Latin Grammy 2023
The vibrant city of Seville witnessed the 24th edition of the Latin Grammy Awards, a historic milestone as it marked the first time that the Latin Recording Academy decided to hold the ceremony outside the United States. The night was filled with unforgettable and enjoyable moments at the Palacio de Exposiciones y Congresos de Sevilla (FIBES), presented collectively by Danna Paola, Roselyn Sánchez, Paz Vega, and Sebastián Yatra.
Spectacular Opening: Rosalía Shines with Elegance and Talent
Catalan artist Rosalía, known for breaking boundaries, opened the ceremony spectacularly. Performing a rendition of Rocío Jurado’s «Se nos rompió el amor,» Rosalía not only showcased her vocal prowess but also surprised with a unique stage presence. The Spanish guitar played with a bow to emulate a cello added a distinctive touch, while a video showing her dancing behind the scenes revealed her authenticity. All of this, coupled with a dazzling Schiaparelli design, made Rosalía’s performance one of the most talked-about moments of the night.
Karol G: The Queen of the Night with Double Triumph
Karol G shone brightly by taking home two prominent awards: Best Urban Album for «Mañana será bonito» and the coveted Album of the Year, also for the same project. Her presence on stage was a testament not only to her musical talent but also to her impact on the contemporary Latin scene.
The list of nominees highlighted the diversity and international reach of Latin music. Names like Shakira, Nicki Nicole, Maluma, Milo J, Bizarrap, and Rauw Alejandro represented a blend of styles and genres reflecting the richness and breadth of the current music scene.
Gala Presenters: Diversity and Charm
The collective presentation by Danna Paola, Roselyn Sánchez, Paz Vega, and Sebastián Yatra added a special touch to the night. The diversity of presenters mirrored the variety of talents that Latin music has to offer, while their charm and professionalism kept the audience captivated throughout the ceremony.
