Bruno Mars Swept The GRAMMYs But ‘Despacito’ Was Inexcusably Snubbed

Latino talent was on display at the Grammys last night. Bruno Mars cleaned the house of awards because, well, Bruno Mars. Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee performed the original version of “Despacito” and the Dreamers got a shout out. But, there was a bit of heartbreak because some things just didn’t pan out as they should have. Here’s how it went down.

First, Joy Villa started the politically charged messaging with an anti-abortion dress.

The singer-songwriter wore a “Make American Great Again” dress at the Grammys last year. It doesn’t seem coincidental that the singer spent the day after the red carpet posting about her album climbing the Amazon Music charts.

And viewers quickly did what they do best and pulled receipts of  statements she’s previously made about abortion.

The Internet never forgets.

Camila Cabello might have finally nailed the flamenco emoji look she claims to try to emulate.

Stunning. Breathtaking.

And she shared some really important advise her mom gave her.

“I feel like if you ever make your motive success or numbers then that’s not really the right motive of doing things,” Cabello told Ryan Seacrest about her mother’s advice when going solo. “So, she told me, ‘Imagine you flop and nobody cares. If things don’t work out, do you still want to do this?’ And I was like, yeah. Absolutely because the point was just me getting to make music. People connecting with it is really just a bonus.”

Cabello continued to speak her truth when standing with Dreamers during the show.

“I’m here on this stage tonight because, just like the Dreamers, my parents brought me to this country with nothing in their pockets but hope,” Cabello told the crowd. She added: “I’m a proud Cuban-Mexican immigrant, born in eastern Havana, standing in front of you on the Grammy stage in New York City. All I know is that, just like dreams, these kids can’t be forgotten and are worth fighting for.”

Cardi B and Bruno Mars showed the crowd what it looks like to really perform.

The duo performed “Finesse” and it rocked the house. Definitely one of the best performances of the night.

The fans were living for it.

Who else was trying to dance along with Bruno in the living room?

And some fans were demanding more time.

That performance just wasn’t enough to make satisfy the fans.

Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee gave Latino fans a performance for the decades with the original “Despacito”.

There was no Justin Bieber as a surprise guest, and the world was very grateful.

Despite “Despacito” literally being the biggest song of 2017, it won zero awards of the three nominations it received.

Listen up, Recording Academy, “Despacito” broke the record for the most streamed song of ?? all ?? time?? and is the second longest running song to hit the top of the Billboard charts. It begs the question, what does it take to become the Song of the Year?

People definitely noticed that the blockbuster hit was robbed of its rightful award.

Everyone is sick of hearing the song at this point but that’s because we all played it nonstop for all of 2017. Like, what gives?

Even the Bruno Mars fans are upset he beat out Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee.

Mierda indeed, bro.

Shakira did make history as the first woman to win Best Latin Pop Album twice.

Gracias por este Grammy! / Thank you for this Grammy! Shak

A post shared by Shakira (@shakira) on

The first time she won the award was in 2001 when she won for her MTV Unplugged live album. The singer was overjoyed with her win and posted two videos to Instagram thanking her fans and the Recording Academy for the award.

Mars, on the other hand, totally cleaned up at the awards show with seven Grammys.

Mars won Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical (24K Magic), Best R&B Album (24K Magic), Best R&B Song (“That’s What I Like”), Best R&B Performance (“That’s What I Like”), Song of the Year (“That’s What I Like”), Record of the Year (24K Magic), and, the big one, Album of the Year (24K Magic).

28. Biker Mesh

We‘re so digging this look… maybe that‘s because the exposed bra and the biker hat reminds us of one of Selena‘s iconic looks. But no shame, if you‘re gonna get inspiration from someone, who better than Selena!?
