It was a good night for Bad Bunny at the American Music Awards (AMA) Sunday night (November 21). The Puerto Rican rapper won two awards – Favorite Male Latin Artist and Favorite Latin Album for El Último Tour Del Mundo.

The AMAs also saw El Conejo Malo take the stage to perform the song “Lo Siento BB:/” with a digitized version of Julieta Venegas. For the performance, Bad Bunny wore an all-white outfit and a mask that covered the top half of his face and was fitted with a red, robotic eye.

Bad Bunny wasn’t the only one pulling double duty at the AMAs. Along with serving as host for the evening, rapper Cardi B had to take a break from her hosting responsibilities to accept her own award for Favorite Hip-Hop Song for “Up,” which hit No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart earlier this year.

Singer Becky G won the AMA for Favorite Female Latin Artist. This year, she collaborated with María Becerra on the song “Wow Wow” and with superstar Christina Aguilera on the track “Pa Mis Muchachas” alongside singers Nicki Nicole and Nathy Peluso.

Kali Uchis scored an AMA win for Favorite Latin Song for “telepatía” from her 2020 album Sin Miedo (del Amor y Otros Demonios).

Rounding out the Latine winners for the evening was Banda MS de Sergio Lizárraga who took home the AMA for Favorite Latin Duo or Group. The Mexican band, who is originally from Sinaloa, released their last album in 2020, El Trabajo Es la Suerte.
