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.

[VIDEO] Ellen DeGeneres Was Shook When Camila Cabello Told Her The Odd Way She Used Hand Warmers To Stay Warm

That’s a very interesting way to keep warm in the winter.

“Havana” singer Camila Cabello has been everywhere lately promoting her debut album, “Camila”. Her latest stop was on “The Ellen Show” and the Cuban-Mexican-American pop star shared some very personal details about her New Year’s Eve performance in New York City.

Cabello was raised in Miami so temperatures below 60 are likely to trigger a state of emergency for her. So what did the singer do to stay warm while performing during the second coldest New Year’s Eve in New York City’s history?

She took hand warmers and put them down the front of her pants. That’s right. The hand warmers were placed over her underwear and under her pants to keep her from getting too cold, according to what she told Ellen DeGeneres.

“It helped a lot,” Cabello told a skeptical and amused looking DeGeneres. “It helped a lot because I feel like, first of all, it was great. I don’t know why but it was great and I couldn’t put them on my toes because then it makes the shoe uncomfortable and this was the only place that I could do it.”

DeGeneres face literally represented everyone’s reaction when they heard this.

That’s the face of someone who is confused, a little embarrassed, and very curious about what exactly is going on.

“It was great,” Cabello continued to ramble. “I was out there like, ‘Havana oh-na-na.”

Yeah. Cabello admitted that the hand warmers on her special place reminded her of Havana.

Who hasn’t had a moment like this, tbh? Stay you, Camila. Don’t ever change.
