It was Jennifer Lopez first time at Univision’s 10 year celebration of Premios Juventud held Thursday night at Miami, Fla. and received more than she expected.
Jennifer Lopez from the Bronx was the headliner opening performance along with Pitbull to perform a medley of four of their hits recorded together – “On the Floor”, “Dance Again”, “Live It Up”, and “Don’t Stop the Party”. She appeared on stage in a birdcage singing to a choreography filled with acrobats, laser and smoke to a beach bash environment carrying out this years award show theme. After their opening performance, Jennifer bumped Pitbull into a pool and then dived in herself to join him in the water. A great way to cool off after an electrifying and hot performance.
Lopez was later honored with the Premio Icono Award (World Icon Award) for her success in the music, fashion, business and acting industry. In an emotional award acceptance from singer Yandel’s hands, Jennifer was very grateful and trying to speak in between bursts of applause and cheers stated:
I feel very fortunate to be here tonight. What I have always wanted to do with my life is to create, sing, dance, act and entertain and be a good person.
I love what I do. I’m an artist. And I know that being a role model to my community means to be responsible for my actions. I too am human and I make mistakes. But I promise you that when I fall, I get up again. When I make a mistake, I learn the lesson and I am ready to confront the next challenge. Because to me that is making your own life doing a better job while you continue to be a better person
I accept this award with a lot of humility and I am enormously grateful.
It is the second time the Premio Icono Mundial (World Icon Award) has been awarded which recognizes outstanding artists of Hispanic descent achieving global fame.
Before the night was over, an unexpected surprise as Jennifer was also awarded a Premios Juventud statue in the movie category – She Steals the Show.
