CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — Reggaeton star Don Omar is the top winner at the Billboard Latin Music Awards.

The artist on Thursday took home 10 prizes at the annual show honoring Spanish-language songs and performers.

The late Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera won six prizes, including artist of the year. Her parents and two of her children accepted the prize on her behalf. The California-born superstar was killed in a plane accident last year in Mexico.

The show paid homage to Rivera with a tribute that included clips from live performances and her reality television show. Her brother Juan Rivera also sang his sister's song, "No Llega el Olvido."

The three-hour show also featured performances from Marc Anthony, Daddy Yankee and Juan Luis Guerra. It was broadcast live Thursday evening on Telemundo.
