Prince Royce has a handful of reasons to celebrate…
The 24-year-old Dominican American singer and La Voz Kids coach was the big winner at the 10th annual Premios Juventud, taking home five awards.
It’s the second year in a row that the Royce has led the pack of winners at the awards show. Last year, he won eight awards, including Voz del momento.
This time around, Royce won in five of the 10 categories where he was nominated, including Red Hot Artist, Catchiest Tune, and My Favorite Video.
Meanwhile, the late Jenni Rivera, who died in a plane crash in December, posthumously earned four awards, including My Regional Mexican Artist and My Ringtone.
Meanwhile Bruno Mars and Mexican duo Jesse & Joy each took home two statuettes from the gala held at Miami’s BankUnited Center.
The show opened on a high note as two-time winner Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull sang a medley of their massive hits including new single “Live It Up” in a performance that ended with the two singers diving into an onstage swimming pool.
Other winners include Sebastián Rulli, Blanca Soto, Shakira and Vicente Fernandez.
Launched 10 years ago as a fan show that aimed at a younger audience, Premios Juventud presents awards in 27 categories in music, film soap operas, sports and pop culture. Winners are decided by popular vote over the Internet.
