Colombian superstar Juanes has been confirmed as a performer at the 57th edition of the GRAMMYs. But the exciting news don’t end there; this will be the first time a full song in Spanish will be performed in the award show’s history! President and CEO of The Recording Academy, Neil Portnow, said, “He’s a two-time GRAMMY winner and has been awarded 20 Latin GRAMMYs, so we’re extremely excited to have Juanes joining the group of artists who will be performing at the 57th annual Grammy award ceremony.”

The Colombian superstar performed an English-Spanish version of Elton John’s "Your Song" in the 2013 ceremony, and says it’s “a dream come true” to be invited back to that stage. "I'm very excited. I can't believe this is going to happen. You know, I've been waiting for this moment for many years and we are very excited now that it's about to come, to happen," Juanes said while speaking to The Associated Press in an interview at his recording studio in Miami. "We are performing a new song called 'Juntos,' ('Together') which is the song we made for the upcoming Disney movie “McFarland, USA,”” he continued.

Juanes, who is also nominated for Best Latin Pop Album for his album titled “Loco de Amor” (“Crazy for Love”), took to his social media and posted a video on Vine announcing the exciting news that he’ll be singing in Spanish, “From Colombia to the world!”
