From unforgettable, high-energy performances, to jaw-dropping, stunning, red carpet attires, and of course, the many remarkable musicians being honored at the event – it all happened at the renowned and prestigious 2017 Latin American Music Awards, which took place on October 26, 2017 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California. The Latin AMAs was definitely the trending topic on every social media platform highlighting what was one of the greatest award shows from this year. So many of our favorite musicians and celebrities joined together under one roof to honor the iconic Latin artists we all know and love in an award show that was voted by the fans. With the power in the hands of the fans, music sensations including CNCO, Prince Royce and Enrique Iglesias were the top winners of the night with CNCO and Prince Royce garnering four awards and Enrique Iglesias winning three.
The Latin American Music Awards was jam-packed with an endless amount of excitement. It all started off with the special “La Alfombra de Latin AMAs” which showcased all of the glamorous and spectacular outfits that the celebrities wore as they made their way onto the purple carpet of the marvelous event. There was a pandemonium on the Hollywood Boulevard as some of the biggest stars in the music industry made their way to the Latin AMAs. Fifth Harmony, Becky G, Diego Boneta, Prince Royce, Jesse & Joy, Abraham Mateo, and many others looked phenomenal as they had their highly-anticipated arrival at the event.
Then, it was time for the party to begin! In addition to all of the excellent performances and wonderful awards being distributed, one crucial thing that makes an award show successful are the hosts, and the Latin AMAs had two of the greatest hosts an award show could have. The Latin American Music Awards was hosted by the one and only, singing sensation Becky G and the prolific actor and musician, Diego Boneta. The night honored many terrific musicians for their extraordinary, music projects that we all love listening to on constant repeat.
The stupendous and consummate musician, Pitbull was honored with a special award at the Latin AMAs – the Latin AMA Dick Clark Achievement Award for not only his record-breaking achievements in the entertainment industry but for also using his platform to inspire others, help those in need and make a big difference in the lives of many. Pitbull was joined by Fifth Harmony for a mesmerizing performance of a medley of “Por Favor,” “Boom Boom,” and “Don’t Stop The Party.”
