Why They're Hot: The group CNCO is less than a year old — they officially formed last December after winning the reality show La Banda, which aimed to put together a new Latin boy band. Each member hails from a different country — Christopher Velez from Ecuador, Richard Camacho from the Dominican Republic, Joel Pimentel from Mexico, Erick Brian Colon from Cuba, and Zabdiel de Jesus from Puerto Rico — and each was approved by at least two of La Banda's superstar judges: Alejandro Sanz, Laura Pausini and former boy-band icon Ricky Martin. The group's impact was felt quickly: Their official debut single, "Tan Facil," climbed to No. 1 on the Latin Airplay chart, and their Primera Cita album arrived at No. 1 on the Top Latin Albums chart. At this summer's Premios Juventud, the Univision equivalent of the Teen Choice Awards, CNCO earned six nominations, and took home four awards. "It's a beautiful feeling that I wish more people could live," Velez told the Miami Herald. "It’s really wonderful to see a girl crying because she saw you, and it's also really sweet."
