Mon (born Norma Monserrat Bustamante Laferte) also wore a green handkerchief around her neck to reportedly support the legalization of abortion.

Laferte's protest was in support of Chilean rights as the South American country enters the month-mark of mass demonstrations demanding a new constitution.

The Paisaje Japonés belter - who boasts 10.5M social media followers - is the most listened to Chilean artist on Spotify worldwide and she hoped to bring attention to the crisis.

Ahead of the Univision-broadcast ceremony, Mon scored her second Latin Grammy trophy - this time for her sixth studio album Norma - which won best alternative music album.

'What emotion...[Thanks] to my colleagues and especially to the public, the people, the fans that are there, without people nothing could happen,' Laferte said (in Spanish) onstage the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
