Behind the scenes of the Latin Music Awards

Seattle's newest and most buzzed about awards show just wrapped. Hosted by Univision Seattle, the second annual Latin Music Awards brought the glitz, glamour and some of the genre's biggest stars to the Emerald City... and Refined was there!

Nominees and special guests dressed to impress as they arrived in style to Seattle's Pacific Science Center. Before the awards even began, the pre-party was the party of all parties, outside under the arches. Under the glow of the Space Needle, the show kicked off with everyone grooving to the sounds of salsa.

Seattle's Latin music culture runs deep, and there's no shortage of excitement to show it off.

"We are so proud to be part of this and try to show you how is the talent for Latinos here in the Pacific Northwest," said Paula Lamas, Univision Seattle.
