Last night, Ne-Yo (in a stylish suit from Moods of Norway) was among the stylish stars who attended the 2015 Billboard Latin Music Awards at Bank Uniter Center in Miami, FL. Later in the show, he hit the stage to perform with Luis Fonsi and Afrojack for what was touted as the first time EDM was played on Telemundo.
Jennifer Lopez turned heads in a Zuhair Murad Spring 2014 Couture White Lace Jumpsuit and Cape during her entrance.
The audience was brought to tears during Jennifer’s amazing tribute to Selena.
On stage, she was joined by the band Los Dinos for a tribute to the slain music icon, singing “Amor Prohibido,” “I Could Fall In Love,” and “No Me Queda Mas.”
Jennifer rose to national prominence in 1997 after she played in Selena in the classic bio pic. She told NBC NEWS, “The impact that it had on my life, on my career. It was a great thing for her to be my mentor. And it was a great thing to have her teach me so much about how to navigate this business, but also how to navigate through life.”
