Se Habla Música: 2013 Billboard Latin Music Awards recap

¡¡¡¡¡VIVA LATINO!!!!   

This past Thursday the stars descended upon Miami for the annual Billboard Latin Music awards.  Now being the total music junkie that I am, I was super excited for this awesome music event! I have had my Billboard Latino CD blaring in my car for weeks in anticipation.

No cares given.  

It's amazing because, no matter the region or countries of origin, these kinds of awards bring together the biggest stars of Latin music onto one stage to celebrate the music that makes us who we are as a people!  

And I'm always down with that!

Not to mention the amazing live performances and touching tributes. If you missed it, here's a quick recap of the festivities and winners:

~Brazilian artist Michel Teló took home the award for Song of the year with his hit (and my personal favorite) "Ai Se Eu Te Pego".

~Also nominated for this award was Don Omar for his collab with Natty Natasha for the song "dutty love".
~Though not a winner for Song of the Year,  Don Omar had a major night scooping up a total of ten yes, that was TEN, Latin Billboard awards including Latin Rhythm Album of the Year and Latin Rhythm Artist of the Year.

~"Fast&Furious 6" co-stars Michelle Rodriguez and Vin Diesle made an appearance announcing Don Omar's Victory as Male Artist of the Year........ but can we just be honest and and talk about how Vin Diesel's speech was super weird and awkward??!  I mean, he seemed to be having some technical issues with the height of the microphone.  Luckily, Michelle Rodriguez looked so stunningly elegant and spoke so eloquently that I nearly forgot the uncomfortable two minutes leading up to that moment.  

~I guess you could say that the night's biggest winner was the late Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera who was killed in a tragic airplane accident in Mexico late last year.

~Jenni Rivera was awarded with six Latin Billboard awards and nominated for ten awards, including two nominations for Album of the Year and two for Mexican regional album of the year.

~The honors continued pouring in as many music stars and industry professionals payed a warm tribute to the life, music, and legacy of Jenni Rivera.

Other winners included Jennifer Lopez, Prince Royce, Maná, Shakira and many more.
