At the end of the performance, they gave him the award for Best Artist of the Year. The Puerto Rican thanked him with the best speech of the night: “I always believed, from the beginning, that I could become great, that I could become one of the biggest stars in the world, without having to change my culture. , my language, my language, my jargon. I am Benito Antonio Martínez from Puerto Rico for the whole world,” said the exultant singer.

The broadcast of the gala was not devoid of incidents, such as the one suffered by the Italian group Måneskin, winners of Eurovision 2021, where the production censored, for several seconds, what was happening on stage with a long shot in which nothing could be seen. Victoria de Angelis, the bassist of the group, appeared with her chest exposed during the interpretation of Supermodel. Over it, he wore a heart-shaped nipple shield that apparently came off, as did the other side of his shirt while he played. What was not censored were the exposed buttocks of the singer, Damiano David, as well as his own nipples. De Angelis has appeared in topless at some Måneskin concerts.

The American singer Taylor Swift was the one who grabbed the most awards, deserving her song All Too Well the award for best video clip of the year as well as the distinctions for best long-form video and best direction.
