try,” Trainor explained. “You know what, the first one’s better. Let them have it. I’m going to fall eventually one day. Let this be it.”
The full episode, including the performance and interview, is available to watch on NBC.com.
In March, the songbird released a statement on her partnership with the footwear label that extends through 2017 across all media platforms, including television, print, online, social media and outdoor.
“I can’t wait to travel the world and see my face in Skechers stores – it still blows my mind,” Trainor said in a statement. “It’s an honor and dream to work with a big brand like [this one]. For my new album, I wanted to change it up with a different sound and a fresh new look – including my red-hair transformation. I think it takes confidence to take risks and be original.”
