Prince Royce

Prince Royce walked out a royal winner during the 9th Annual Premios Juventud Awards at the BankUnited Center in Miami.

The bachata singer was the biggest winner of the night by racking up a total of eight awards, including “Favorite Tropical Artist of the Year.” Besides winning big, the “Cosas Pequeñas” star also premiered his new song “Close to You” while floating on top of a roaring crowd of fans. Definitely went with the superhero theme they had going on!

Bachata owned the night with veteran Romeo Santos receiving a total of 11 nominations and offering a blazing medley performance of his hits like “La Diabla.” The former Aventura lead ended up winning in two categories: “The Perfect Collaboration” for his hit single featuring Usher, “Promise,” and “Most Played Album” for his first solo venture, Fórmula Vol 1.

Of course, our “Hips Don’t Lie” star Shakira won in the “Best Moves” category, while Pitbull also owned the night by claiming the trophy as “The Best Urban Artist of The Year.” The Cuban rapper also gave one of the best performances of the evening with an explosive live rendition of his latest track, “Back in Time” from the Men in Black 3 soundtrack.

Other winners included: Sofia Vergara for “Favorite Actress,” Mana for “Favorite Rock Group” and Camila for “Best Pop Band.”
