Rocking out a neon outfit, the “Big Boss” took the stage with a group dancers, belting out the catchy chorus. Both Yankee and Katy finished f their presentation by flaunting their reggaeton-dancing skills on the Idol stage.
Daddy Yankee’s “Con Calma” is a remake Snow's 1993 No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 hit "Informer." On April 19, Yankee announced the Spanglish remix featuring Katy Perry.
