A still from Flaco Jiménez and Max Baca's "Margarita, Margarita" video, off of Legends & Legacies
The 35th annual Tejano Music Awards take place this weekend at the Tobin Center. In honor of three-and-a-half decades of San Antonio hosting the show, which draws 90,000 people to its festivities each year, we have gathered some of the best (and worst) videos from this year's nominees.
Song of the Year
Up for "Song of the Year" are two ballads that both appeal to those that want what they just can't have. One is a little bit country and the other (looks) a little bit rock 'n' roll. As for the better song - you be the judge.
"Atrevete Amarme" by Elida Reyna y Avante

"Te Llevare" by Siggno
Props to "Te Llevare" for bearing a striking resemblance to Poison's "Every Rose Has its Thorn" video. Further proving the point that "Metal Dudes" hurt, too.
