Things To Do

Maluma joins a mystery guest in the lineup at this year’s Premios Juventud. Who is it?

The Premios are coming. The Premios are coming!

You know what we’re talking about: Univision’s always lively Premios Juventud.

This year, organizers say the annual awards ceremony celebrating the best in today’s Latin talent will break new ground, paying homage to all things young and cool. The lineup includes top performers from various genres including Maluma, Sofia Reyes, Jason Derulo, CNCO,  Zion y Lennox, and Gente de Zona, along with classic acts like KC and The Sunshine Band (yes).

All smiles all the time! I bring my own sunshine.
