The telecast is scheduled to take place in the Michelob Ultra Arena at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on Thursday, November 17, from 8 p.m. ET to 12 a.m. ET.
Four Co-Hosts Will present the Event
Gloria Estefan, Jennifer Lopez, Andy Garcia, Jimmy Smits, and Antonio Banderas were the five co-hosts of the first Latin Grammy Awards in September 2000, marking the first time since the awards show’s broadcast that there were four or more co-hosts present.
According to rumors, Anitta has received the most Latin Grammy nominations to date. Her viral hit song “Evolver” is also up for record of the year and best reggaeton performance awards. The song also topped the Billboard Hot 100 all-genre list, peaking at NUMBER 22.
While Fonsi earned one Grammy and four Latin Grammys for his smash song “Despacito,” which he co-wrote with Daddy Yankee, Pausini has won more than five Latin Grammys in his career.
Thalia has established herself as one of the most sought-after actresses and singers in the world with six Latin Grammy nominations, and her song “I Want You,” which features Fat Joe, peaked at No. 22 on the Hot 100 in 2003.
