Premios Billboard 2016
The Billboard Latin Music Awards will air on Telemundo and this is what we know about the show so far... Telemundo

Telemundo is throwing a huge musical bash to celebrate the best in Latin music with Premios Billboard 2016. The event will be hosted at the BankUnited Center at the University of Miami and the official presenters will be Gaby Espino and Pedro Fernández. Both will be joined by huge stars that will walk the red carpet, present awards, receive trophies and best of all perform on stage. This year organizers of the event have dubbed it "Billboard Duets." What does that mean? That all performers will be collaborating with another artist.
