These Premios Lo Nuestro Winners Used Their Time To Put Trump On The Spot

Some of the biggest names in Latino music gathered yesterday for the 29th Premios Lo Nuestro awards. Of course, there were several great performances and glitzy outfits on the red carpet, but the real juicy part was the politically-charged, pro-Latino tone of the show. Several stars used their moment on camera to rally Latinos and let President Trump know exactly what they think of his administration.

Prince Royce spoke up for the immigrants in the crowd.


“I want to dedicate this prize to all immigrants,” said Prince Royce, who won Tropical Artist of the Year. “We are all immigrants, truly. To my family, my mom and my dad who are right over there.”

Romeo Santos spoke from his heart as he rallied Latinos with love.


“The only thing I would say to everyone is, please, in this world we need more love, more peace, less jealousy, less war,” Santos, who won the Excellence Award, told the crowd. “And we all deserve respect and equality for Latinos. That’s very important.”

You knew Jorge Ramos was going to come with some fire.


“I am an immigrant, like a lot of you. I am a proud Latino immigrant in the United States,” Ramos told the crowd. “You all know exactly what is happening here in the United States. There are a lot of people who do not want us here and they want to build a wall to separate us. But, you know what? This is also our country. Let me repeat that. Our country. Not theirs. It’s our country. And we are not going to leave. There are close to 70 million Latinos in the United States and, thanks to us, the United States eats, grows, and, as you’ve seen today, sings and dances. Therefore, when they attack us, we already know what we are going to do. We are not going to sit down. We will not be quiet. And we are not going to go. That’s what we are going to do.”

And people were feeling Ramos’ speech.

J Balvin lent his voice to the growing political charge at Premios Lo Nuestro.


“I don’t think this is a bad time,” Balvin, winner of Male Artist of the Year, told the crowd. “I think it’s very a good time for Latinos to unite and show the world that we are really cool, that we are a beautiful generation and that we have strength.”

Carlos Vives directed his message to President Trump and he did not mince words.


“Mr. President, you want a greater America. A greater America is a united America,” said Vives, whose song “La Bicicleta” featuring Shakira won both Video of the Year and Tropical Song of the Year. “Mr. President, you have an historic opportunity. Unite us!”

Like most live shows, there were some technical issues — some people joked that Trump was trying to silence his critics — but the show went on.
