In it, the Emmy-winning talk show host is seen performing with Lin-Manuel Miranda and the “Hamilton” cast onstage. He also taps drumsticks beside Bad Bunny as the Latin Grammy nominee sings “Mia” while moving through the streets of Old San Juan. The show takes an exciting turn when Fallon goes on a wild ride on the El Mostruo (The Monster), which is a two-mile-long zip line that goes 95 m.p.h. Tariq from The Roots also took the zip line plunge, flying right next to Fallon. (Watch the sneak peek clip above).
In a separate clip, Fallon describes the Puerto Rico show as “one of my favorite things we’ve ever done.” Tonight's episode will also feature music from Jose Feliciano and Ozuna, as well as an exclusive performance from the “Hamilton” cast.
Fallon also talked about the zip line experience in further detail in the second clip. Unlike Fallon, Tariq said he loved it, adding “I got to see what it felt like to be like Iron Man for a couple minutes.” Fallon, on the other hand, was not a zip line fan before he geared up for the ride. He was also shocked (and not happy) when he found out he had to ride another zip line down to a rendezvous point. To the former SNL star’s dismay, things didn’t go smoothly on the second leg of his zip line journey, to the extent that he had to be rescued.
Watch his hilarious account of the experience below.
Tune into “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” tonight at 11:35 p.m. ET/8:35 p.m. PT on NBC to see the special Puerto Rico broadcast.
