Live+same-day ratings for the 2017 Latin American Music Awards ceremony are roughly on par with those posted by last year’s show.

According to NBC Universal, the live show drew an average of 2.32 million viewers for its Telemundo-Universo simulcast. 1.183 million of those viewers were in the adults 18-49 demographic (roughly a 0.9 rating).

Last year’s show drew a slightly stronger 2.36 million viewership average across Telemundo and Universo. Its adults 18-49 audience, however, was a lesser 1.162 million.

The 2017 and 2016 editions both outdrew the inaugural 2015 installment (2.08 million viewers, 997,000 in adults 18-49). It is worth noting, however, that the 2015 edition aired exclusively on Telemundo (there was no Universo simulcast).

Becky G and Diego Boneta hosted this year’s show, which featured performances by Pitbull & Fifth Harmony, Camila Cabello, Prince Royce and more.
