Miami was the place to be on Thursday night! Some of the hottest stars in the Latino music industry walked the 2016 Premio Lo Nuestro’s magenta carpet and we loved every second of it! Raúl De Molina, Chiquinquirá Delgado, Tony Dandrades and William Valdés were some of the hosts in charge of giving presenters, nominees, and guest celebrities a warm welcome before the real party began.

Once inside the American Airlines Arena, hosts Galilea Montijo and Arath De La Torre took over the stage and graciously entertained attendees throughout the rest of the night. This year, the viewing audience was treated to some of the biggest surprises we’ve seen during the award season. As we say in Mexico, Univision ahora sí se puso guapo!

Among some of the best moments of the night were, the opening number with Pitbull, Farruko, Joe Perry and Robin Thicke combining two musical cultures on stage. Thalía and Maluma performing their catchy new single “Desde Esa Noche.” Prince Royce’s return to his bachata roots with “Culpa Al Corazón.”

As the night went on, the amazing display of Latino talent just kept getting better and better with Carlos Vives’ performance, who was joined by Juanes, Fonseca, Silvestre, Jorge Celedon, ChocQuibTown, Maluma, J Balvin, and some of the most recognized soccer players on stage before accepting his award. Also among our favorite moments of the night were Sin Bandera’s reunion and Paquita La Del Barrio’s special tribute presented by the one and only, Gloria Trevi, who also delighted the audience with her single  “El Amor.”
