Congrats to Shakira, Jennifer Lopez and the late Jenni Rivera were the top winners at the 2013 Billboard Latin Music Awards.

Shakira nabbed Social Artist of the Year, Latin Pop Songs Solo Artist of the Year and Female Artist of the Year. She faced stiff competition in the Solo Artist of the Year category, facing off against Pitbull, Lopez, Rivera and Enrique Iglesias.

The Voice‘ coach wasn’t on hand to pick up her awards, however — she was at a basketball game with Gerard Pique!

Lopez and Iglesias didn’t go home empty handed, though — the duo won the award for Tour of the Year for their joint jaunt.

The late Rivera was honored with six awards, including the prestigious and coveted Artist of the Year award. The fallen singer’s popularity and sales soared following the tragic news of her untimely death. As a result, Rivera also received Albums Artist of the Year, Latin Pop Albums Artist of the Year Solo, Regional Mexican Album of the Year and Regional Mexican Album of the Year (Solo). Rivera’s family, including her parents Pedro Rivera and Rosa Saavedra, and two oldest daughters, Janney (Chiquis) Marín and Jacqueline Marín, accepted her trophies.

Another winner? Rihanna, who received the Crossover Artist Award.
