Stepping out for a night of music,  Ashley Tisdale was all smiles at the Los Premios MTV 2009 Latin America Awards in Universal City on Thursday (October 15).

Held at the Gibson Amphitheatre, the “Aliens in the Attic” actress looked cute in a little black dress as she posed for pictures on the red carpet before heading inside for the night’s festivities.

Not on-hand as a spectator, Tizzie is among the evening’s performers – as she’ll be playing her new tune “Crank It Up”.

The 24-year-old also happens to be among the nominees, as she’s up against Lady GaGa, Taylor Swift, McFly and The Veronicas for Favorite International Artist.
