Last year, Natti Natasha, Pitbull, Daddy Yankee, Maluma, Anuel AA, and many other Latinx stars took the stage at Premios Juventud 2019, celebrated in Miami's Watsco Center. As usual, the Univision awards show included a live audience and performances filled with elaborate choreography, set design, and explosive special effects. But in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, how will the show go on?

PJ 202o will feature a virtual audience and "an innovative integration of the latest state-of-the-art, augmented, and virtual reality technologies for award presentations, intros, and musical performances," Billboard reports. The 17th edition of the awards show — focused on captivating the Latinx teen and millennial audience — will honor the hottest stars in Latinx music, pop culture, digital media, fashion, TV, and social media.
