Bad Bunny stuns Grammys 2023 with all-Spanish opening act | New York Post
- Published on Feb 4, 2023 veröffentlicht
- Was it going to be Adele? Was it going to be Harry Styles? Or was it going to be the ever-elusive Beyoncé opening the 65th annual Grammy Awards at Crypto.com Arena - the first time the show has been held in LA since COVID shut the world down?
In fact, the primo placement went to Puerto Rican sensation Bad Bunny, who made history with “Un Verano Sin Ti,” the first Spanish-language LP to be nominated for Album of the Year.
And now, he’s making Grammys’ history with what might be the most full-throttle all-Spanish opening extravaganza ever.
Kicking off his medley of “El Apagon” and “Despues De La Playa,” Bad Bunny, 28, brought the fiesta through the audience - no social distancing in 2023! - Bad Bunny made up for his no-show at last November’s American Music Awards, where he was the top nominee.

Hispanics at home or at work: 🥳🤠🎉 💃 🕺🔥🤩👁️👀
Don't talk for all hispanics, bro
Te falto la bandera de P.R 🇵🇷
He did amazing!!! Puerto Rican and Caribbean flavor at the Grammys...
Es un orgullo la música latina la verdad q si y Taylor se ve q lo disfrutó
En todo caso, la música caribeña.
@Memo Trujillo ¿Cuál es el problema con los puertorriqueños? Lo dices como si ser de esta isla hermosa fuese denigrante. Y para nada lo es. 🇵🇷
@Laley Hernández díaz solo gente sin conocimiento de musica lo escucha
@Memo Trujillo eso tu lo dices pero el vende más q todos
@JohzuaJabbarTV si lo se.. tienen buena musica.. bachata... merengue... pero bad bonny es una porqueria de artista y es puerto riqueño
Thanks for the cardio session Bad Bunny! Te amo!
Coño metio el merengue en loa grammy 🇩🇴
That's Toño Rosario y Omega Style merengue. I'm so proud to see Taylor Swift Jamming to a real Dominican rhythm 💯
Ya Taylor swift buscando su next ex
Nosotros los Dominicanos menospreciando nuestra música y los extranjeros se inspiran de ella! Hasta La Rosalia puso Dembow Dominicano en el desfile Louis Vuitton! Nosotros los Dominicanos somos durísimo en Música y flow! Tenemos que ponernos para eso. Nuestro sabor le gusta a casi todo el mundo.
Un Verano Sin Ti was album of the year in my book and it isn't even close!
Amor para ti Bad Bunny DR🇩🇴
*1:46:34** Let’s just take a minute to appreciate how much time and effort was placed in this video!?*
*It is incredible, and I consider they justify much more than that*
Antes no me gustaba, y ahora lo amo ♥️
He did amazing!!! Puerto Rican and Caribbean flavor at the Grammys... 🇵🇷❤️
@TruthHurts 💯%That is DOMINICAN RHYTHM~ Lots of Thanks to “Bad Bunny” for bringing the DOMINICAN MERENGUE to the Grammy’s, but the the DIRECTOR OF THE BAND, WHO ALSO WAS AT THE PIANO, N WHO WROTE THE MUSIC IS 💯% DOMINICAN.
Darling, that music is straight up Dominican. Only Bad Bunny is Puerto Rican but still...
Dominican🇩🇴merengue amor para ti por llevar nuestros merengues a los Grammy ❤
El rompió el tipo 🔥🔥🔥🔥
Muy orgulloso de nuestro hermano el apechao muy merecido, Bad bunny atro nivel, gracias por ponel el merengue en alto, Puerto Rico sigue impulsando nuestra musica por los grandes escenarios, Thanks PR
Ya el merengue habia llegado lejos mijo. Siempre ha sido un genero mundial. Ningun Bad Bunny. Dejen de ser tan lambones. Al menos que te refieras a los Grammys Americanos? Ahi si te la doy...
This is the vibes you get from the Dominican Republic 🇩🇴 and Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 get you up and dance 🕺 until you get tired 💃🕺🎹🥁🎺🎸🎷🪘
You know it, it’s how we do it!!
Just watching Bad Bunny open the Grammys took me from being a 70 year old to feeling 20 years old again !😎💋💋VIVA da Bunny!
Ain’t no way Taylor Swift started dancing
I'm American and raised in Los Angeles were used to this and love when this music randomly comes on 😂💗
It would have been nice to hear his performance in Spanish but thanks for the info
Muy duro, fuera de Serie, felicidades Bad buny , mucha salud!! Digan lo que digan pero tienes flow!!
Eso se llama romper!!! Dale Bunny :)
❤️ him and Harry were great
Harry didn’t had any vocal cords
BadBunny you had a Amazing Open ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤
Rocked the whole house
No he didn't
Es imposible resistirse a este ritmo Arriva RD y PR y Latinoamérica completa ❤❤❤🎉🎉🎉🎉
La Música Dominicana es la mas influéncial de latino america! Que bueno que Bad Bunny se identifica con nuestra música. El Dembow Dominicano también llegó al desfile Louis Vuitton🎉🎉. El Caribe hispano Poniéndola! Arriba Puerto Rico, República Dominicana y Cuba!
@JohzuaJabbarTV Exactly. Numbers can be manipulated in the stream era very easily. I am not saying this is the case for Bad Bunny though. But it is a fact that the stan fanbases will easily inflate the streams numbers by just clicking a button in Spotify and played the same song over and over. There are articles about it. Look at BTS. Another artist inflated by the streaming. Actually, now that I mention them, BTS must be the #1 artist in the planet too since 2020 going for the same metric. They have sell more records and chart better than Bunny in the USA and Europe. I would like to see what the Benito stans will say about this.
@TruthHurts This is the issue with hispanics. You guys really love putting others down because it’s not you’re guy at the top. Is there beef w Dominicans and Puerto Ricans because this is some crazy hostility here.
Also, if he ain’t selling out shows in Europe then what does that say about other Latin artists? Exactly. You would think one would want Bad Bunny to be more global that way it paves the way for your fav artists to get on that wave. 🤔 hmmm
Keep finding it laughable though because he is the number 1 artist in the world. And charts do matter. You just simply hate the numbers telling you different from whatever delusions you feed yourself because it’s shows how much reach a Puerto Rican artist you hate has.
@BlueDreamKush23 The charts mean nothing my friend. Bad Bunny will never be able to sell a whole stadium in Europe unless the whole Latino community attends. That's why I find laughable when some say he is the #1 artist in the world right now. Most of those streams im Spotify don't come from Europe, Asia and netheir Africa. Justin Bieber, Drake, Sheridan, those are to me more global artists.
@BlueDreamKush23 He is right though. Bad Bunny was the one inserting into Dominican culture and this performance is the example. Most of the rest of his comments are on point as well. And yeah, I too agree that PR is the main powerhouse in Latin music right now and has been for a while. Before the 2000s it used to be Mexico and way before Fildel Cuba. Colombia is catching up and at one point I really thought they were about to displace Puerto Rico as the #1 powerhouse. But the BadBunnymania is still going on. I still don't see it. J. Balvin and Maluma already peaked. Anyways, It looks like the Latin scene is changing. I think reggaeton pop is starting to die out.
@Enjoy Life I'm Not wishing anything that isn't already a reality in everyone's faces.
Eso es para que el negocio de la música sepa que este es el ritmo más Internacional se llama merengue así lo saben los grandes artistas gracias Bad Bonny que chulo
Sobrosura 🇵🇷 💪🔥
El esta haciendo mas por el merengue que los dominicanos.
Por una can soon. Ok…
yo soy dominicano y de verdad son ciertas tus palabras es lamanteble eso
Wish I was there!
Dope Afff 😎🙏
So stunning and brave.
Urban Merengue Time 🇩🇴 🇵🇷
Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 🇵🇷 🇵🇷 making history in the Grammys👌
@ThunderGuy616 What Puerto Rican artists have influenced merengue? None. But it is true that your island loves merengue...
With Dominican music. I agree.
Puerto Rico está bien cabronnnnn 🇵🇷🇵🇷🇵🇷🇵🇷
lección para los "urbanos" del patio, miren como este puertorriqueño hizo suyo este merengue, si fueran, los alfa, los rochy, el otro chimbalo o como se llame, hubieran hecho un ruido con su "musica", en ese escenario, gracias Bad Bunny, me hiciste fan de tu musica
Si pagas un estudio y un buen programa de ordenador para cantar...hasta tu triunfarias...eso si vocaliza por favor no hagas como él que no sele entiende
This sounds like the stuff I dance to at my friends…in Southern California which isn’t his normal mix of music right?
This type of music is “Merengue Urbano” from 🇩🇴 Dominican Republic. Bad Bunny work together a dominican producer: Dahian El Apechao.
Boricuas in the house! 🇵🇷
And now we'll see what the ratings for the Grammy's look like tomorrow.
@Genghis Can! 12.4 million is dismal. Between the 1970s and 2000s the ratings were consistently between 20 and 40 million, and that was with less population. A slight increase from the dismal low of last year is still terrible ratings.
@Max MX Incorrect, 12.4 million is dismal. Between the 1970s and 2000s the ratings were consistently between 20 and 40 million, and that was with less population. A slight increase from the dismal low of last year is still terrible ratings.
Ratings up 30 percent over last year, making it the largest audience since covid
Ratings were great Brandon 🤣🤣
Harry Styles speech shows how he is so humble, respectful, genuine and kind. Bad Bunny was amazing! Lizzo - You rock. And the Old-school rappers wee awesome.
Puerto Rico número 1 Puñeta Representando a los latinos 🔥 🔥 🔥
you really can fix a mans mood, I love your videos
I think it's time to stream Allen Mitchell Gardner on all platforms. It's only right for me to introduce one of the most amazing things you didn't know was amazing. Enjoy your day, cheerio!
They really used the sensory fruit music 😂
Triste no ganara mejor álbum lo merecía era mejor producción musical los demás es más de lo mismo el fue creativo mezclando ritmos y sonidos un álbum espectacular pero mucho prejuicio ser en español
That is the RESISTANCE
Why would the person who's responsible for his death be allowed to perform the tribute, allegedly? This world and the music industry is a mess ...
Represent!♥️ Keep the diversity going.
“Ahora todos quieren ser latino', no, Pero les falta sazón
Batería y reggaetón.” -Bad Bunny
Si. Pero esta musica no es reggaeton. Es merengue urbano.
Viva el Merengue Dominicano🇩🇴🇩🇴🇩🇴🇩🇴🇩🇴🇩🇴 Gracias Bad Bunny!
@OLTEB Ya sabemos que Bad Bunny es boricua. Pero esta musica es 100% dominicana. El solo puso la voz.
Amazing video and thank you for breaking it down!! Despite the economic downturn, I'm so happy 😊I have been earning $ 60,000 returns from my $9,000 investment every 21days.
@Andremacgregor Thank you for this. Will definitely reach out to him now. Thanks again
Trade with him and remember to share testimonies with others ☝️😊..🇺🇸🇺🇸
Oh yeah he is always active on Whats-app APK🇺🇲
Great, singing Mexican for a mostly English audience. Thank you so much. It’s not insulting at all…
It's Spanish, S-PA-NISH! There's no Mexican language. We all speak Spanish, with many differences, but it's the same language...
Bad bunny t AMO

Nah, there's no chance Taylor Swift bust out her dance moves, that's for sure.
LFG! NYPost Welcome to El Calentón!🇵🇷🇵🇷🇵🇷🇵🇷🇵🇷
He dressed appropriately. This awards show is nothing special and his mom jeans, tshirt and backwards hat sent that message. Click.
Why would this be stunning when they probably rehearsed 5 times?
Because gringos could NEVERRRR bring that much flavor even if they rehearsed 100 times 🤣
That's my people there!!!
Imagine being a woman and singing his music out loud 😳
Do not watch the self praise of award shows.
Yeah bc Benito is Esmart y Esexy also!

I feel like Gloria Estefan is being erased from history
I like the vibe even though I didn't understand all what he was saying but don't get mad because not all people speak Spanish. We trying.
Wa la outfit del conejo malo está 10/10
