Billboard Latin Music Awards 2012: The Winners and Losers

Check out Crossfade's list of highlights and lowlights from the Billboard Latin Music Awards 2012.

Three hours. Three long hours of fake tears, fake tits, and fake singing. It's the nonsense that we sit through so that you don't have to.

Admit it, you didn't watch last night's Billboard Latin Music Awards on Telemundo, that's why you're reading this recap. Instead, you spent the evening watching ESPN's coverage of the NFL Draft, cursing the Dolphins for making shit picks, and wishing you paid more attention to hockey.

Fear not, fair-weather Spanish-language music fans, we rounded up the big winners and losers for you! Check out the complete list after the cut.
