The 12th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards were held at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada last night (November 10th) - Recognizing outstanding achievement, in Spanish and Portuguese, in the music industry, this year's Latin Grammys paid respect to Puerto Rican rapper Calle 13 who took home the staggering number of NINE awards, beating the likes of Shakira and Mana. Congrats are in order...I guess. Anyhow, what we really care about in these awards are the perfomances, so let's get going.
Last night at the Latin Grammys ceremony there were live performances by: Demi Lovato - who made a duet with Spanish singer Pablo Alboran with his tear-shedding song "Solamente Yu ('Only You'), Usher and his protegé Romeo Santos performed the Latin smash "Promise", Pitbull and Marc Anthony got the party started with "Rain Over Me", and finally Shakira, donning a stunning dress, and looking so flawless, treated the audience with a breathtaking performance of her new Spanish single "Antes de las Seis". Good performances overall. Btw, Demi's still gotta improve her Spanish...I don't think she's yet worthy of performing Pablo Alboran's FLAWLESS song. And SMH at the Grammy execs who didn't give Pablo the award for 'Best New Artist'. His music is the TRUTH!
