MIAMI, FL. (Top40 Charts/ Univision Network) - A stellar collage of artists created a picture perfect night for young Hispanics everywhere during Univision's 6th Annual 'Premios Juventud' youth awards show, presented LIVE from the BankUnited Center at the University of Miami at 8 p.m. ET/PT (7 p.m. Central).

In a night of many firsts, superstars Marc Anthony and Ricardo Arjona provided two of the most memorable moments with their performances. Marc Anthony and La Quinta Estacio'n, who performed together for the first time ever, premiered their new single 'Recue'rdame' against the backdrop of a tornado. In another first on the 'Premios Juventud' stage was singer/songwriter Ricardo Arjona singing a medley of his hits 'Minutos,' 'El Problema,' and 'Como Duele.'

The show opened with an exciting number by Paulina Rubio performing her hit single 'Causa y Efecto,' with a group of dancers playing an elaborate life-sized game of chess. Immediately afterwards, the surprise celebrity DJ was revealed to be none other than pop star Pee Wee, mixing it up in an audio booth suspended high above the fan pit. Novela heartthrob Juan Soler, actress/singer Karyme Lozano and pop superstar Anahi', joined him as hosts and kept the crowd going all night.

Featuring the largest number of performances in its history, 'Premios Juventud' was a non-stop evening of outstanding musical numbers and surprises.
