Troye Sivan has successively made the leap from “YouTube star,” to international hit recording artist and, now, U.S. late night TV performer.
The Australian boy-wonder was the musical guest overnight on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where he performed “Youth,” lifted from his debut album release Blue Neighbourhood, which dropped Dec. 4. Sivan, who was accompanied with the Roots, didn’t appear overawed by what was his first U.S. TV appearance.

It’s been a massive 18 months for the pop producer and performer, whose 2014 mini-album release, TRXYE, peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200. Its follow-up, the Wild EP, received social media praise from superstars Sam Smith and Taylor Swift and reached No. 5 in the U.S. and U.K. Wild also opened at No. 1 in Australia. Sivan’s 25-date North America tour begins Feb. 3 at The Vogue in Vancouver, BC.
