The 6 Best Moments From the Billboard Latin Music Awards

Prince Royce and Don Omar both cleaned up with eight awards each, but what moments had us on the edge of our seats (and dancing in them)? 

1. Billboard Moments: Pitbull

Pitbull’s Opening Performance

We think the “Manos Pa’rriba” performance speaks for itself, but we'll just say he definitely started the night off right for us. It was on fire (literally).



2. Billboard Moments: Marc Anthony

Marc Anthony’s Award (and PDA)

Marc Anthony was honored by Billboard and presented with a Billboard Hall of Fame award to recognize his music’s influence. Before accepting, he planted one on his girlfriend, Shannon de Lima (and then wiped his mouth. Oops!) 

3. Billboard Moments: Don Omar

Don Omar

Don Omar’s medley of songs was a winner in our books. Our favorite was his performance with Loailwa Braz, who sang the original hit version of “Lambada”.


4. Billboard Moments: Prince Royce

Prince Royce

Prince Royce performed “Incondicional”, and yeah, loving it would be an understatement. 

5. Billboard Moments: Paulina Rubio

Paula Rubio Performs “Boys Will Be Boys”

If you didn’t know already, we’re completely loving Rubio’s new single. And the star performed the song for the first time at the award show. (We may or may not have been dancing while watching.)

6. Billboard Moments: A.B. Quintanilla

The Selena Tribute

Selena’s brother, A.B. Quintanilla, spoke a few words about his sister at the ceremony.  Samo and Cristian Castro covered the late singer’s songs, including and “Amor Prohibido” and “Como la Flor”, respectively.  Castro’s performance had several Selena look-a-likes as background singers, which was a little strange, but we loved Samo’s performance.
