2013 Grammy Awards: Miguel, Juanes win but J. Lo’s dress steals the show

Jennifer Lopez, Miguel, Juanes and other Latino celebrities gathered to honor achievement and celebrate success during the music industry’s biggest evening, making the 2013 Grammy Awards one of the most star-studded events of the year.

The 55th Annual Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles kicked off on a high note, with Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull taking the stage to present the evening’s first award, for “Best Solo Performance.

Lopez wore a risqué black dress with a sky-high slit by designer Anthony Vaccarello that nearly defied a clothing advisory set by ceremony broadcaster CBS, which earned her a few admiring remarks (“¡Estas bellisima!”) from co-presenter Pitbull.

And in an “only at the Grammy Awards” moment, the 43-year-old was even named good luck by winner Adele.

“My good luck charm – J. Lo!” exclaimed the British songstress upon accepting her trophy for the chart-topping single “Set Fire to the Rain.”

R&B artist Miguel Pimentel – who was nominated for five Grammy Awards, including “Best Urban Cotemporary Album” – was one of the night’s early winners, scooping up “Best R&B Song” for “Adorn.”

“It’s huge, just to be nominated. I’m already on cloud nine,” the R&B artist told E! News’ Giuliana Rancic on the red carpet.

Pimentel – who in previous years had been nominated for his song writing – not only sang a soulful, live renedition of “Adorn” during the evening but also presented the award for “Best Country Solo Performance,” which went to “American Idol” alum Carrie Underwood.

Also rocking the stage at the ceremony was “Best Latin Pop Album, Rock or Urban” winner Juanes, in his first Grammy performance to date. Bruno Mars also made music history, joining forces with Rihanna and rocker Sting in a tribute to reggae artist Bob Marley.

With multiple categories honoring the best in Latin music, several all-stars took home an iconic gold-plated gramophone trophy.

Lila Downs won for “Best Regional Mexican or Tejano Album” with her release “Pecados y Milagros,” and Marlow Rosado Y La Riqueña beat Romeo Santos in the race for “Best Tropical Album.” And the award for “Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album” went to Los Angeles-based band, Quetzal for their album “Imaginaries.”
