The 2023 Latin Grammys are a wrap. This year, there was no one big winner. Karol G, Shakira and Natalia Lafourcade tied with three major awards each. Venezuelan singer-songwriter Joaquina won best new artist. So you could say that women were the big winners of the night.
Karol won album of the year and best urban album for Mañana Será Bonito, and “TQG,” her collaboration with Shakira, won best urban/fusion performance. Meanwhile, Shakira won song of the year and best pop song along with Bizarrap for “Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53.” As for Lafourcade, she won best singer-songwriter album for De Todas Las Flores and best singer-songwriter song for the track of the same name. She also won record of the year for “De Todas Las Flores.”

The show, co-hosted by Danna Paola, Sebastián Yatra, Roselyn Sánchez and Paz Vega, was held for the first time outside the United States in Seville, Spain, on Thursday (Nov. 16). The 24th annual awards show took place at the Conference and Exhibition Centre (FIBES) and aired on Univision, UniMás and Galavisión.
Many of the awards went as expected. Mexican hitmaker Edgar Barrera won the first-ever songwriter of the year award and producer of the year. Shakira and Bizarrap’s “BZRP Music Sessions #53” took song of the year. And Karol G won album of the year for her history-making Mañana Será Bonito. “I want to say that it is an honor to receive this in front of so many people that I admire in music,” Karol said in her speech, visibly emotional. “To have the album of the year is too cool. This album is super special, it changed my life. Thank you all very much.”
While the Latin Recording Academy got it right in many of the categories, there were a few snubs and surprises. See below:
