Billboard’s Latin Music Awards aired live on Telemundo Network once again from the Global Spectrum-managed BankUnited Center in Coral Gables, FL on April 26th, 2012.
Hosted by TV personalities Aylin Mujica and Daniel Sarcos, the sold-out show featured top musical acts, including Pitbull, Juanes, Marc Anthony, Akon, Don Omar, Prince Royce and Paulina Rubio. Bringing in more than 5.6 million total viewers, this year’s award show marked Telemundo’s highest rated broadcast in the show’s 14 year history and was the number one ranked show in its time slot for 18-49 year olds in both Miami and New York.
Serving as host to the show for the past two consecutive years and multiple years prior, the BankUnited Center continues to deliver high quality entertainment to the Hispanic community on both a national and international level and holds true to its tagline, “The Best Mid-Size Venue in the World.”

The influential R&B crooners were back at it performing all of their hits, from “Candy Girl” to “Can You Stand the Rain” in addition to the songs that launched their solo careers, “My Prerogative” (Bobby Brown), “My My My” (Johnny Gill), “Sensitivity” (Ralph Tresvant”), and “Poison” (Bell BivDeVoe).
The highly energized crowd at the Coral Gables venue stood and danced in their seats the entire night, making for another successful event at the BUC!
