After several false starts, Zayn Malik finally made his debut TV performance as a solo artist last night – and it was pretty special.

The 23-year-old star gave a spine-tingling rendition of his new song It’s You on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon in the States and also had a little surprise in store for fans.

Yep, not only did he totally kill it on stage but Zayn also revealed the cover for his upcoming album Mind Of Mine during the show and it’s kind of adorable.

It features a picture of a young Zayn giving a big smile (awww) and the tattoos on his arms have been added to the image.

Zayn had earlier warned his followers that there might be a little treat in store for them ahead of the appearance.

‘May have a surprise for you on the show tonight,’ the former One Direction star posted.

Not only has the unveiling of the album cover got fans talking but THAT incredible performance has pretty much sent Twitter into meltdown.

#ZAYNOnFallon started trending worldwide as Mr Malik’s fanbase shared their thoughts on social media – and it’s fair to say that the reaction was positive.

‘Can we all just marvel at #ZAYNOnFallon bc,’ one admirer wrote.

Another posted: ‘I just saw #ZAYNOnFallon it was beautiful. I love the new song @zaynmalik’

And this fan is struggling to deal with the cuteness of Zayn’s debut album artwork:

It’s no wonder Zayn’s rendition of It’s You was pretty emotional as the tune is said to be about his break-up with Perrie Edwards, who he split from last summer.

We’ll have to wait and see if the soulful tune is as big a hit as first single Pillowtalk, which reached No1 in 68 countires. Wowzers.

His album Mind Of Mine is set for release on 25 March – aka the anniversary of the day he announced he was leaving 1D last year. Awkward.
