The 2023 Billboard Music Awards were graced by many talented artists. One of these talented artists was Karol G who took it upon herself to “wow” everyone with a sexy performance on a massive water-filled stage. The Bichota, dressed in white linen pants and a bikini top, kicked off her number with the track “QLONA,” which has a feature by Peso Pluma, delivering a perfectly executed choreographic display.
Surprising fans, she also introduced an unreleased collaboration, “Labios Mordidos,” from Kali Uchis’ forthcoming album, hinting at their second musical collaboration after “Me Tengo Que Ir.” Joined by her dancers, Karol transitioned to her dembow anthem “Ojos Ferrari.” Those watching the performance live – and those of us who experienced the pre-recorded version – have collectively been blown away by her stage presence. No one can deny that it’s gotten better.
Truly, the night belonged to Karol G as she claimed victory, securing two Billboard Music Awards: Top Latin Female Artist and Top Latin Touring Artist. During her acceptance speech, she expressed heartfelt gratitude to her devoted fans. In her speech, Karol G reminded her fans of how much love she has for them and how much they mean to her.
“These awards mean the connection is there between all of you and me. I think you’re more than fans; you’re part of the team and the family. … I want to thank all the people that were part of the tour. It was one of the most extraordinary things that happened to me this year. In addition to the album I released, that was very special, very intimate, you know the reasons why. I’m very happy, very grateful. … I give you half of all this because nothing would’ve been possible without you. I always say awards are special because they’re an extra validation to what we do, but like I said before, to have your unconditional love, with or without music, with or without a tour, that will always be the best present ever and that’s what I hope will never fail or go away. I love you and thank you for being with me today and always.”

Aside from that, she expressed profound thanks to her tour team. She knows how pivotal they were in her tour and fans. She provided another nugget during the Billboard Music Awards. She hinted at an upcoming European leg of her “Mañana Será Bonito Tour.” This would be her first-time touring in Europe if she decided to embark on that journey.
The 2023 Billboard Music Awards Presented by Marriott Bonvoy, without a doubt, gave Karol G the opportunity to further shine.
