It’s been an amazing year for Troye Sivan. After being named one of Billboard’s hottest artists under 21 last year, he began diving deeper into his music career and put out a wildly successful EP, video trilogy, a debut album, and became a prominent voice within the LGBT community. That’s pretty astounding for a guy who is a little less than a year shy of his 21st birthday.
Sivan made his U.S.-television debut last night on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. He performed “Youth,” one of the lead singles off his aforementioned debut album Blue Neighbourhood. With The Roots taking over the track’s anthemic, marching-drum beat, Sivan burst through the track, leaving Fallon speechless—save for the word “fantastic.”
WWE’s John Cena was also in the house and got in touch with his inner child, which was, apparently, Sivan. Spoiler alert: Cena is an oddly endearing actor in the making and has a vendetta for his youth. It’s all good fun until Sivan gets thrown to the ground by John Cena. See for yourself, below.
