After half a century of artistic career, Julio Iglesias has suffered one of the biggest disappointments of his entire life in recent days. The program Así es la vida, on Telecinco, has recounted the reasons why the singer would be especially sad at present, and which are directly related to the celebration of the Latin Grammy Awards in the city of Seville.
According to the evening television program, Julio has not been invited to the awards ceremony, which takes place this Thursday in the Andalusian capital. This is a strong blow for the artist, considered the most international Spanish star, since it is the first time that these prestigious awards are held in the country.
Julio Iglesias not only will not receive any of these awards on such an important night for Latin music, but he has not been invited to the gala either. "Sources close to the singer would assure that he is outraged by this decision," they reveal from the program presented by Sandra Barneda in the afternoons of Telecinco.
The singer just celebrated his 80th birthday just a few weeks ago, so it would have been the perfect anniversary to pay tribute to his entire musical career, which is now close to 50 years, as reported in Así es la vida. The program has reviewed the figures of his career: 80 albums, more than 300 million copies sold and performances in 14 languages.
Instead, the Latin Grammys have decided to pay tribute to the Italian singer Laura Pausini, who will experience "the best night of her life." A professional setback for Julio Iglesias that comes at a time when his state of health has been questioned, something that the artist quickly denied: "in a polite way for those who have raised doubts about my health, I would tell them that I am dpm", he wrote on his networks.
The last time Julio went on stage was four years ago, just as he remembered, This is life. It happened in Chicago in 2019, so since the pandemic, the artist has been away from the media spotlight. This could be, according to the Telecinco space, the reason why he will not be present in any way at the Latin Grammy 2023.
