The previous show of the 61st edition of the Grammy Awards, the event before the great music ceremony, where 75 of the 84 awards are announced, left as winners to artists such as Lady Gaga, Brandi Carlile, Argentina's Claudia Brant or Mexico's Luis Miguel.

Gaga won two trophies in the categories of Best Song Written for a Visual Medium ("Shallow", shared with Bradley Cooper) and Best Solo Pop Performance, for "Joanne".

For her part, Claudia Brant won the award for Best Latin Pop Album, thanks to "Sincera".

"This album never dealt with the number of reproductions, the number of followers or the number of songs in the charts, this album consisted of making great music, it's a miracle that we're here", said the artist on stage at the Teatro Nokia, where the event took place.

In addition, the Best Latin Album of Rock, Urban or Alternative Music went to "Aztlán" by Zoé, while the Best Regional Mexican Music Album was "¡México por siempre!" by Luis Miguel.

Also, "Anniversary", by Spanish Harlem Orchestra, won the Best Tropical Latin Album.

In other categories of interest, "Sweetener", by Ariana Grande, left its mark as Best Pop Vocal Album, and the Best Video statuette was achieved by "This is America" by Childish Gambino.

The singer from Los Angeles Beck also reached his space with two awards (Best Alternative Music Album and Best Musical Engineering in a Non-Classical Music Album, both for "Colors"), while Brandi Carlile, the most nominated woman (six) of the day, shone with three consecutive awards in American Music categories.

On the other hand, the Latin Lucy Kalantari and her band, the Jazz Cats, won in the category of Best Album for Children, with "All the Sounds", while Sting and Shaggy won the trophy for the Best Reggae Album, "44/876".

A highlight came with the album "American Dreamers: Voices Of Hope, Music Of Freedom" by John Daversa and his Big Band, formed by "dreamers" as immigrants are known to benefit from the Action program Deferred for Arrivals in Childhood (DACA), which triumphed as the Best Jazz Album for a Large Group.

This work was conceived as an opportunity to show the talent of 53 young foreigners, from 17 different countries, who became musical prodigies.

Doug Davis, producer of the album, said that these young people are "talented and courageous role models" and indicated that winning a Grammy is something "incredible for an American citizen, but transcendental for an undocumented person".

Another emotional moment came with the award for the Best Rock Performance, destined for the late Chris Cornell, winner for "When Bad Does Good", a trophy that was picked up by his children.

And finally, the former US President Jimmy Carter was named winner in the field of Best Spoken Album, for "Faith - A Journey For All".
