Juanes To Make Latin Music History At Grammys


Colombian rocker Juanes is set to make history at the Grammy Awards when he becomes the first singer to perform a full song in Spanish at the ceremony.

The La Camisa Negra hitmaker has been confirmed as a performer for the 57th annual Grammys on Sunday (08Feb15), and he will take the stage with a new song called Juntos (Together), which he recorded for Kevin Costner’s upcoming Disney film MCFarland, Usa.

Juanes, who previously performed an English-Spanish version of Elton John’s Your Song at the 2013 prizegiving, tells the Associated Press that it is a “dream come true” to be invited back to music’s biggest night.

He says, “I’m very excited. I can’t believe this is going to happen. You know, I’ve been waiting for this moment for many years and we are very excited now that it’s about to come, to happen.”

Not only will Juanes be making history at the Grammys, but he is also nominated for Best Latin Pop Album for his record Loco de Amor.

He’s already a two-time Grammy winner and the recipient of 20 Latin Grammys.
