El David Aguilar Thought His 5 Latin Grammy Nominations Were a Prank: Watch

El David Aguilar never thought he’d be nominated for a Latin Grammy, let alone in five categories. The Mexican indie artist was one of the top nominees of the night, including song of the year and album of the year. On the red carpet, El David admitted he thought it was all a joke.

“I come from a very underground scene,” he told Billboard. “Being here with five nominations and performing in the ceremony is like destiny was way too good to me.”

El David, who performed "Telefonia" next to Jorge Drexler, Mon Laferte and Natalia Lafourcade, said he was opening a show for Mon in Argentina when he got the good news. “I felt like it was April Fools' Day,” he said, also revealing that it was his first time in Las Vegas.
