Top 3 Political Moments of the Latin Grammys 2017: Residente Dedicates Award To 'Real MCs'

This year’s Latin Grammy Awards ceremony -- live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas -- was not without its fair share of political moments.

From Lin-Manuel Miranda to Alejandro Sanz, the 2017 Latin Grammys set the stage for a number of wildly can’t-miss moments that brought its viewers a healthy dose of social awareness. Peep the rundown:

Residente won best urban album of the year and gave a shout-out to "real rappers": "Art doesn’t have anything to do with numbers...I ask everyone to stop focusing on the number of followers, the amount of views...and start talking more about the music, the writers and the producers...”

Person of the year Alejandro Sanz performed alongside a bevy of DREAMers in an act of solidarity with undocumented immigrants.

Lin-Manuel Miranda accepted the Presidents award and sent a message to the White House: "Puerto Ricans are humans, too."
