A constellation of stars came together on Thursday for the 4th annual Premios Juventud at the University Of Miami’s BankUnited Center.
The biggest winner of the night was the mexican musical group that took home five statues. Daddy Yankee and Wisín & Yandel followed RBD with three awards each.
Divas Shakira and Jennifer López –who did not attend the show – tied with two awards each. The “Hips Don’t Lie” singer took home awards in the “How Well Do You Move?” and “My Idol Is” categories, and the multi-faceted JLo won in the “I Want to Dress Like Her” and “The Girl Who Keeps Me Up” fields.
Besides being chosen as the public’s favorite Mexican Regional singer, Alejandro Fernández was recognized for his 15-year career.
Univisión’s Angélica Vale and her co-star in the telenovela La fea más bella, Jaime Camil, were the hosts for the night. This tidbit, kept secret until the start of the show, was revealed through a dramatic James Bond-like opening in which Mexican singer Belinda, the show’s third host, acted as an undercover agent.
Cruz Martínez and his band Los Súper Reyes opened the show with a bang. Daddy Yankee came on stage aboard a spaceship that was suspended from the ceiling, but once on terra firma, he headed a dynamic dance number with a squadron of robots to the sounds of “Impacto” and “Ella me lleva.”
Wisín & Yandel did their thing in an explosive act with another reggaeton heavyweight, Don Omar. Their choreography had a sci-fi feeling with smog clouds hovering over an intricate laboratory and freezer room set.
The bachata/pop ensemble Aventura also set off sparks. Vocalist Romeo descended to the stage on a massive, metallic heart to sing the song “Mi Corazoncito.” Spaniard David Bisbal ended up soaked after singing “Torre de Babel” and sliding underneath a waterfall that sprouted on stage, prompting the audience to burst into laughter.
RBD, the show’s big winners, closed the night with their song “Bésame sin miedo” which was met by a cheerful roar from the audience. All the winners are on the following page
