Premios de la Radio is the leading Regional Mexican music awards show presented by Estrella Media, the transformative Spanish-language media company, serving a diverse multiplatform Latino audience in the U.S. Like last year, the 2022 event was co-produced in Mexico City by TV Azteca, one of the two largest producers of Spanish-language television content in the world.

The most awarded artist and group of the night were Carin León and Grupo Firme who won three Premios each. León who won three trophies, Artista Masculino, Grupo o Solista Sierreño, and Canción Sierreña. León led the nominees with seven nominations.

The fan-driven awards were determined through online public voting in the U.S. and Mexico.

One of the highlights of the night was the “Tributo a los Grandes de México” honorees: Paquita la Del Barrio and Los Ángeles Azules, who were feted with live musical performances and also performed themselves. Performing in the tribute to Paquita was a star-studded group of leading artists – Ezequiel Peña, Gerardo Ortiz, Luis Alfonso Partida “El Yaki,” Alfredo Olivas, and Santa Fé Klan. Los Ángeles Azules brought the crowd to their feet, performing their hits “Cumbia Del Corazón” and “Listón De Tu Pelo.”

In addition, two special Homenajes were presented during the ceremony.
