Premios Juventud

I like to think of myself as music-savvy; I know plenty of different musicians and listen to virtually all types of music.

I, however, found myself a stranger to practically every artist yesterday at Univision's Premios Juventud.

From Pitbull to Ricky Martin and Antonio Banderas (basically the only performers I knew), the evening was filled with loud music and enthusiastic fans.

Originally, I attended the show to see one band, Il Volo. Needless to say, I'm a huge fan (hence why I went to a four hour concert for a five minute performance), and they did not disappoint.

While Pitbull and Il Volo gave fantastic performances, other artists, like Romeo Santos, left me wondering "Do people actually listen to this?"

But, like any red-carpet, star-studded award ceremony, the venue was beautiful. Giant screens and a floating DJ booth gave the awards a very high tech, futuristic feeling. And, like any event, the musical numbers were highly energetic and fun, not even leaving me, a stranger to most of the performers, dissappointed.
