This is one outfit Paulina Rubio would love us to completely forget about. We can understand why. But, since this debacle in 2004, la chica dorada has proudly redeemed herself.

These Artists Used Their Platform At The Latin Grammys To Send A Powerful Message To Puerto Rico

The 2017 Latin Grammys were more than just music and entertainment this year, as artists used their platform to send a message about Puerto Rico. Here are some of the award recipients who showed their love for the people of Puerto Rico throughout the night.

Lin-Manuel Miranda used his acceptance speech after winning a special President’s Merit Award to shed light on Puerto Rico and highlight the significance of collaboration between Latinos.


Miranda came prepared, with his speech written out on paper, and delivered every single word with tremendous passion. Each time Miranda thanked a friend, family member or colleague, he followed it with “no one gets here alone,” serving as a reminder that united we rise higher. Miranda also used his time to discuss the Unity March for Puerto Rico, happening Nov. 19. He and thousands of others will march in solidarity with the people of Puerto Rico to urge the White House and Congress to serve those U.S. citizens. After chanting “Puerto Rico” eight times in a row, the entire audience responded with a roar of applause.

Another passionate ode to Puerto Rico came from Puerto Rican rapper, Residente, who clarified that the island does not need to rise again.


He opened his performance with the message: “Puerto Rico no se levanta, porque Puerto Rico siempre ha estado de pie.” Puerto Rico will not rise, because Puerto Rico has always been standing.

Throughout his performance, Residente described the beauty and strength of Puerto Rican people, emphasizing the endurance and perseverance they all posses.

Puerto Rican musicians who joined Residente at the Latin Grammys also made sure to represent their country and their people. Here’s what they had to say:

Musician Jerry Medina says that despite losing all of his belongings in Puerto Rico, one thing he hasn’t lost is his hope, courage and pride. He knows Puerto Rico will never be the same after Hurricane Maria, but he also knows that the people of Puerto Rico are fighters.



Other musicians from Residente’s group expressed their love for the rapper’s music, hoping that their performance at the Latin Grammys helps raise awareness for the people of Puerto Rico.

Of course, the big winner of the night, Luis Fonsi and his smash hit “Despacito,” was also devoted to the people of Puerto Rico.


Fonsi posted on Instagram the following message: “A night I will never forget. I dedicate this to my Puerto Rico. Thank you @daddyyankee for being part of this journey. Thank you @erikaender, @andrestorrest, #MauricioRengifo @latingrammys ??”

Juanes Join Logic And Alessia Cara To Perform The Bilingual Version Of Logic’s Suicide Prevention Song, Which Has Had A Huge Impact

@TeamVisionary/ Twitter

Juanes joined Logic and Alessia Cara on stage at the Latin Grammys Awards on Thursday to perform a bilingual remix of Logic’s song “1-800-273-8255.”

The song delivers an important message, empowering people suffering from depression and suicidal thoughts to seek help and know it can get better. The title is the phone humber for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (NSPL) hotline, ensuring fans know where they to call for help.

As the performance began, the backdrop lit up with a different number – the Spanish-language NSPL hotline.

The original version of the song was released in April in partnership with the NSPL.

At the time, Logic spoke out about his own struggles with depression, and dedicated the song to those who, as the songs says, can relate.

And the NSPL reached out to him, thanking him for his advocacy.

In an official statement, the NSPL outlined the impact the song has had on their call volume.

Since the release of the song, call volume to the NSPL has skyrocketed, as did interactions on social media, with many callers mentioning the song in their conversations with crisis centers. Logic himself tweeted out the statement, calling “1-800-273-8255” the “most important song” he’s ever written.

Logic thanked the Latino community for welcoming him with open arms and for, erm, creating his beautiful wife.

Although “creating my beautiful Mexican Wife” sounds a little weird out of context, his wife Jessica Andrea is, indeed, Mexican. So, you’re welcome, Logic.

VMAS…you were something else ?

A post shared by Jessica Andrea (@itsjessandrea) on

All jokes aside, the song has been helpful for many. Logic spoke to Genius to explain the song’s lyrics and meaning.

He shares that during a cross country tour, he heard from fans that his music saved their lives. While he says that was a positive, unintentional outcome, those fans pushed him to write a song that actually aimed to help people and save lives.

Hopefully with the remix and by sharing the Spanish language hotline number, Juanes can have the same impact with Latinos.

If you or a loved one is in need of help, the number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 1-800-273-8255. For Spanish speakers it’s 1-888-628-9454.
