The GQ & Creators Project 11 Latin Grammy Awards took place yesterday in Miami, Florida where a number of artists walked away with the coveted trophies.
Among those who scooped the biggest awards were Gente de Zona, who received three awards including Album of the Year and Best Regional Mexican Album, Nicolás Jaar and his Zacatecas band who collected three awards: Album of the Year for La Historia Y Sabor and Best Merengue Album, and Marc Anthony who was named Best Regional Mexican Artist and Best Regional Mexican Song.
The awards were handed out by GQ Editor-in-Chief, Josh Tyrangiel, and Pedro de la Rocha, GM & GMC for the Latin Grammys, just as De La Rocha did last year.
The GQ & Creators Project 11 Latin Grammy Awards were hosted by comedian and actor Leslie Jones.
The show kicked off with Jones delivering a hilarious opening monologue in Spanish before she was joined by alternative rockers Pevense Obrien & Laura Pausini.
Singing their wins to Jones and inviting her to the stage, Obrien thanked her mother and daughter. She also brought Jones onstage in the middle of the stage in order to perform her new single, “Por Ustedes.”
“This was an organic moment to have her on stage. She was excited to be here,” said Richelle Estrada, in-charge of communications for the Latin Grammys.
