2018 Billboard Latin Music Awards: Complete Winners List

Some of the biggest names in music turned out for this year’s star-studded Billboard Latin Music Awards at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, where the night’s group of most-nominated artists featured an unprecedented number of non-Latin performers.

Colombian superstars Shakira and J Balvin led the pack going in with 12 nominations each, while Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, Maluma and Ozuma each earned 10 nominations. Meanwhile, Justin Bieber, Beyonce and French DJ Willy William all earned numerous nods as well.

Bieber’s eight nominations are a result of his collaboration with Yankee and Fonsi on the re-mix of their massive hit “Despacito,” while Beyonce’s involvement in the bilingual re-mix of Balvin and William’s “Me Gente” led to her seven nominations.

The true impact of the popularity of “Despacito” could really be seen in this year’s Songwriter of the Year category, where all six nominees were credited co-writers of the his single.

However, when it came down to it, all that really matters is who takes home the hardware. Check out the list below to see who won big at the 2018 Billboard Latin Music Awards.
