Estaba de show in Miami

Víctor ManuelleLast night in Miami everyone was "de show" with "Lo Premio Nuestra a la Musica Latina". It was a spectacular opportunity for the elite celebrities within the latin music community to strut their stuff. Except for the Latin GRAMMYS, their problem isn't any other event that brings together this much Latin talent under one roof, and no better place to do it then the American Airlines Arena in Miami.

Perhaps no one had a bigger night than Maná, who swept the rock category and taking all three awards. Other stars that fun that night include RBD who won two awards for Group of the Year and Album of the year, our own (and very pregnant) Olga Tañon won two awards for female Artist of the Year and for Tropical Merengue Artist of the Year, and finally Wísin y Yandel who took the awards for Artist of the Year and Album of the Year.

As with any special event like this emotions, expectations, and confusion run high and this event was not without its own drama. First it seems Daddy Yankee and his wife were left behind when their limousine failed to appear to pick them up. Apparently they waited patiently (hmm, yes wouldn't you agree that patience is one of most Puerto Ricans vitures?) and found their way to the show because Daddy Yankee was on stage to give Don Omar his award for Video of the Year, which really did not like receiving his award from the hands of Daddy Yankee. Víctor Manuelle almost had to buy a ticket to get in to the event, it wasn't until his manager came to his rescue did Manuelle actually join the other celebrities on the red carpet. And finally, in showing us that they are really just like us, Fonseca became so nervous before entering the stage that he asked permission to use the bathroom to make an "emergency liquid break."

The Univision web site has some great pictures from the event, including the one I included above. In addition, they have a section where you can vote on your favorite celebrities in the following categories: Sexy, Elegante, Extravagante, and Galan.
