The Latin Music Superstar will make his third performance appearance at the special event recognizing global champions for peace, this time by the special invitation of this year’s Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos. Juanes joins a lineup of fellow musicians Sting, Halsey, Highasakite and Icona Pop, with Conan O’Brien serving as host.
JUANES Appeared On THREE Widely-Praised Song Performances On The Latin Grammy Awards:
An impassioned rendition of his own new #1 hit “Fuego,” a foot stomping ‘country/rockabilly’ duet of “Si Tu Me Quisieras” with Mon Laferte and the ‘standout performance of the night’ in the show opening duet of Juanes and Pablo Lopez on “Tu enemigo”
“Top Standout 2016 Latin Grammy Performance: Given the political climate after the U.S. presidential election, there was no better way to start the Latin Grammys than with [Pablo] Lopez and Juanes’ powerful and provocative collab. The spectacular and colorful performance of ‘Tu enemigo,’ a thought-provoking song with topical lyrics about a ‘monster of rage,’ was backed up by a gospel chorus and Cirque du Soleil’s acrobats’. –Billboard
“In the wake of a divisive U.S. presidential election… a provocative opening performance [by Pablo Lopez & Juanes]… ‘Tu enemigo’ (Your Enemy), a thought-provoking song with topical lyrics (“Feeding the monster of rage, your enemy, who comes from another country to profane you, who steps on your city without permission, who will toss your things out on the street”).- Hollywood Reporter
“Los mejores momentos de los Latin Grammy 2016… uno de los momentos más resaltantes fue la apertura, estuvo a cargo de Juanes junto a Pablo López cantando ‘Tu enemigo’ con una magistral puesta en escena con tambores y acrobacias aéreas… Por su parte, Juanes acompañó a Mon Laferte con un estilo muy country en donde pudo demostrar sus habilidades con la guitarra, seguidamente le puso ‘Fuego’ a la noche con su nuevo sencillo al ritmo de la pirotecnia que estuvo presente en el stage.” – Terra
