Karol G headlined the popular Viña del Mar International Song Festival in Chile on Sunday night (February 19). The festival had been on a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so its organizers knew it had to go big.
And La Bichota did not disappoint.
The Medellín, Colombia native, 32, brought all her glory to the stage. She was a showstopper at first sight. The “SEJODIOTO” singer wore a pink dress, ankle-high socks, and white sneakers. The paisa went on to entertain a crowd of about 15,000 for an hour and 30 minutes.
Karol G performed some of her most-known hits such as “Provenza,” “Bichota,” and “Tusa.” She also had two special guests performing alongside her. The first was Chilean up-and-coming-artist Criss MJ; she performed the unreleased song, “Una Noche en Medellín Remix.”
Her second guest drove the crowd (and social media) even crazier. She invited the iconic Myriam Hernanez. Hernandez is a staple in many Latino/e families and her song “El Hombre Que Yo Amo” is definitely a favorite among many families.
🇨🇴🇨🇱 Call your mom and your tias! Because Karol G brought out Myriam Hernandez to her Viña Del Mar set! 🥰 #karolg #bichota #romeosantos #xsivolvemos #viñadelmar #shakira #benito #shakira #beckyg #myriamhernandez #mañanaserabonito
