2019 Latin Grammy Awards: The best moments of the event

Chilean singer Mon Laferte, who took home the award for Best Alternative Music Album for Norma, turned heads on the red carpet for wearing a black coat exposing her breasts alongside a political message which read, "in Chile they torture, rape and kill." The 36-year-old Latin music artist made reference to the protests that recently took place in her country, where at least 20 people died in an effort of demanding better social services and fighting against inequality.

Colombian singer Juanes was honoured at the 2019 Latin Grammy Awards

Juanes, best known for his songs "Mala Gente" and "La Camisa Negra," accepted the Person of the Year Award, presented by the drummer and co-founder of heavy metal band Metallica, Lars Ulrich. "I met Juanes years ago, after performing in Mexico. And I have keenly watched his music, his creativity and his radiant humanity soar across this beautiful planet. Then I learned he was a Metallica fan!," said Ulrich.

Juanes, who also performed some of his greatest hits during the event, replied to Ulrich in a very sweet way, "I’m making music because of you guys! I remember sitting in my house 30 years ago in Medellín, being 15, being angry, and listening to Metallica all the time. I was obsessed!,” he said.
