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

"Atrevete Amarme," had me on first listen. A tale as old as time - a burning desire for the one that alludes you - it has all the right harmonic and melodic necessities to really tug at those heartstrings. I am also totally down with the fireside, tortured song-circle. For the lovelorn: 

"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.
