The 2017 Billboard Latin Music Awards was one to remember, with memorable star-studded moments including a performance from Jennifer Lopez, who walked away with the Star Award.

The awards also featured big winners like singer Nicky Jam, artist Shakira, and a video from Sofia Vergara, Lin-Manuel Miranda and J Balvin, congratulating Lopez on her award.

Lopez was one of the highlights of the award show Thursday night, as she put on her second performance at the event – with the first one coming in 2015, according to E News.

“It makes me very excited to share this special night with artists that I admire,” Lopez said during her acceptance speech for her Star Award, according to Billboard.

“My family in music and in my life. To come back to my roots has a significance that goes beyond words,” she added. “Moments like these are proof of hard work and we are lucky if life blesses us in this way. I love you so much. I feel blessed to be part of this creative world and to be able to represent our Latin community. I feel at home. I am humbled to be here in your presence and accept this award.”

Jam, who performed with “Fast and Furious” actor Vin Diesel during the show, dominated the categories, taking home six awards after being nominated for nine, according to the United Press International.

Singer and songwriter Enrique Iglesias was another big winner on Thursday, earning four awards, including Latin Pop Songs Artist of the Year.
