Best Latin Grammy Winners: Bruno Mars, Maluma, and More

After a three-year hiatus, this year’s Latin Grammys, presented on Monday night in New York, was back. The ceremony celebrated Latin music and musicians in the wake of a deeply political and unpredictable year in music, with performances by some of the biggest names in Latin music, including Luis Fonsi, Carla Morrison, Ruben Blades, and Wisin y Yandel. Hosted by actress and producer Sofia Vergara, the program also included the unveiling of the Latin Recording Academy’s newest prize, the Latin Songwriter of the Year, and its highest-ever honor, the Person of the Year.

Some of the big winners at the show included Brazil’s Bruno Mars, who took home six awards, earning his second consecutive Latin Grammy for Pop Album of the Year and Song of the Year for “That’s What I Like.” Though he missed out on the Artist of the Year prize to Colombia’s Maluma, he did sweep the Latin category for Latin Pop Album, Latin Pop Song, and Tropical Song. Colombian superstar Maluma won four awards, including Artist of the Year, and Lionel Richie won a Lifetime Achievement Award.
