AceShowbiz - Camila Cabello was an early winner at the Latin Grammys on Thursday, November 14, picking up the Best Pop Song award before the ceremony had even begun in Las Vegas.
During a pre-ceremony presentation, she and Spanish pop star Alejandro Sanz were awarded the trophy for their collaboration "Mi Persona Favorita".
Rosalia was also a winner heading into the event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, scoring honours for Best Contemporary Pop Vocal Album and Best Packaging for "El Mal Querer", and bachata legends Juan Luis Guerra and 4.40 claimed the Best Tropical Song for their 2019 single "Kitipun".
Chilean singer Mon Laferte won the Best Alternative Album for "Norma", and during her acceptance speech, she read out a poem written by an unnamed friend, dedicated to those fighting government repression in Chile.
The 36-year-old shocked on the red carpet by exposing her bare chest, on which she'd written "en Chile torturan violan y matan" (in Chile they torture, rape, and kill) with a black marker pen.
Hundreds of people have been killed in recent months while protesting police brutality and corruption in Chile.
Early winners also included Fonseca (Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album for "Agustin"), Pedro Capo & Farruko (Best Urban Fusion/Performance for "Calma" (Remix), Andres Calamaro (Best Pop/Rock Album for "Cargar La Suerte"), and Calamaro & German Wiedemer (Best Rock Song for "Verdades Afiladas").
