The Premio lo Nuestro awards, hosted by Angélica Vale y Jaime Camil, aired last night on Univision and it gave Spanish-language TV stars a chance to shine as well as a some of our tried and true favorite Latino pop musicians. Ricky Martin got emotional when he accepted his award for Icono del Año. During his acceptance speech he reflected on the years he spent in the spotlight, and how the last year has been so emotional for him since he came out publically.

Jen Carlos Canela made history as the first Telemundo star to win an award at the Univision-heavy Premio Lo Nuestro, taking home the Revelación del Año prize. Maná performed two songs that the public voted on and promised that their new album would be out soon.

The big winners of the night were Wisin & Yandel, Camila, Banda El Recodo y and Prince Royce, who all cleaned up with three awards each.  Congrats to all the winners!

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
