The 2023 Premios Juventud celebrated its 20th anniversary from the Coliseo José Miguel Agrelot on Thursday (July 20) in San Juan, Puerto Rico, with the theme of “Exprésate a tu Manera” (Express Yourself Authentically).
Shakira was the night’s biggest winner, taking home eight awards, in addition to the coveted Agent of Change special award.
While her emotional speeches were televised, along with memorable performances such as Hoobastank singing a salsa version of “The Reason,” and reggaeton veterans such as Zion y Lennox, R.K.M. y Ken-Y, and more, joining forces for a throwback performance, Billboard was at the red carpet and media center, catching all the action you didn’t see on TV.
Check out the list below:
1. At the red carpet, Fuerza Regida, who performed on the show, told Billboard that they are big fans of Jhayco and, in fact, have a collaboration in the works but can’t share further details. The Puerto Rican rapper is no new face to the Música Mexicana realm. Cortez teamed up with Ivan Cornejo for “Esta Dañada (Remix)” in 2012 and this year, with Eslabon Armado in “Tomando Tequila.”
