On Tuesday night's "love letter to the island" episode of "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," the cast of  the hit Broadway play, Hamilton, opened the show with the song "The Story of Tonight."

The emotional performance included "Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon who joined Lin-Manuel Miranda on stage singing the line "We've got a killer show tonight."

The entire Hamilton cast then joined in to sing the "Tonight Show" open. 

Fallon brought the show to Puerto Rico after Miranda announced on the late night show back in December that he would be performing Hamilton in Puerto Rico. Fallon decided to join along.

Both Hamilton and "The Tonight Show" wanted to both support and celebrate the island after Hurricane Maria devastated the U.S. territory in 2017. 

You can watch "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Channel 3 Monday through Friday at 11:35 P.M. est. 

 

 


LOS ANGELES (AP) - Jimmy Fallon is calling his "Tonight Show" episode taped in Puerto Rico a love letter to the island still in hurricane-recovery mode.

The show airing Tuesday on NBC features a performance by "Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. He's reprising his starring role in the U.S. territory for charity.

Fallon tells The Associated Press he filmed a music video with Bad Bunny and "Tonight" house band The Roots in San Juan's historic district and it includes marching bands and dancers.

Jose Feliciano and Ozuna also are featured, and Fallon showcases island highlights and plays foodie with chef-activist Jose Andres.

Fallon says the show is a celebration of Puerto Rico that aims to show the island is open for business with tourists.
