Billboard Latin Music Conference and Awards 2011 this year was well one simple word Fantabulous!!!! I happen to be a very lucky girl and I had a backstage look at this years festivities. It was a week full of Fun, choas, and Parties. I can’t forget that in true Miami fashion there were a lot of sexy people and lots of Celebs.
The week kicked off with an official Billboard Pre-Conference Poolside Party Artist Showcase and let me tell you it was a great way to start of the week great music, poolside, great people and did I mention free drinks!
Day one of the conference was full of informative panels and speakers. The best part of the day was by far the super handsome DON OMAR!! He came in great spirits and having a blast backstage in the speaker ready room and he brought the entire ORFANATO camp with him which included DJ Frankie Needles and I even got a sneak peak of Dons’ up and coming reality show set to air on MTV! Let me tell you it looks AWESOME!! After that came the Marketing awards, congrats to all the winners. I can’t forget to mention the poolside new artist showcase.
Day two was a huge day! Words can’t describe all the chaos that was going on but by far it was a star-studded day. Everyone was there Luis Fonsi, Mana, Gloria Trevi, Camila, Daddy Yankee, and not to mention MAX & LENNY from Aventura!!! The best part of the entire day was my EXCLUSIVE interview with Max & Lenny right after they came off stage and I got some great stuff including who they are planning on working with so make sure you look out for my interview! That my friends was ONLY the conference didn’t include The Orfanato showcase with more free drinks and The BMI showcase and the annual BILLBOARD BASH with performances by the sexy Dylan y Lenny, 24 Horas, and El Cata plus many more.
The big day was the actual award show, which was CRAZY!!! It was a full house of beautiful people and amazing winners two big winners Mr. Miami himself Enrique Iglesias and Prince Royce CONGRATS!!!
