Kane Brown’s Admiration for Carin Leon: After premiering their new single “The One” at the 2024 Premio Lo Nuestro, Carin León and Kane Brown headed to the media center, where they showed off their bromance. “He’s [like] me but in Latin form,” Brown said of León. “I am in his presence, and he’s the king for me right now. I’m honored to be part of his success. I’ve always been the outcast in country music and I feel that my song with Carin will open more doors. 

RBD Leaves Premios: After being in a great mood, talking to the press at the magenta carpet, RBD members Christopher Von Uckermann and Christian Chavez left the venue disappointed. In his Instagram stories, Uckermann explained that they were supposed to have seats at a table on the floor but were given the wrong tickets, which provoked them to leave the awards show and go to dinner instead.

Eslabon Armado’s Heartfelt Speech: In the media center, Eslabon Armado, who nabbed the Premio Lo Nuestro award for Mexican song of the year, dedicated their win to their mom who was watching the show from home. “I dedicate this to her because she’s an important part of us,” lead vocalist Pedro Tovar told the press. “People talk about Eslabon but don’t know what’s behind it. My parents are Mexican immigrants who battled for 10, 15 years to give us a future.”
