    We are big Latin music fans in my home.  My husband loves playing Latin music for our boys and showing them all of his favorite dances including Salsa, Bachata, and Merengue.  I normally leave the dancing lessons to him because, while I greatly enjoy listening to music as a family, I’ve been cursed with two left feet.

    This year, we are following the Latin Billboard Awards very closely because some of our favorite artists have been nominated in a variety of categories.  Latin music’s hottest event will be broadcasting live from Miami on Thursday, April 25th and it promises to be a star-studded evening featuring top musical nominees and stars.

    My husband and I have been debating back and forth about who we think will be taking home the top honors in some of the Latin music categories.  He has his favorites and, of course, I have mine as well.  It’s all in good fun and we will celebrate the winners together at the conclusion of the awards ceremony.

    In the meantime, however, I thought I might share with you some of my top picks for this year’s winners.  I’m sure once you see my choices, you will agree that I have the right idea about who will win it this year!

Tough Cookie Mommy’s Top Picks For The Latin Billboard Awards:

Artist of the Year:  Don Omar

New Artist of the Year:  3BallMTY

  1. I’m all about the romance. Didn’t see my pick here- hope to see him at the winner’s podium. Either way, A BAILAR SE HA DICHO!!! BB2u

  2. I love that your husband is coaching your boys with dancing lessons, how fun! I can’t say I’m qualified to choose who should win, but I do like Don Omar. Great selection!

  3. I have two left feet also, so not dancing for me! I’m not qualified to choose either, but agree with Barb, I like Don Omar.

  4. kSquaredGlamour says

    i will have to listen to some of these songs as i have never heard of them before. Thanks for sharing!

  5. My kids would love to listen to this. I put music on all the time ( and any and all music) to get them moving around. They would enjoy this!

  6. Thanks for sharing! I need to download some new songs for my runs!

  7. I wasnt aware of any of these artists. Listened to the Don Omar music.

  8. We love to dance in our house.. loved reading that your husband is teaching your fun. I need to load some of these onto my iPod for the drive to work. Thanks for sharing

  9. paulakiger says

    Oh my gosh out of your list I see some new possibilities for my running playlist!!! Gotta admit I am not familiar with these artists but I would consider giving Don Omar and “Dutty Love” a listen — I live a super clean life (try to anyway) but anything goes (almost) on my Running Playlist. I like the songs fast, and edgy!

  10. So I am not going to lie I do love Prince Royce. A little old school, but I do love Los Temerarios. I like las romanticas. I can’t wait to watch.

  11. jamie braun says

    i had never heard of any of the artists nominated for the Latin Billboard Awards. I gave a few from your list a listen and I can honestly say that im really digging Don Omar

  12. I am really liking Jesse & Joy, so I’d pick them to get more nominations.

  13. janetfaye says

    I am not familiar with Latin music artists, except for Shakira. She would be my pick.

  14. I am not a big Latin music fan, so I don’t know artists really. I hope Don Omar wins just for you. Thank you for hosting this giveaway!

  15. As I mentioned on my post, my fav is Chayanne, his song “Me Enamore de ti” and his dimples.

  16. coupontammy says

    My daughter is obsessed with Don Omar. I don’t even know where she heard it the first time. She plays it over and over and over! I would like to see Dutty Love win. I will personally scream if I have to hear that song one more time. 🙂

  17. Yo creo que este ano ganara en la categoria de Latin Pop Album of the Year mi cantante favorito Alejandro Sanz con su disco “La Musica No Se Toca”.

  18. Sarah Hall says

    I would say that Don Omar would be one of my choices. Probably Prince Royce may be another choice to consider.

  19. I don’t really listen to Latin music, but I do like Don Omar.

  20. I want to see win la arrolladora banda el limon, in all its nominations, especially with the song, ‘llamada de mi ex’ thanks for the opportunity. good luck for all. 🙂 i am on raflecopter: nany de paz

  21. I like Enrique Iglesias, but I don’t any of his recent songs, so I am not sure which one should be nominated.

  22. entered Soft Scrub Advanced Surface giveaway

  23. Sara Rowe says

    I know they already aired, but I’m glad Jenni Rivera won (posthumously) for both Regional Mexican Album of the Year and Artist of the Year. She was beloved by her friends and family! I’m glad they also paid tribute to her with clips from her reality show.

  24. I would love to see Don Omar receive an award for Dutty Love. song is so good!

  25. Jenni Rivera or Don Omar would be my choices, I don’t get to listen to much music these days my husband generally picks what we listen to in the car.

  26. Ah, you have great taste! Good songs, all around.

  27. I have to agree with you: “Dutty Love” wins it in my book.

    Thanks for a fun giveaway!
