The Triplets were a Latin pop trio from Mexico. Composed of the triplets Diana, Sylvia, and Vicky Villegas (all born April 18, 1959) of an American mother and a Mexican father,[1] the group recorded in both English and Spanish. They first gained recognition after winning the MTV Basement Contest in 1986 for the song "Translate."

They scored a hit single on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1991 with "You Don't Have to Go Home Tonight". They released a VHS tape in 1991 as well. Subsequent hits followed on the Billboard Latin charts.


Cover versions[edit]

"You Don't Have to Go Home Tonight" also reached the Dutch charts at the time. In 1995 its success was eclipsed by the Dutch-language version ("Je Hoeft Niet naar Huis Vannacht") that Marco Borsato recorded.
