Anti-Trump And Pro-Trump Messages Were Sent At The Grammys

This year’s GRAMMYs were filled with surprise wins, great performances and, of course, Latinxs doing their things. While everyone else is still in shock that Adele won Record and Album of the Year over Beyoncé, there were a few other moments that caught our attention. Here are some of the top Latinx moments from the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards.

Jennifer Lopez opened things by making it clear why everyone was there that night: to celebrate the power of art.

“It is about the music, the words, and the voices. How they move us, inspire us, and touch all our lives. At this particular moment in history, our voices are needed more than ever,” J.Lo told the crowd. “As Toni Morrison once said, ‘This is precisely the time when artists go to work. There is no time for despair, no place for self pity, no need for silence, and no room for fear. We do language. That is how civilizations heal.'”

Northern Cree and Carla Morrison shared the stage and slayed their performance.


At the end of her song, Morrison gave Mexico a little shout out saying, “Arriba México, señores.” ??

Gina Rodriguez was poppin’ in her lacy black dress when she introduced Alicia Keys and Maren Morris to the stage.


Tbh, their performance was amazing but some people were absolutely floored by her outfit of choice.

Demi Lovato channeled Cher and gave a Bee Gees tribute dressed as a disco queen.


#Flawless

The ever-smooth Bruno Mars came through and gave a performance that would have made Prince proud.


He owned his performance with such confidence and grace that it’s no surprise that people are loving it.

Jesse and Joy won the award for Best Latin Pop Album for “Un Besito Más” and their speech was inspiring.

This is for all the #Latinos all over the world!!! Esto es para todos los latinos del mundo!!!

“We want to thank God, we want to thank our fans. We want to thank the academy. This means so much to us. The name of the album, ‘Un Besito Más’ is a song we wrote for our daddy who passed away and we’re so proud to be Mexican-Americans,” Joy said. “This goes to all the Hispanics out there in this country. To every minority group: we are with you. We stand with you.”

Joy Villa made her own political statement by wearing a Make America Great Again dress complete with “TRUMP” on her train.


She might have faced some backlash from that stunt but every American is entitled to their opinions. Those record sales don’t hurt either.
