Sebastián Yatra may have been the most nominated artist of the night with 10 nods but it was Grupo Firme who was the top winner at Premio Lo Nuestro. The banda/norteño ensemble took home six awards (of their nine nominations) including regional Mexican album of the year (Enfiestados Y Amanecidos), regional Mexican song of the year (“Ya Supérame”) and the perfect mix of the year (“Cada Quien” with Maluma).

Yatra and Karol G weren’t far behind. Each took home four awards. Yatra took male artist of the year, pop, and album of the year, pop. Meanwhile, Karol beat artists such as Bad Bunny, Camilo and Christian Nodal in the artist of the year category. Bad Bunny won three awards, including album of the year for Un Verano Sin Ti. Bizarrap, Shakira and Daddy Yankee also won three each.

It’s worth noting that most of the awards were announced online. Only a handful of the 39 categories were televised. Marc Anthony was the first one to take the stage to accept album of the year, tropical, for Pa’lla Voy. In his speech, he thanked his fellow nominees for inspiring him and ended with: “All of us in this room are dreamers and we dedicated our lives to this. There’s a lot still more to come, mi gente.”

The 35th annual Premio Lo Nuestro, which took place Thursday (Feb. 23) in Miami, mainly centered on performances, with more than 20 musical numbers taking place throughout the three-hour show. The ceremony kicked off with Yatra who performed his new single, “Una Noche Sin Pensar.” A new generation of urban artists, such as Tiago PZK, Elena Rose and Alvaro Diaz also took the stage as each member represented a distinct scene from across the Spanish-speaking continent.
