Jimmy Fallon Teased His Latino Fans With This Amazing Reveal

Jimmy Fallon had a surprise for his Latino viewers last night, a surprise that probably made a few people reminisce about Saturday nights with their parents.

Fallon was reading viewer suggestions aloud. One viewer asked for Don Francisco to be invited as a guest.

The viewer wrote that it would be a good idea because Don Francisco has a new show, “Don Francisco Te Invita,” on Telemundo. Hmm, maybe that viewer works for Comcast, the parent company of both NBC and Telemundo. ? Anyway, Fallon was very much into the idea.

Then, after considering the idea, Fallon said it was unlikely to get him on the show.

Like, why would you even tease us about this?

But, wait, Fallon thought of a way to make the legendary Don Francisco appear.

Surely it isn’t that easy.

Fallon laid it all on the line and gave it the good old college try singing “To All The Girls I’ve Loved Before” by Julio Iglesias and Willie Nelson.

And. It. Worked.

Right on cue, Don Francisco came through the curtain and joined Fallon on the stage singing their first ever duet. Ah-Mazing!

The two men totally owned their performance, like they do.

Mom’s thought the world was going to end when “Sábado Gigante” went off the air last year after a 53-year run, but Don Francisco couldn’t stay away from the small screen. In other words, he’s back, y’all!

Tell your mom, abuelita and your tías. This is HUGE!

The Chilean TV host has announced his return to television with a new show called “Don Francisco Te Invita,” set to premiere October 9 on Telemundo. The variety show will have a mix of everything, including musical guests and celebrity interviews. You know, nothing out of the ordinary.

Or so we thought!

Turns out that the 75-year-old star took some tips from James Corden’s successful “Carpool Karaoke” and is in fact, riding around town with Latino celebs.

His first guest: Rafael Amaya. ***swoons***

In a three-minute clip, the two men talk about Don Francisco’s upcoming show and sing-a-long to Juan Gabriel’s “Querida.” You’d think they know all the lyrics, but nope. Either way, this karaoke sesh is hilarious.
