The Tonight Show brought some Latin flavor by bringing Latin reggaeton stars J Balvin and Nicky Jam. The two appeared as the musical guests on the show, performing a medley of “Mi Gente” and “X.” The best part is towards the end when Jimmy Fallon joined the duo for quick dance.
Balvin kicked things off by performing "Mi Gente," and then Nicky Jam joined him for their newest collaboration - "X." We got what we never expected...Jimmy Fallon eventually hopped onstage to do the “X” dance with the two superstars.
Watch below as the he duo brought late-night host Jimmy Fallon onstage and encouraged him to dance along:
J.Balvin was originally set to appear as Fallon’s musical guest last November, but the appearance was canceled following the death of the host’s mother. This rescheduled appearance offered Balvin the opportunity to bring Jam into the mix. Again...thankfully!
During the episode the duo also participated in a game of Truth or Challenge. The challenge included singing like SpongeBob SquarePants and making animal sounds, which the pair did gamely.(WATCH below):
“Mi Gente” comes from Vibras, Balvin’s fifth album, which dropped in May (although the single has been making the sounds since last fall). “X” emerged earlier this year as a collaborative effort from Balvin and Jam. Its official single has earned over one billion views on YouTube.
J Balvin went to Instagram to post how excited he was about being on the show, claiming: "Otro sueño más cumplido !!! Junto @jimmyfallon y @nickyjampr ⚡️🦖⚡️#vibras", which translates to "another dream come true!!!"
