The Spanish-speaking communities across the globe have exercised their viewing power and supported Latin artists to the point that some of them have crossed over into the mainstream. Not only are the artists deserving of representation but so is their audience and supporters as we've seen Latinx-based celebration ceremonies spike in viewership and attendance over the past couple of years. And now, with the recent rollout of nominations and the first-round of performers announced for the 2019 Billboard Latin Music Awards today, we're in for one of the greatest Billboard Latin Music Awards productions of all-time.
Earlier today, Telemundo revealed their first wave of performers at the 29th annual celebration of Latin music including newcomer Columbian singer and songwriter, Karol G (Tickets), Latino boy band CNCO as well as this year's Billboard Latin Music Awards nomination leader, Ozuna, and Puerto Rican crossover Reggaeton/ Latin Trap entertainer Bad Bunny (Tickets). Take a look at the full list of first wave performers at the 2019 Billboard Latin Music Awards below:
