Grammys 2019: Watch Camila Cabello Open Show With Theatrical ‘Havana’ Performance

Camila Cabello opened the Grammy Awards from the inside of a brownstone reimagined as a colorful dollhouse. She shifted through the rooms before taking to the “street,” where she ran into J Balvin reading a paper with the headline “Build Bridges Not Walls.”

Young Thug joined to perform a verse as Cabello nimbly danced throughout the street. Soon, the opening act turned into a medley of Latin pop superstars: Ricky Martin joined to belt alongside Cabello as Arturo Sandoval played on his trumpet before J Balvin did a bit of his smash hit “Mi Gente.”

Balvin is nominated for Record of the Year for “I Like It,” his collaborative single with Cardi B and Bad Bunny. While he only received one nod at the 2019 Grammys, he recently earned eight nominations at the 2018 Latin Grammy Awards — including Record of the Year (“Mi Gente” with Willy William; “X” with Nicky Jam), Album of the Year and Best Urban Music Album (for his fifth LP, Vibras).
