Camila Cabello was an early winner at the Latin Grammys on Thursday (14Nov19), picking up the Best Pop Song award before the ceremony had even begun in Las Vegas.
During a pre-ceremony presentation, she and Spanish pop star Alejandro Sanz were awarded the trophy for their collaboration Mi Persona Favorita.
Rosalia was also a winner heading into the event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, scoring honors for Best Contemporary Pop Vocal Album and Best Packaging for El Mal Querer, and bachata legends Juan Luis Guerra and 4.40 claimed the Best Tropical Song for their 2019 single Kitipun.
Chilean singer Mon Laferte won the Best Alternative Album for Norma, and during her acceptance speech, she read out a poem written by an unnamed friend, dedicated to those fighting government repression in Chile.
The 36 year old shocked on the red carpet by exposing her bare chest, on which she’d written “en Chile torturan violan y matan” (in Chile they torture, rape, and kill) with a black marker pen.
Hundreds of people have been killed in recent months while protesting police brutality and corruption in Chile.
Early winners also included Fonseca (Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album for Agustin), Pedro Capo & Farruko (Best Urban Fusion/Performance for Calma (Remix), Andre Calamaro (Best Pop/Rock Album for Cargar La Suerte), and Calamaro & German Wiedemer (Best Rock Song for Verdades Afiladas).”
