Jimmy Fallon, Lin-Manuel Miranda Perform ‘Hamilton’ Songs, Bond With Locals in Puerto Rico

Recalling the more shocking activities he engaged in, Fallon joked that he “almost died” going 95-miles-an-hour on a zip line in the jungle.

Jimmy Fallon visited the recovering island of Puerto Rico and documented his experience on Tuesday’s episode of The Tonight Show. The impetus of the weekend trip was to raise relief money for artists affected by the hurricane in 2017. 

While there, the host visited Lin-Manuel Miranda on-set at the opening of Hamilton, in which Fallon donned full costume to perform “The Story of Tonight” from the Broadway hit — but with updated lyrics for The Tonight Show. The Hamilton cast also helped sing the late-night show’s theme, as well.

“There are friends who say ‘good luck,’ and there are friends who say, ‘Hold on. I’m coming with you,'” tweeted Miranda in reference to Fallon’s visit to his homeland. 

Fallon also took to the streets with Questlove, Black Thought and Puerto Rican singer Bad Bunny to dance to the musician’s hit “MIA.” They were joined by a group of local residents and musicians waving Puerto Rican flags and playing instruments.
