The Latin Billboard Awards returned to Las Vegas for their 2019 edition this week, and as expected, música urbana dominated the ceremony once again. Ozuna took home 11 wins – a record for most awards by a single artist. It’s not surprising the “Baila Baila Baila” singer took home so many wins, considering he was nominated for a record-setting 23 awards in 15 categories.

While the broadcast included some of the more predictable award show antics, there were a couple of highlight performances – and strong looks served by the end of the evening.

Peep our recap below:


Bad Bunny dyed his hair bright green and wore neon acrylics.

We don’t need to remind you of Bad Bunny’s love of wild manicures, but in case you forgot, El Conejo Malo brought out the full neon-green acrylic stiletto set and fresh fade with clean line work to match.


Bad Bunny sang an operatic a cappella version of “Estamos Bien.”

When a presenter asked him to do a version of “Estamos Bien” in a cappella, Bad Bunny decided he’d go all in. The performance drew comparisons to Milagros German’s show during the Premios Soberano – which Benito was in the audience for.


Bad Bunny also pulled up on a jet ski.

True to form, El Conejo Malo pulled up on a jet ski to perform X100PRE’s “200 MPH” – a call back to Daddy Yankee’s epic flying Lambo moment from Premios Lo Nuestro.


Juan Luis Guerra was given a Lifetime Achievement Award.

The bachata legend received a much-deserved Lifetime Achievement Award and a tribute from Juanes, Fonseca, Kany García, and Pedro Capó, who performed “Burbujas de Amor,” “Ojalá Que Llueva Café,” and “La Traviesa.”


Aventura had a surprise reunion.

In the biggest surprise of the night, Romeo Santos brought out the Aventura crew for a surprise performance of Utopia’s “Inmortal.” You can bet we were left in a pool of our own tears.
