Topping the list of finalists competing for 18 awards is Tito “El Bambino,” who is ready to take over the stage with his vibrant reggaeton and latest hits from his successful album “El Patron.”
In addition, Joan Sebastian, one of the most recognized Regional Mexican music singer-songwriters up for two awards, including Songwriter of the Year, will dazzle the audiences with the intensity of his performance. Cuban rapper, Pitbull, a finalist for three Billboard Latin Music Awards this year, is set to fire-up the stage with his urban rhythm, while Spanish pop superstar, David Bisbal, promises an exciting performance featuring a debut from his latest album “Sin Mirar Atras.”
