One of the most highly anticipated music awards shows of the season, the Latin Grammys puts the spotlight center stage on the past year's most famous music artists -- in such categories as Pop, Salsa, and Tango including top awards for Song of the Year and Album of the Year.
This year, the landmark 20th edition of the Latin Grammy awards will be televised on Univision beginning at 8PM ET on Thursday, November 14, 2019 live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
2019 Latin Grammy nominees were announced on Tuesday, September 24, 2019 and included top nominees Rosalia and Alejandro Sanz, followed by Mexican singer Ximena Sariñana and Columbian singer Fonseca.
It's interesting to note that while Rosalia scored five nominations, Alejandro Sanz actually takes the lead for most nominations with eight — but three of which are shared with Camila Cabello.
Flamenco pop star Rosalia is a leading nominee at the 2019 Latin Grammys.
Already announced is the recipient of this year's Latin Recording Academy Person Of The Year, which will be going to Colombian singer Juanes, a 23-time Latin Grammy winner. The Latin Recording Academy has also announced that Eva Ayllón, Joan Baez, José Cid, Lupita D’Alessio, Hugo Fattoruso, Pimpinela, Omara Portuondo and José Luis Rodríguez “El Puma” will be the recipients of the Lifetime Achievement Award while Mario Kaminsky will be honored with the Trustees Award this year.
