The fans had all the power, and their wise choices were celebrated at Telemundo’s third annual Premios Tu Mundo awards, held Thursday night at AmericanAirlines Arena in downtown Miami.

The event — in which fans choose their favorite actors, singers and TV moments — kicked off with a blue carpet performance by Joseguillermo Cortines and the band Bachaco, the winner of Telemundo’s Buscando Mi Ritmo. Yandel, along with his brother General Gadiel and Farruko with DJ Ravi Drums, performed the hit Plakito to kick off the show. Also appearing onstage: Colombian superstar Juanes; Los Tucanes de Tijuana; merengue royalty Olga Tañon and Elvis Crespo; Alexis & Fido; and iconic rock band La Ley, whose members reunited on the stage.

Actors Rafael Amaya and Gaby Espino, one of the show’s hosts (with Aaron Diaz), took home the Favorite Lead Actor awards. Carlos Ponce and Ximena Duque were named best villains, and Santa Diabla was awarded Novela of the Year and Best Bad Luck Moment. Best Supporting Actors were Daniela Navarro and Gabriel Coronel, with Espino and Ponce winning for The Perfect Couple, Duque winning I’m Sexy and I Know It and Coronel winning What a Hunk!.

Legendary Actress and Actor award went to Gilda Haddock and Manuel Landeta, and Kimberly Dos Ramos won the Best Young Talent award.

On the music side, Gerardo Ortiz won Favorite Norteño Artist and Kevin Ortiz won Favorite Banda; while Favorite Pop Artist went to — who else? — Enrique Iglesias, who also won Party-Starting Song for his summer hit Bailando. Prince Royce was Favorite Tropical Artist and won for Song of the Year with Darte Un Beso, while Daddy Yankee grabbed Favorite Urban Artist honors and Il Volo won for Best Duo or Group.
