From J-LO to Enrique Igelsias: here's the top things you missed at the Latin Billboard Awards

There was so much heat in Miami last night when some of Latin's hottest names where in town for the 2015 Latin Billboard Awards.  The show was televised live on Telemundo from the Bank United Center in Coral Gables.

From Jennifer Lopez to Enrique Iglesias, here's a list of some of the show's best moments.

1. Jennifer Lopez's tribute to Selena Quintanilla was so spot on, even her family was blown away. According to Billboard.com, Selena's sister, Suzette Quintanilla-Arriaga was impressed by Lopez's looks. "I loved that she incorporated three of Selena’s main looks -- the bustier, the high-waisted pant, and the ruffles," she told the magazine.  You may recall that Lopez protrayed Selena in the 1997 biopic. The Tejano singer's life was cut short when she was shot and killed by her manager in 1995, but after hearing Lopez's version of Selena's greatest hits, including "Como la Flor," and Bidi Bidi Bom Bom," it was as if she was still among the living.

2. Enrique Iglesias took home nine awards for his album, "Sex and Love," and its top-charting hit, "Bailando."  Of course, the Spanish charmer thanked some of his favorite people. "I want to thanks all my fans ... for all the support they have given me these 19 years, and to the artists who have collaborated with me." "Bailando" was at the numero uno "Billboard's Hot Latin Songs," for 41 weeks.

3. The winner for most awards of the evening, belonged to Bachata singer, Romeo Santos. The former frontman of the group, Aventura, won ten awards. After winning his first award, Santos thanked the top-charters he worked with on his album, "Formula, Vol. 2," naming Carlos Santana, Nicki Minaj and Drake. Of course, he couldn't forget to thank his biggest support in the music industry, Marc Anthony. "Very important. I had the great privilege of recording with a man I admire so much. More than an artist that I admire, he is like a brother to me. Thank you, Marc," he said. For that, Anthony blew him a beso from the seats. Not surpisingly, it was Anthony, who received the award for "Best Tour."

4. It wasn't all about Latin musica. R&b crooner, Ne-Yo and EDM's Afrojack joined Luis Fonsi onstage in what proved to be a milestone for Telemundo.  Word is it was the first time an EDM song was featured on a Hispanic television network.
