Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

It was a night for blending genres and talents.

Mana gave the first duet of the show, performing with New York bachata singer Prince Royce “Lluvia al Corazon” and “El Verdadero Amor Perdona” as the image of a beating heart adorned with thorns graced the stage. De Vita and Guzman also shared a performance, with De Vita playing the piano and Guzman pouring out her lyrics to their “Tan Solo Tu.”

The collaborations continued with Puerto Rican duo Wisin and Yandel, who were joined by Jamaican-American singer Sean Kingston. They spitted out three hits, “Estoy Enamorado,” “Fire Burning” and “Fever” as a half dozen women dressed in black and white twirled across the stage.

Kingston said backstage that he didn’t understand what was being said at the show, but called himself a “huge fan of reggeaton,” or Spanish hip hop.

“I’ve dated a few Latin ladies so I understand a little bit, poquito,” he said, adding that he likes Calle 13.
