The 20th annual Latin Grammy Awards proved a big night for our faves. Bad Bunny was one of the ceremony's first big winners, picking up Best Urban Album for X100Pre and proving reggaeton has a place at the show. Rosalía had an even bigger night, winning Best Urban Song for "Con Altura" and Album of the Year for El Mal Querer.

In his acceptance speech, Bad Bunny dedicated his win to his genre. "Reggaeton is part of Latin music," he said. "To my colleagues, let's give it our all. The genre has become about views and numbers but we have to bring different things to the table." He later performed new single "Cantalo" with Ricky Martin, and Residente.
Rosalía, who won Best Alternative Song and Best Urban Fusion/Performance at the 2018 ceremony, thanked the Latin Grammys for their continued support in this year's acceptance speech. She and Shakira are the only women musicians to ever win Latin Album of the Year. The Spanish musician also performed a powerful medley of her songs "A Palé" and "Con Altura," to the crowd's delight.
Other big winners in Vegas last night included Alejandro Sanx and Camila Cabello's "Mi Persona Favorita" for Record of the Year and Song of the Year, and Pedro Capó's "Calma" for Best Urban Fusion/Performance.
