A wave of Latin artists scored big at the 2020 MTV Europe Music Awards that took place Sunday night (Nov. 8) including Karol G, who nabbed two awards and performed her new single “Bichota.”
The Colombian singer took the title for best collaboration with her Nicki Minaj-assisted “Tusa” and won the best Latin award, taking the crown from the male-dominated list including Anuel AA, Bad Bunny, J Balvin, Maluma, and Ozuna.
“I feel super blessed to have all of you,” she expressed on Instagram. “I’m super fortunate. Thank you, thank you, thank you for so much love.”
Pabllo Vittar, who nabbed the best Brazilian act for a second consecutive year, had “no words” for all the support from her fans. “I’m very happy to be able to represent my country,” she said. “I want to thank everyone who voted.” Vittar was nominated with colleagues such as Anitta, Djonga, Emicida, and Ludmilla.
Other Latin winners at the 2020 MTV EMAs included Bad Bunny, Danna Paola, Lali, and Sebastian Yatra. Maluma, who was a three-time nominee, performed his singles “Djadja” and “Hawái” at the awards ceremony.
