Hoy! Premio lo Nuestro

Tonight are the Premio lo Nuestro a la Musica Latina awards in Miami. The award show will be televised live at 8:00 pm on Univision, from the American Airlines Arena in Miami.

Upon his exit everyone in the auditorium shouted: "The King has left the building, .... to go to the dentist". It seems Don Omar is having gold, rubies and diamonds installed on his teeth spelling out "This space for rent". At least that's what I got out of the quote.
