After a year in Pjs, social distancing and virtual zoom interviews, Premios Juventud returned for it’s first post-pandemic summer award show. The star-studded event showcased some of Latin Music’s hottest artist, while highlighting some of the youth who are ‘leading the change in culture’.

In case you missed the show here’s a recap of last night’s Premios Juventud

El ‘young king’ Myke Towers and host Sebastián Yatra performed for the first time on TV their mega-hit “Pareja del Año.” If you’re a fan of both then we would agree that this collab is a hit.

Of course we can’t have an award show without a powerful act. In effort to ‘lead the change in culture’ Premios Juventud lent the stage to support the people of Cuba in their current humanitarian crisis. The pivotal act featured special appearances by superstar Camila Cabello, acclaimed musician and producer Emilio Estefan, and global icon Pitbull. During the segment, Joncien, Lena, Malena Burke, and Yailenys Pérez performed “Libertad,” and Gente de Zona and Yotuel did a unique rendition of their inspiring anthem “Patria y Vida.”

Receiving the honor of the night was none other than reggaeton superstar Daddy Yankee who was honored with the prestigious “Agent of Change” award for his efforts to combat world hunger and his work following the destructive path of Hurricane Maria on the island of Puerto Rico. The king of reggaeton, partnered with Habitat for Humanity to rebuild the homes of those affected by the storm, received the award in Puerto Rico from the hands of one of the families he helped.

Taking home the most premios of the night was ‘la bichota’ KarolG, which is no surprise considering the success her album KG0516 is having. The Colombian popstar nabbed 6 Premios making her the biggest winner of the night. She then surprised us with a rendition of her new hit “200 Copas” with a mariachi band.  We still can’t get over how “‘fluffy’ her dress was.

Other Big winners of the night included Bad Bunny (not present) who followed her with five awards, Grupo Firme with four, Natti Natasha with three, and Becky G and Los Dos Carnales with two each. 

Mexican icon Pepe Aguilar y sus hijos Angela Aguilar and Leonardo Aguilar took the stage to perform their mariachi songs “La Quiero Igualita,” “Ahi Donde Me Ven,” “Traigo Ganas,” and “Viva Mexico.”
