Evoking Panamanian genre pioneer El General, Farruko arrived on stage like a general and paid homage to the roots of reggaetón (also known as reggae en español) with a performance of “Perdóname” Thursday (Oct. 5) at the 2023 Billboard Latin Music Awards.

As a sweet surprise, Panama’s La Factoría and Eddy Lover, who originally recorded “Perdóname” in 2008, also rocked the stage. La Factoría donned a slinky latex red suit with a huge bow as an adornment and long matching boots, while Lover wore a metallic lime green suit.

The three performers mellowed-out “Perdóname,” for a laid back version of the classic song.

Accompanied by a cajon player, guitarist, keyboardist, over a dozen dancers, and even a Vespa motorcycle, the genre trailblazers delivered a beautiful, sultry performance to close the 30th annual ceremony at Watsco Center in Coral Gables, FL.

The 2023 Billboard Latin Music Awards featured additional performances from Bad Bunny, Los Ángeles Azules, Calibre 50, Chiquis, Eladio Carrión, Grupo Frontera, Los Sebastianes, Manuel Turizo, Marc Anthony, Marshmello, Myke Towers, Nicki Nicole, Olga Tañon, Pepe Aguilar, Peso Pluma, Sky Rompiendo, Sofía Reyes, Ximena Sariñana, Yandel and Yng Lvcas.
