Talk about a quinces to remember!
Last night marked the 15th annual Latin Grammy Awards show hosted by Mexican actors Eugenio Derbez and Jaqueline Bracamontes at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
A number of familiar faces walked the green carpet ahead of the show, including newlyweds Marc Anthony and Shannon De Lima (who made their official debut as a married couple), Pitbull, Ricky Martin and more!
However, the start of the show was delayed due to a 16-minute long speech by President Barack Obama, who addressed the nation on forthcoming changes with handling undocumented immigrants.
Once his speech ended, regularly scheduled programming continued and Puerto Rican duo (and multiple award winners) Calle 13 took the stage to kickoff the show with a performance of their song “El Aguante.” They also took a moment to share a heartfelt message to the world regarding the 43 students killed in Mexico.
“We can’t let this continue to happen in our times, que viva Mexico!” Resident said before being greeted with a standing ovation.
Along with honoring some of Latin music’s greatest artists, the audience was entertained with a variety of performances, including Pitbull, Chris Brown, Wisin, Pablo Alboran, Jesse & Joy, Yandel, Farruko, Espinoza Paz, La Arrolladora Banda el Limon, Carlos Santana and a mega medley by Juanes.
Anthony performed more than once, and even took on a duet with Magic!, singing a Spanish rendition of their hit song “Rude.”
At the end of the telecast, the Latin Grammys showed a montage video to pay tribute to the musicians who passed away in 2014, including Diomedes Diaz, Paco de Lucia, Cheo Feliciano, Juan Formell, Nelson Ned and Gustavo Cerati.
