The piccolo girl’s “15 minutes” is in overtime.

Her appearance on The Tonight Show, sitting in with The Roots, has now gotten nearly 1.2 million views.

The #PiccoloGirl is Roxanne Chalifoux, a senior at Villanova, who has taken Twitter, Vine and Instagram by storm.

The video and images of her tears as Villanova suffered a stunning defeat 68-71 loss to North Carolina State over the weekend became a viral meme.


And now she’s having a second wave of fame on YouTube.

“It’s absolutely mind-blowing,” she told Jimmy Fallon. “All I thought I did was cry on national television.”

“It’s a funny story. In the very beginning, I’m looking up at the Jumbotron, so I saw myself on it,” Roxanne recalled. “And all I could think about was my dad at the game and I didn’t want him to see me crying. But then it turned into like, everyone saw me crying.”

That we did, Roxanne!
