Best: Camila Cabello Gives It Up for the Dreamers

The Grammys largely avoided references to President Trump or the partisan grudge-matches taking place daily on Capitol Hill. But before introducing U2's performance, Camila Cabello offered an urgent plea on behalf of the Dreamers, roughly 800,000 immigrants who are currently facing an uncertain fate due to Republican calls for increasingly restrictive immigration law. "Tonight in this room full of music's dreamers, we remember that this country was built by dreamers for dreamers chasing the American dream," Cabello said. "I'm here on this stage tonight because just like the Dreamers, my parents brought me to this country with nothing in their pockets but hope … I'm a proud Cuban-Mexican immigrant … and all I know is, just like dreams, these kids can't be forgotten and are worth fighting for." Many artists skirted around partisan politics, but Cabello showed the effectiveness of tackling the issues head on.
