John Legend brought his soulful sounds to the 2022 Latin Grammy Awards.
The singer and “The Voice” coach joined Sebastián Yatra to perform the bilingual version of “Tacones Rojos” (“Red Heels”) during the awards ceremony at the Michelob Ultra Arena at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas on Thursday, Nov. 17.
The song, which marked their first time collaborating, was released in March, with the music video dropping a month later.
Yatra — who, during the telecast, won best pop vocal album — kicked off the performance dressed in a sleek black ensemble with a white button-up shirt. After singing the first verse, Legend — in a black suit, white button-up and red shoes — appeared on staircase against a Vegas-inspired stage.
Singing his English verses, he walked down to join Yatra on the main stage.
The two artists were accompanied by a slew of dancers in black top hats, hot pants and tailcoat jackets and "red heels high" like the song goes. The dancers swayed to the catchy tune while twirling with their canes.
"John's the man," Yatra told TODAY after the awards show in the media room. "John's such a great human being, he's one of my favorite artists since forever. He's one of those people that have really done it all and has the capacity to fill your heart with his voice with just a couple notes."
Adding, "I can't wait to have that friendship keep going."
Prior to taking the stage, Legend looked stylish walking the red carpet. The singer arrived in a tan double-breasted suit with a black lapel and buttons.
The two were also photographed inside the venue, sitting next to each other.
Yatra previously told TODAY that working with Legend “was magical. He has the best attitude. We have a lot of things in common, and I admire John deeply.”
He added that the song “brings so much joy to the world.”
The collaboration proved to be fruitful and the two got the band back together, so to speak, for the remix of Legend’s song “Nervous.” The single was released in early November.
Yatra, meanwhile, was nominated for four Latin Grammys during the ceremony, hosted by Luis Fonsi, Thalia, Anitta and Laura Pausini.
Christina Aguilera, Rosalía, Rauw Alejandro and more also took the stage. Additionally, 95-year-old Angela Alvarez won best new artist. She tied with Silvana Estrada.
