 Will Smith joins J Balvin onstage for surprise ‘Men in Black’ cameo


Will Smith made a thrilling surprise appearance during J Balvin’s recent concert, delighting fans as he joined the Colombian singer on stage. Smith, famed for his role in the iconic 1997 film “Men in Black,” stepped onto the stage fully clad in the characteristic Men in Black attire, complete with the iconic sunglasses that have become synonymous with the character Agent J.

The performance saw Smith reprising the title track of “Men in Black,” adding a nostalgic touch to the evening’s entertainment. His participation was not just a brief cameo but a significant highlight, culminating in a dramatic flourish as he brandished a Neuralyzer—the memorable memory-erasing gadget from the film. This act was perfectly timed and added a theatrical element to the show, as on the count of three, dancers dressed in black suits mimicked a scene from the movie by dragging Balvin off stage, signaling the end of his performance, per Variety

However, the energy did not wane as Balvin soon returned to the stage for another set, this time performing his energetic hit “In Da Ghetto.” He was accompanied by a group of dancers donned in alien costumes, featuring large, black eyes, enhancing the extraterrestrial theme of the concert.

J Balvin is renowned for his dynamic and thematic concert experiences, and this event was no exception. The show commenced with an imaginative 1950s-style newsreel that portrayed an alien invasion, setting the stage for the evening’s interstellar motif. Balvin made his grand entrance rising from beneath the stage under a UFO, resembling an alien himself. His dancers, joining in the spectacle, helped create a vivid scene that captured the audience’s imagination.

Addressing the crowd in Spanish, Balvin kicked off his performance with “Mi Gente,” his 2018 global hit, before continuing with a string of other popular tracks. The combination of his energetic music, thematic staging, and the surprise inclusion of Will Smith created a memorable experience that resonated well with the audience, according to Deadline.

Throughout the performance, the seamless integration of theatrical elements with live music showcased Balvin’s commitment to delivering more than just a musical performance but a full-fledged spectacle. The surprise appearance by Will Smith was a testament to Balvin’s influence and ability to create unique concert experiences, merging Hollywood nostalgia with contemporary music in a way that left the audience both surprised and thoroughly entertained.
