Latin Grammys 2020: Everything you need to know
The 21st annual Latin Grammy Awards are set to take place Thursday at 8 p.m. ET on Univision and TNT. Nicknamed “the Biggest Night in Latin Music,” the show will honor artists hailing primarily from Latin America, Spain, Portugal, and the U.S. The show will be anchored in Miami but will feature performances from cities across the globe. There will be no red carpet or live audience this year as a COVID-19 safety precaution. Similar to the Grammys, the Latin Grammys are voted on by the Latin Recording Academy, and top categories include album, song, and record of the year, as well as a best new artist.
Here’s everything you need to know about who’s hosting, presenting, and performing this year. The Latin Recording Academy unveiled information on the upcoming Latin Grammys today (Aug. 18), announcing that its 21st annual ceremony returns in November with a “music makes us human” theme, Billboard has learned. Anchored from Miami, Fla., the reimagined telecast will highlight musical excellence and the power of music in times of despair. The event will also showcase diverse stories of hope, community, sense of purpose, and celebration.
There will be four hosts this year
Singers Victor Manuelle, Carlos Rivera, Ana Brenda Contreras, and actress Yalitza Aparicio will share hosting responsibilities this year. In a tribute to salsa icon Héctor Lavoe, Manuelle will perform in the night’s opening musical number alongside Ivy Queen, Rauw Alejandro, Ricardo Montaner, and Jesús Navarro. Can you imagine? It’s a great honor for me,” Manuelle told Billboard. “The opening will allow us to relive Héctor Lavoe’s music, the music that is in our blood, that makes us so proud and is part of our musical history and culture.”
Rivera will join Natalia Jiménez to celebrate Spanish singer Julio Iglesias is one of the tributes to Latin music icons. Mexican actor/ranchera singer Pedro Infante, Dominican star Juan Luis Guerra and Brazilian singer Roberto Carlos, a.k.a. the King, will be honored with special performances. At last year’s Latin Grammy Awards, popular reggaeton and Latin trap musicians such as J Balvin, Bad Bunny, and Ozuna were dismissed in the show’s top categories. This year, they dominate.
Balvin scored a whopping 13 nominations, including nominations for album of the year and two for record of the year. Bad Bunny and Ozuna have nine and eight nominations, respectively. Balvin has a chance to win his first album of the year prize — a category with 10 contenders — thanks to his fifth solo album, “Colores,” and “Oasis,” his collaborative project with Bad Bunny. Other nominees include Bad Bunny’s sophomore release, “YHLQMDLG,” as well as albums from Ricky Martin, Carlos Vives, Jesse & Joy, Kany García, Natalia Lafourcade, Camilo and Fito Paez.

For a record of the year, which also has 10 nominees, contenders include Karol G and Nicki Minaj’s global hit “Tusa” and “China” by Anuel AA, Daddy Yankee, Karol G, Ozuna, Balvin, and Marco Masis. Other nominees include Balvin’s “Rojo” and Bad Bunny’s “Vete.” This year, the Latin Grammys added the best reggaeton performance and best rap/hip-hop song categories. Nominees in the 53 categories were selected from more than 18,000 entries. Songs and albums released between June 1, 2019, through May 31, 2020, were eligible for nomination.
Pitbull, Ricky Martin, and J Balvin will perform
Pitbull, a.k.a Mr. Worldwide, will lead a special performance designed to honor frontline workers. Nurses, firefighters, and essential workers will join the performance as part of his live band. Performances will be held in cities across the world. Alejandro Fernández, Christian Nodal, and Calibre 50 will perform from Guadalajara, Mexico. Argentinians Fito Páez and Nathy Peluso will be in their capital, Buenos Aires. José Luis Perales will perform from Madrid; Bad Bunny will sing from San Juan,
Puerto Rico and Brazilian star Anitta will be in Rio de Janeiro. J Balvin, Ricky Martin, Marc Anthony, Carla Morrison, Camilo, Anuel AA, Pedro Capó, Julio Reyes Copello, Alex Cuba, Kany García, Guayana, Los Tigres del Norte, Debi Nova, Raquel Sofía and Sebastián Yatra will also perform. The Latin Grammy Awards have established themselves over two decades as a flashy, hip-pumping, over-the-top Las Vegas extravaganza. Under pandemic conditions, the 21st annual show, which will be broadcast Thursday night on Univision, will be far different. Still, many of the top nominees are familiar past winners, among them the Spanish songwriter Alejandro Sanz, the Colombian songwriters Juanes and J Balvin, the Puerto Rican rapper Residente, the Argentine songwriter Fito Páez and the Puerto Rican singer Bad Bunny, who has the most nominations this year. They will all be performing, without live audiences, on this year’s broadcast.
Latin Grammy Awards on Air ‘Reimagined Telecast’ in 2020
As the United States continues to combat the Covid-19 pandemic, many of the country’s live events are being put on hold indefinitely — or, in the case of this year’s Latin Grammy Awards, conducted both live and virtually. On Tuesday the Latin Recording Academy announced that the 21st Annual Latin Grammys will air via Univision on Thursday, November 19th at 8 p.m. ET/PT (7 p.m. CT). The broadcast will be preceded by an hour-long pre-show titled Noche de Estrellas, which kicks off at 7 p.m. ET/PT. Under the theme “Music Makes Us Human,” the telecast will be anchored in Miami — featuring a combination of local and virtually streamed performances from artists around the world.
“This year’s show is a result of great music, carefully curated by almost 4,000 members, skilled staff, and everyone’s commitment to the Latin Grammy Awards’ process,” said Gabriel Abaroa Jr., President, and CEO of the Latin Recording Academy. “The evening will honor musical excellence and the power of music — an art form that allows us to show solidarity, compassion, and hope, transcending language, cultural barriers, and the current global challenges. We are proud to honor the work of artists who have continued to bring us excellence through their craft and joy in times of despair.”
Preceding the telecast, the Latin Grammy Premiere ceremony will be held in Miami, where the majority of the awards will be issued. Given the challenges imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Latin Recording Academy, Univision and their respective production teams will adhere strictly to safety guidelines and protocols. Should conditions in Miami improve this November, the Latin Recording Academy will consider hosting a live audience telecast composed primarily of nominees, presenters, and performers.
