Juan Luis Guerra will save us from the end of the world!
This year at the Latin Grammys green carpet, aside from who will win which award, we couldn’t help but wonder: if the world really does come to an end in December as the Mayans predicted, will this be the last time these celebs walk the carpet?
We certainly hope not, but if it is, then we needed to know one thing: what would be on their End of The World playlists – which artists would they turn to for the ultimate and final party?
One trend we saw: Juan Luis Guerra! As Univision’s Lourdes Stephen put it: “He always carries this message of peace, of hope, of salvation.” And he delivered that very message during his performance of “En El Cielo No Hay Hospital.”

What’s in your suitcase: ChocQuibTown’s Goyo
Latin Grammys are just as much about the music as they are about the fashion, so we snuck into one of our favorite band’s room to see which looks they’re going to be rocking this week in Las Vegas.
Colombian hip-hop group ChocQuibTown, beloved at home in Choco and all around Latin America, is nominated in three categories this year – Album of the Year (Eso Es Lo Que Hay), Record of the Year (“Calentura,” featuring Tego Calderon and Zully Murillo), and Best Alternative Music Album.
But they’re not exactly new at this Latin Grammy thing. In 2009, they were up for Best New Artist, and they won Best Alternative Song in 2010 for “De Donde Vengo Yo.”
The band’s Colombian pride manifests itself strongly in the fashion choices of its lead singer Gloria Martinez (a.k.a. Goyo), as we were able to see firsthand during our visit to her hotel room in Vegas. “It’s really important for me to support local designers,” Goyo told me yesterday, right before our Twitcam with the group. If you missed it, check out the full, unedited video here.
The trio of Goyo, her brother Slow, and her hubby Tostao, had so much fun answering fan questions on Twitter, and shared everything from their favorite foods to their dreams of a possible collaboration with Calle 13, and even breaking into an awesome acapella of “Hasta El Techo” (fast foward to minute 14:00 of the Twitcam video)!
But first, I got an exclusive look at Goyo’s wardrobe for the rest of the week. She makes the best dressed list in my book for all of her originality and support of local designers.
