Thursday night, the 16th Annual Latin Grammy Awards went down with 32 performing artists and 47 total awards up for grabs. And even though the award ceremony mostly tends to celebrate the same artists year after year, we still tune in because whether we love it or not, it’s still one of the biggest industry nights of the year. Plus this year Will Smith brought his hot son Trent, who doesn’t live in the spotlight like his younger kids, Jaden and Willow.

Here’s a roundup of what you may have missed:


The Smiths Pulled a T Swift

The Smiths – Will, Jada Pinkett, and Trent – were enjoying themselves throughout the show. They got about as much air time as Taylor Swift at any award show, so they tried to bring their A-game.


Bomba Estéreo and Will Smith Performed

Bomba and Will Smith delivered a high-energy performance at the Latin Grammys, which was introduced by Zoe Saldaña.



Rita Moreno Displayed Her Love of Reggaeton

She is less than a month away from being 84, and she’s a hardcore reggaeton fan. Don’t believe her, then watch her dance. ?


Mana and Tigres del Norte Got Political

Mana and Tigres del Norte performed and got the Smiths moving, but they also used the performance as a chance to make a comment about Latinos’ voting power. They blasted Trump with one simple sign.


Natalia Lafourcade Killed It

She took home four out of the five awards she was nominated for, including Record of the Year.


Snapchat Got in on the Action

The Latin Grammys Snapchat featured celebrity and everyday people’s snaps, so it’s good mix from the show.


Farruko Became Hip Urkel

J Balvin, MØ, Farruko, and Major Lazer performed, but Farruko kinda stole the spotlight with his hip Urkel getup.
