Latin Stars Converge in Miami for Premios Juventud

Universal Music
Paulina Rubio
Attending an award show is a unique and often unforgettable experience. All that pomp. All those celebs. Enough sparkly, sequined and skimpy evening gowns and ice to sink the Titanic all over again. And fans of Latin music won't want to miss this year's Premios Juventud, one of about 30 award shows Univision puts on annually.

This particular incarnation, which takes place this coming Thursday, is geared toward youth. It features some of the hottest of the year in genres spanning from regional Mexican to reggaeton, and pop to tropical. In the lineup are Mexican cumbia super group Los Super Reyes, Spanish pop princess Paulina Rubio, PeeWee, formerly of Kumbia All Stars, Anahi of RBD fame, romantic reggaetonero Makano, phenom of the power ballad Luis Fonsi, La Quinta Estacion (whose lead singer Natalia bears some of the best pipes in Latin music), popular regional act Alacranes Musical, German Montero, Da'Zoo and Tito El Bambino, just to name a few.

Tickets for the show at the Bank United Center in UM are still available, so snatch them up and go check out your favorite artists tomorrow.

Premios Juventud takes place at the Bank United Center at UM at 8pm, with Red Carpet starting at 6pm. Tickets run $55 and $75.
