J Balvin

Colombian superstar J Balvin will be performing at tonight's 2017 Billboard Latin Music Awards in a star-studded lineup that includes Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, Reik, Wisin, Yandel, Ozuna, Blue Man Group, Luis Figueroa, Pedro Capo, Christian Pagan, and Bad Bunny. Balvin recently took home the award for Latin Album of the Year for Energia at the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards, and tonight, he'll likely leave with a few more wins under his belt. In 2015, the performer made headlines after pulling out of a performance at the Miss USA Contest upon hearing Donald Trump's comments about Mexicans and Latins. In an exclusive interview with Billboard, he said, "It was going to be my first performance on national [mainstream] television... But we’re talking about our roots, our culture, our values... This isn’t about being punitive, but about showing leadership through social responsibility." Since then, the singer has continued to make headlines, but not for his political statements-- he's done so for his vast array of music that has music lovers around the world dancing.
