Lilian Garcia at the Latin Grammys
Lilian Garcia was part of another star-studded evening last night at the Latin Grammy Awards at New York's Madison Square Garden.
"Last night can be summed with this -- there was a lot of Latino heat there!" Garcia told WWE.com. "It was great. It was an amazing, beautiful, unbelievable, unforgettable evening."
The RAW ring announcer walked the green carpet (green because it was sponsored by Heineken) before the show in a stunning L'impasse evening gown. She was there to promote her upcoming album which will be released in 2007. Photographers and crews from networks such as VH1, MTV2 and Univision were on the green carpet, where Garcia hung out with some of today's hottest Latino musical acts. She mingled with Shakira, Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, Victor Manuelle and Thalia, to name a few.
"There were tons of artists there, and it was just so great to hang out with them all," Garcia said.
It was the first time the Latin Grammys were held in New York City, and Garcia said it was the perfect setting. She raved about the awards show, and said everything from the sets to the performances were; amazing.
"Ricky Martin was so great. He had everybody standing," she said. "And Shakira with Alejandro Sanz -- they opened the show and that was terrific."
After the show, Garcia attended the People En Espanol after party. This morning, Garcia was elated to see a photo of herself at the Latin Grammys in the New York Post's Sports Extra Edition.
"I'm like, ‘Yay, I made it!' " she exclaimed. "Hopefully I'll end up in the best-dressed section in the magazines."
Her photo in the New York Post is just the icing on the cake of a perfect evening at the Latin Grammys for Garcia.
"The whole evening made me really proud to be Latina."
