Anthony went into the night with five nominations, winning Album of the Year for 3.0, Song of the Year, Tropical Artist of the Year and the Excellence Award. The Excellence Award denotes a Latin musician who’s achieved incredible success. Throughout his career, Anthony has sold more than 12 million albums.

Earlier in the week, Anthony opened up about his life outside the recording studio, raising two young children with his ex-wife, Jennifer Lopez. Anthony, who divorced from Lopez in 2012, had nothing but good things to say about the American Idol judge – and her boyfriend of two years, Casper Smart.

"We're actually really, really good friends – from the very beginning,” Anthony said of Casper on Wendy Williams, adding, “When you love someone and you care for someone … Jennifer and I – and I don't say it lightly – we're great friends.”

"You know, anybody that means anything to her means something to me. That's keeping it simple and Casper's a great guy,” Anthony added. “He's been great to my children and I have nothing but respect for him. Absolutely nothing but respect.”

Anthony's last relationship was with Topshop heiress Chloe Green. They split earlier this month after about a year of dating.
