It’s Been 19 Years Since The GRAMMYs Has Had This Many Latino Performers

The last time there were four Latino performers at the Grammys was in 1999. Ricky Martin, Marc Anthony, Poncho Sanchez, and Ibrahim Ferrer took the stage to prime the Grammy audience for the first ever Latin Grammys being held the following year. Now, 19 years later, four performers are once again showing that Latinos are a force in music and everyone should be paying attention. No doubt everyone tuning in on Jan. 28 will see Latinos showing the world how it’s done.

The Recording Academy, which hosts the Grammys, got so much love when they announced their super diverse nominees.

Not only is this the first time sine 1999 that we have four Latino performers. This is also the first time since 1999 that no white men have been nominated for the highly coveted Album of the Year trophy. The nominees for Album of the Year are “Awaken, My Love!” by Childish Gambino, “4:44” by Jay-Z, “DAMN.” by Kendrick Lamar, “Melodrama” by Lorde, and “24K Magic” by Bruno Mars.

And the announcement of all the Latino talent performing got people even more hyped.

Ayyye! ??

Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi are performing their global smash hit “Despacito”.

“Despacito” took over the music world, becoming the most streamed song of all time. You might still be sick of the song but there is no denying that it put Latin music on the map last year. Now, all those folks tuning into will get another taste of the Caribbean-inspired masterpiece.

Can we get a “¡wepa!”?

Congratulations, boys!

Cardi B and Bruno Mars are also taking their duet “Finesse” out for a spin on the Grammy stage.

Ooo yeaaaa Baby we performing at the GRAMMYS !!!!! @brunomars !!!!!!!!

No need for anything more than the lyrics to explain the greatness of this performance.

“Ooh, don’t we look good together? / There’s a reason why they watch all night long / Yeah, know we’ll turn heads forever / So tonight I’m gonna show you off.”

Fans of these two artists cannot wait to dance around their living rooms during the big night.

Just two more weeks and we can all forget about our problems as Bruno Mars’ smooth dance moves lull us into a meditative trance.

San Antonio Fans Got Treated To J.Lo Singing ‘Si Una Vez’ And We Have Serious FOMO

Discover Laredo / YouTube

Jennifer Lopez arguably became a household name after she portrayed Selena in the biopic about the iconic Mexican-American singer. Since then, J.Lo has become a musical, acting, and producing force in the entertainment industry. Now, at 50, the Puerto Rican superstar is on a new tour and fans in San Antonio were treated to a special cover when she belted out “Si Una Vez” by Texas legend Selena Quintanilla.

J.Lo really showed up for her San Antonio audience with her “Si Una Vez” song after admitting it was her favorite.

At the beginning of the video, J.Lo asks the audience if they want to hear a little Selena. Like, what kind of question is that to ask a Texas audience? Of course, they want to hear some Selena. After asking the crowd which song would be best she told them that “Si Una Vez” is her favorite and that sent the crowd into a frenzy.

Fans were so excited to learn J.Lo’s favorite Selena song because we all have one.

Finding someone with the same favorite Selena song as you is so amazing. Legit, one of the most telling signs of how long your friendship and relationship will last is the Selena test. Do they know who Selena is? Do they like her music? Do you have the same favorite Selena song? This is crucial

Seeing the woman who brought Selena to the big screen was one of the most touching moments for so many people.

Hearts fluttered. Angels got wings. Moods were lifted. It was a physical moment for so many people who could feel the love from the stage. It was as if Selena was on stage in J.Lo’s body giving us the concert we have been craving.

While all of the concertgoers were melting down, social media people also lost their minds over the cover.

It’s like Thalía taking time during her concert to give the fans a taste of Jenni Rivera. Who wouldn’t want to be there for that moment? It feels like a special connection between the singer and the audience as they give praise and attention to a shared icon.

This is one way to ring in your 50th birthday, J.Lo.

There is one thing everyone knows for sure, J.Lo is a force that cannot be overlooked. She is a strong and powerful singer. A recognizable actor. A successful producer. But, most importantly, she is a Selena fan who gives the Tejano singer the respect and love she deserves.

Watch the full performance below.

Thank you, J.Lo. You know how to make your shows something to remember.

Cardi B May Be In Denial About Not Going To Jail After She Faces Felony Charges From A NYC Grand Jury

Cardi B is apparently facing some pretty serious legal issues after news broke that the “Money” rapper is facing felony indictments from a grand jury.

The charges seem to stem from a bar brawl back in August.

She is allegedly facing 14 charges in connection with the incident.

Cardi B has been indicted by a grand jury on multiple charges — including two felonies — in connection with a brawl at a New York strip club.

TMZ was first to break the story.

The incident, which went down in August, was allegedly triggered after Cardi accused Jade of sleeping with Offset. Cardi was arrested in October for allegedly ordering the attack on two strip club bartenders — Jade and Baddie G. The two women claim they were injured during the brawl when Cardi’s people began throwing bottles and chairs.

Cardi B had already faced charges in relation to the attack.

She was initially charged with two misdemeanors for assault and reckless endangerment, but that’s all superseded by the grand jury indictment.  

Previously, Cardi rejected a plea deal in connection with the incident, which revolves around two women who claim to have sustained injuries during a fight they allege began because of a request from Cardi.

Reactions on Twitter were everywhere…

But most could agree that this whole event took a turn real fast.

It seems that Cardi B wasn’t getting much support from fans on Twitter.

Many comments range from “it’s about damn time” and “lock her up” to loads of memes and GIFs of people laughing at the rapper’s deteriorating legal situation.

While others were already looking to the future.

I mean it’s a bit premature to be sure that Cardi B may be facing jail time, let alone prison time.

Even non-fans were surprised by the level of hate she was getting.

The only way I could see people being happy is if she actually did it and is now going to face the consequences for her actions.

While many wondered why people were putting so much energy into the news.

To many, it was her reaction to the initial charges and the way she denied any involvement. Many thought she reacted as if she could get away with whatever she wanted – that she shouldn’t have to face the consequences.

To some, there are way more pressing matters to be shocked and disgusted at.
