Gloria Trevi and Ivy Queen’s “Todos Me Miran” Duet at Premio Lo Nuestro Was Everything

Gloria Trevi was given an honorary Premio Lo Nuestro award last night for her decades in the music industry. The Mexican icon hit the stage for the medley of her hits that included a surprise appearance from Ivy Queen.

Gloria Trevi came through with the hits and Ivy Queen.

After receiving her award, Trevi hit the stage to show the world the spectacular pop star that she is. For the opening, she threw it all the way back to one of her earliest classics, “Pelo Suelto.” The reggaeton version was rounded-out with some fierce hair flips. Trevi followed that up with her other hit “Cinco Minutos.”

In a moment that we didn’t know we needed, Puerto Rican superstar Ivy Queen emerged to sing Trevi’s gay anthem “Todos Me Miran” alongside her. The queen of reggaeton sounded incredible belting the dance track with Trevi. Can they please release this remix to Spotify and Apple Music ASAP?

Trevi brought out the disco balls to sing down the house with “Grande” in a new remix with Ivy. The ladies then regrouped for one of the gayest and more glorious moments of her set. Trevi gave herself a fitting tribute by singing the Spanish version of “Gloria” in a rainbow-colored extravaganza. We’re going to need these iconic queens to collaborate more often.

Trevi and Ivy Queen weren’t the only queens in the house.

Premio Lo Nuestro made sure to highlight the queens of Latin music this year. La Reina del Rock Alejandra Guzmán paid tribute to Armando Manzanero. Mexican superstar Paulina Rubio later won Cumbia Song of the Year thanks to her collaboration “Tú y Yo” with Raymix.

With the COVID-19 pandemic shutting down most live entertainment, this year Pollstar is dedicating its awards to the top-performing tours of the last decade. In the Latin category, heavy-hitters like Romeo Santos, Maná, and Gloria Trevi are up for Latin Touring Artist of the Decade. Strangely, Selena Gomez is nominated for the award as well.

The Pollstar Awards honors the best-selling tours each year.

The 32nd annual Pollstar Awards will be taking place on June 16 in Los Angeles. The awards will be presented in partnership with Live Nation. While the ceremony usually honors artists, venues, and teams that have performed well in the past year, that would’ve been tough to do for 2020 with the pandemic shutdown. Pollstar instead compiled the top-selling tours of the past decade for this year’s awards.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Romeo Santos and Gloria Trevi were on roll with their tours.

The Latin Touring Artist of the Decade category is stacked with the icons that definitely filled seats before the pandemic. Aventura frontman Romeo Santos made history in 2019 when he became the first Latin artist to headline the MetLife Stadium. That year Mexican pop icon Gloria Trevi received an honorary award from Premios De La Radio as the top-selling touring Mexican female artist.

Santos and Trevi face-off with Maná, who sold out back-to-back concerts at Staples Center. Other top-selling acts in the category include Spanish pop star Enrique Iglesias, Puerto Rican icon Ricky Martin, Luis Miguel, Marc Anthony, and Alejandro Fernández.

Selena Gomez is Latina, but her last tour wasn’t a Latin tour.

The outlier in the category is Selena Gomez. There’s a whole pop category that she could’ve been included in. Even though Gomez is Mexican-American, she didn’t perform any Latin music on her Revival Tour. The multi-hyphenate star didn’t go full Latin until the release of her Revelación EP this year.

Jennifer Lopez is also nominated in the category, but she’s always coming through with her own Latin hits and Selena covers. J.Lo in the category is permissible, but Selena Gomez is a hard sell here.

In honor of Mother’s Day this year, the Latin Recording Academy is putting on a concert filled with superstar Latinas. Mexican icon Thalía is set to host the Ellas y Su Música special with women like Alejandra Gúzman, Gloria Estefan, and Anitta scheduled to perform.

The Latin Recording Academy and Univision are teaming up for the special.

The Latin Recording Academy hosts the Latin Grammy Awards every year. Ellas y Su Música will air Sunday, May 9 at 8 p.m. EST on Univision. This will be a two-hour-long program that celebrates women.

“For the first time on television, The Latin Recording Academy and Univision will celebrate the journey of women in music through a television special,” reads a statement for the special. “Legends, icons, and rising artists will gather to celebrate those who paved the way and inspired new generations through unforgettable musical performances and never-before-told personal stories.”

The performers include many Latina legends in music.

The list of performers so far confirmed for Ellas y Su Música is mind-blowing. Along with the aforementioned Estefan, Gúzman, and Anitta, they will be joined by Olga Tañon, Yuri, La India, and Shaila Durcal. Puerto Rican and openly queer star Kany García, ChocQuibTown’s Goyo, Mon Laferte, and Chiquis Rivera are also performing.

There’s also many rising stars slated to perform.

Not only are the stars and icons performing that night, but so are the rising artists. Among that group is Mexican pop star Sofía Reyes, who starred with Thalía in Latin Music Queens, Argentina’s Latin trap queen Cazzu, and Dominican-American singer Leslie Grace.

There are still more performers to be announced. There’s never been so much Latina star power in one show before. Ellas y Su Música will be an all-star special to enjoy with mamá and la abuela en la casa.
