The hottest Latin stars came out on Thursday night to celebrate Telemundo’s “Premios Tu Mundo” (Your World Awards) from the AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami. Actors, singers and other bold-faced names walked the blue carpet (aka, la alfombra azul) set up outside the arena inside a tent.

Hosted by TV personalities Rafael Amaya, Aracely Arambula, Fernanda Castillo, David Chocarro, Carlos Ponce and Maritza Rodriguez, the fan-filled event also featured high energy performances by Cali y el Dandee, El Mola, DJ Juan Magan, Luciana and Luis Enrique.

Daddy Yankee was in winner’s circle earning Favorite Urban Artist; his #DYArmy won Fan Club of the Year. Venezuelan duo Chino & Nacho were also muy popular — winning Favorite Tropical Artist.

Other top winners included Gloria Trevi, Danna Paola, Fernanda Castillo and Gaby Espino, who dazzled in a pink cocktail dress. Espino was the recipient of the coveted I’m Sexy and I Know It award as well as Favorite Host, Specials or Reality for her hosting duties at the Billboard Latin Music Awards.

A highlight of the night was a performance by legendary singer Jose Feliciano who sang “Aleluya.”

Dr. Ana Maria Polo received a special award, “Estrella de Tu Mundo” (Star of Your World), to honor her 15 years in television.

Regional Mexican group Intocable (Untouchable) went home with the “El Poder en Ti” (The Power in You) award, given to artists who use their fame for good.

Notables at the ceremony: actress Dascha Polanco, from “Orange is the New Black,” Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutiérrez, who was infamously (mis)crowned Miss Universe by Steve Harvey last year; and “Turn Me On” singer Kevin Lyttle.
