Don Francisco makes surprise appearance on ‘Tonight Show’

Don Francisco, who has inspired generations of Latinos throughout the Americas, will host "Sabado Gigante" for the last time Saturday night.

 

The new king of late-night television met his Spanish-language counterpart, kind of.

 Don Francisco, the former host of “Sabado Gigante,” showed up on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” when a fan wrote in asking for an appearance

In a startling twist, Fallon summoned the legendary Spanish-language host now working in Telemundo for a short musical break.

“I love Don Francisco – he’s a legend,” Fallon said on the show that aired this week.

The two TV hosts broke out into an emotional rendition of “All the Girls I’ve Loved before” for a not-to-be-missed moment of two worlds coming together.

The 75-year-old Francisco, whose real name is Mario Kreutzberger, ended his iconic 53-year run of “Sabado Gigante” on Univision in September 2015. Earlier this year, he signed a new deal with rival Telemundo that would see him produce original content for U.S. Hispanics across multiple platforms.

His new show “Don Francisco Te Invita” airs on Sunday nights.
