MTV Tr3s Upfront with Daddy Yankee

daddy-yankee-mtv-upfrontThe TR3S Upfront 2013 event at Webster Hall in New York City was a fascinating night of circus thrills, exclusive show footage, and performance by Daddy Yankee.

The first act of the evening consisted of the members, of Circo Hermanos Vazquez, showing off their various skill sets or specific acts. Three which stood out was the lady who was able to dance on stilts. A contortionist performed extreme human yoga in front of stunned guests. Not to be outdone we had a gypsy with a snake wrapped loosely around her neck for people to touch or allow being touched. On stage we had fire eating performers, a woman with multiple hula hoops which closed her set by taking twenty of them and wrapping herself with it slinky style. A buff fireman wowed the audience by doing a handstand on ten chairs strategically placed upwards. While performing the act his suspender snapped and stunned the crowd momentarily.

The second act was a video preview of the upcoming shows on TR3S, which included Familia de Circo which takes a behind the scenes look at a forty-year family circus led by five Mexican brothers who are not always on the same page. Divas Del Azucar is a reality series about Bakers for the Stars.

In Nina’s Mal 2 we get a young adult novella that drew five million viewers in 2010. It follows the story of high society girls who challenge the mold set by their parents and their charm school. We also get a look at the character Adolfo Altamirano, living in two worlds with two families, in Fortuna.

EN TOUR uses a ‘making of’ format to take viewers into the reality of touring. It takes a more intimate look at what audiences take for granted. Wisin y Yandel were shown as examples in an upcoming episode. The Unplugged series will showcase Ricardo Arjona next as he does a stripped acoustic performance.

The finale brought us to the performance set by guest superstar, Daddy Yankee, decked out in a black cap with “Yankee” in bold lettering in front with white shirt and sweater vest which showed Daddy to be fitter than in recent years. He also was more involved with his background dancers in short dance combinations, also something he does more. Daddy did seven songs in his performance set which included “Rompe”, “Modelo” and “Lovumba”. The performance was power packed and precise throughout the set and no one was cheated. It was a vibrant close to a spectacular evening.

The TR3S event was quite a success from the décor of the room to the open bar and snacks that were available throughout the evening. A merging of three different styles of entertainment made for a pulsating event at Webster Hall.
