Latin artists have had a strong presence on late-night television recently, but that hasn’t always been the case.

In 2007, Daddy Yankee took center stage on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, where he performed “Impacto.” Then, in 2014, Juanes made history as the first 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.

Yankee and Juanes, in addition to other Latin acts, were 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 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 for Latin representation 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.

In 2021 and 2022, more and more Latin artists continue to perform on late-night shows. Below, check out our updating list.
