Latin artists have had a strong presence on late-night television recently, but that hasn’t always been the case.
Back in 2014, Juanes made history as the first-ever Spanish-language artist to perform on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and in 2015, he was the first Latin artist on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
The Colombian artist was then followed by artists such as Romeo Santos, who performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in 2017; Bad Bunny, who made his late-night TV debut on Fallon in 2018; and Daddy Yankee, who was the first Latin act to perform on The Late Late Show With James Corden in 2019.
Between 2018 and 2020, the demand has grown, with artists such as J Balvin, Nicky Jam, Maluma, Lunay, Natanael Cano, Anitta and Karol G, to name a few, taking the TV stage.
