Many of you who weren’t watching Ronda Rousey show up at the WWE Royal Rumble were probably too busy watching the Grammys or, you know, not watching TV. If you were one of those watching the Grammys, you got to see Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi perform their hit song “Despacito.”

Sadly, “Despacito” did not take home a Grammy award despite being nominated in three categories — something that made many people very upset.

However, on the positive side for fans of “Despacito” this morning, is the fact that the performance of the song at the Grammys is currently trending on Google because people want to know, “Who was the “Despacito” dancer?”

Well, if you had been paying attention back in August you would know that the woman who was dancing on stage during the performance was none other than 2006 Miss Universe Zuleyka Rivera.

Rivera, who was Miss Puerto Rico, before claiming the title of Miss Universe, also appeared in the music video for “Despacito,” the most viewed video on YouTube with 4.76 views.

She also has been acting in telenovelas pretty regularly since winning the title, except for the brief period where she was pregnant and had a baby with her then boyfriend Dallas Mavericks point guard J.J. Barea.

And now you know who the dancer was on stage during the performance of “Despacito” during the Grammys.
