Juanes took on a big job this year at ACL; he was the biggest Latin artist to perform, and he lived up to the hype.

Juanes, a Colombia native, knows how to pump up a crowd. The audience for Juanes was filled with flags from different countries such as Mexico, Venezuela and Chile. Juanes called on all the flags he could see, saying it was great to see everyone out there that night.

Juanes did a whole lot of jumping up and down, making sure every side of the stage got an equal amount of attention and calling out to the crowd to participate. He was dynamic, fun and multi-talented, while shredding it on the guitar and singing some of his most famous songs including “Nada Valgo Sin Tu Amor,” “A Dios Le Pido” and “Me Enamora.”

His entire set was in Spanish except for his penultimate song: Juanes surprised the crowd with his mash-up of Bob Marley and The Wailers’ “Could You Be Loved” and Julio Gutierrez’s “Inolvidable.”

One of the best parts of ACL is that since the artists’ sets are typically shorter, they waste no time and often play their most popular songs. Juanes played his best hits from over the years, and ended with his crazy popular decade-old “La Camisa Negra,” which means “The Black Shirt.” You better believe he wore a black shirt for the occasion.

If you want to dance around and enjoy something a little different at ACL, Juanes is a must-see. He’s incredibly talented, fun and he knows how to get some hip-swaying out of any girl in the audience. There’s no doubt he’s been doing this for years, but you can tell he’s not at all tired of it yet.

Catch Juanes this Saturday at the Austin Ventures stage at 7:30 p.m.
