She was wearing a tight but elegant black dress, with her long hair down and gold earrings. Meanwhile, 21 flamenco guitarists backed her up. Her performance was received with a standing ovation.
Notably, this marked the first time that the Latin Grammys were held internationally, outside the confines of the United States, adding an extra layer of importance to Rosalía's performance on home soil.
November 16 is also International Flamenco Day, a centuries-old genre that was born in Andalusia, which makes the night even more special.

Shakira promises to leave us speechless with her performance tonight, almost as much as she did with her golden armor look.
Karol G is the star of the Latin Grammy 2023
After her time on the red carpet, the Medellín native becomes the best dressed guest. And her look is the true example of this.
With two Latin Grammys to her name and multiple nominations, Karol G returns to the awards that celebrate Latin talent. If we talk about exponential voices, which beyond making the skin crawl, demonstrate feminine power, we must mention the expertise of the Colombian singer. With her notes it has allowed us to overcome breakups, learn to be empathetic with our gender and of course to feel very 'bugs'. Her lyrics have managed to overcome borders and eclipse the entire universe literally because 16 years later she has built a true legacy.
The Amargura singer starred in her entrance to the Latin Grammys looking like an expert in a short pink and metallic dress, signed by Balmain and inspired by its Spring-Summer 2024 collection. In addition, she added some transparent sneakers (or invisible shoes like we baptized the trend this year) who gave that unexpected twist to her outfit, looking fresh and fun with her bright minidress. The Colombian let her outfit shine on its own, since her styling was discreet with not very flashy makeup, wearing bangs and straight hair with shades of pastel pink, a color that has distinguished the musical era that began with her album, Tomorrow will be nice.
Her choice is an example of the stylistic evolution she has had, the same one that today positions her as a true prescriber and muse of the fashion industry. His impressive steps are behind his nominations: Record of the year with While me curo del cora, Album of the year and Best urban music album with Mañana will be nice, Song of the year and Best urban fusion/interpretation with TQG in a duet with Shakira, Best reggaeton performance with Gatúbela alongside Maldy, among others.
Karol G has been awarded the award for Best Urban Music Album with her work «Tomorrow will be nice.» It has been given to her by another great reference in Latin music: Yandel, and the artist has been excited because «this time a woman wins it.»
Winners of the 2023 Latin Grammy Awards
Seville has a special color and the 2023 Latin Grammy Awards much more. Because the first gala in history to celebrate these awards outside the United States was lived to the fullest in the Andalusian capital with hundreds of musical events, thousands of guests and entertainment stars, an award ceremony and a very red carpet. spectacular. All that remained was to meet the big winners of the night: the winners of the Latin Grammys.
And among the first winners are legends of the Latin music industry such as Bad Bunny, who won two gramophones for collaborations with Eladio Carrión (Best Rap/Hip-Hop Song) and with Grupo Frontera (Best Regional Mexican Song). The one from Puerto Rico thus equaled Natalia Lafourcade who swept the category dedicated to album and singer-songwriter song.
While those attending the pre-show or premiere that awarded the vast majority of categories celebrated the triumph of Karol G and Shakira for their TQG as Best Urban Fusion Song, our chest was filled with pride to see how a Spanish soloist also became a winner of the Latin Grammys 2023. Quevedo and Bizarrap collected their award for their historic 52nd session as Best Urban Song. «Thank you all for taking the song where you took it. I hope it is an example that you can come out of nowhere and fulfill a dream too," said the Canarian soloist.
As far as Spain is concerned, this year Pablo Alborán, Omar Montes, Quevedo, Beatriz Luengo, Alejandro Sanz, Arde Bogotá, Valeria Castro, Manuel Carrasco and Vanesa Martín are among the nominees and of course, also Rosalía, who will star in what will be one of the most anticipated performances of the night.
Rosalía has been in charge of opening the Latin Grammy 2023 with the performance of one of the best-known songs from Rocío Jurado's musical repertoire, such as Se nos roto el amor. A performance that Rauw Alejandro has witnessed and that has not gone unnoticed in social networks for a detail that has not left anyone indifferent. The artist has changed a part of the song, and it could be a kind of nod to her ex-partner. “Our love broke from using it so much or not using it,” she has sung. The original lyrics of the song 'la más grande' say the following: “Our love broke from using it so much.”
The Catalan has also caused a great sensation upon her arrival on the red carpet at the Latin Grammy 2023 thanks to her daring and spectacular outfit. Rosalía, nominated in the Recording of the Year category for Despechá, has delighted those present thanks to her black lace dress, with long sleeves and a train of the same color accompanied by matching stiletto heels. A dress that has no lining underneath it, so the cameras have been able to appreciate the underwear that the singer has chosen for this special night in the capital of Seville.
His laminated eyebrows with vertical cuts, zebra style, have unleashed a wave of reactions on social networks. The Latin Grammy has become the scene of the long-awaited reunion between Rosalía and Rauw Alejandro, who announced their breakup just a few months ago.
The singer, who is up for an award in the Best Urban Music Album category for Saturno, has also swept his arrival at the photocall of this ceremony. Rauw has landed with a black suit, the same color as Rosalía, sunglasses and matching shoes. The singer has left aside the traditional button-down shirt to decorate his outfit and has opted for a kind of knitted T-shirt, which makes him go with his chest exposed. His mother accompanied him on his way down the red carpet.
