Colombian superstar Manuel Turizo and DJ Marshmello brought a blast of EDM merengue to the 2023 Billboard Latin Music Awards stage on Thursday (Oct. 5) at the Wastco Center.

Performing their collaborative hit “El Merengue,” and accompanied by a group of dancers, the two artists got everyone in the audience dancing. Turizo interacted with some of them during the performance.

Turizo, wearing a shiny suit and dark glasses, Marshmello, the famous masked DJ at the side of the stage, created a mix that highlighted the EDM sound of the track and got the party going in the crowd. The performance ended with the lights dimmed, the dancers holding lamps in their hands, and a shower of confetti.

Manuel Turizo and Marshmello’s “El Merengue” spent 13 weeks at the top of the Tropical Airplay chart and also reached the pinnacle of Latin Airplay. The collaboration gave Christopher Comstock, better known as Marshmello, his first No. 1 on the Latin charts.

Meanwhile, the Colombian star participated in the Billboard Latin Music Week 2023 “Rising Star Q&A” panel on Wednesday (Oct. 4), where he reflected on how he built his career little by little. “At the beginning you have no idea about anything,” Turizo recalled.

The 2023 Billboard Latin Music Awards featured additional performances from Los Ángeles Azules, Calibre 50, Chiquis, Eddy Lover, Eladio Carrión, Farruko, Grupo Frontera, La Factoría, 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.
