We know what you’re thinking: Pitbull and Enrique Iglesias under one roof? On one stage? Trust us, it was nothing short of a fantasy come true. Latina.com got exclusive backstage access at the KTUPhoria mega concert featuring Mr. 305, Iglesias, Flo Rida, Calvin Harris, Dev and other performers at the PNC Bank Arts Center in New Jersey. The air was thick with pop lovers and sweaty dancers – including us.
While we're not ones to lose our cool (ahem), watching Iglesias live from backstage was not a far cry from a religious experience. The crowd went crazy as “Euphoria” balloons and confetti exploded in the sky, while the pop star sang his number one hit “Tonight (I’m Lovin’ You).” The Spanish pop star is known for bringing fans on stage and teasing them with a little PDA, but this time the lucky fan was a cute, little girl from the audience. They danced around the stage as she waved to her proud parents. Wait, wasn't it a school night? Sure, but we're sure the memory of dancing with Enrique on stage trumps nap time at daycare. You go, kid!
Next to perform was the one and only Pitbull, who was stopped by a little girl wanting a picture and an autograph before heading to his dressing room. We also got a preciosa shout-out from the Miami rapper during the meet and greet. Score!
Mr. 305 later came on stage rocking his trademark suit and dark sunglasses. A handful of Cuban flags waved around the crowd as the hip-hop star performed “International Love” and his latest soundtrack from Men in Black, “Back in Time.” Pitbull closed the night with an electrifying performance of “Give Me Everything.”
These fellas definitely gave it their all and left us, and countless of fans, satisfied.
