On June 13, The Latin Recording Academy and Univision Network announced that the 18th Annual Latin Grammy Awards will be held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The three-hour incredible all-star event will air Thursday, Nov. 16, 2017, live on Univision from 8–11 p.m. (7 p.m. Central) and will include a one-hour pre-show.
Sept. 20, 2017 will bring about the announcement of this year's nominees. The night before the big show, The Latin Recording Academy will hold special presentations honoring The Latin Recording Academy Person of the Year and other Special Awards recipients.
Last year's show was hosted by Roselyn Sánchez and Sebastián Rulli and featured all kinds of spectacular performances. One of the highlights of the evening included Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony reuniting for that showstopping duet which resulted in a single that ended up hitting No. 1 on the U.S. iTunes Latin Charts.
Last year also yielded some big winners such as Carlos Vives and Shakira, who won for Record of the Year, and Manuel Medrano, who took home the award for Best New Artist.
Year after year, the Latin Grammys showcase the best in Latin talent. The celebration of diversity and excellence is one of the biggest events in music and its collaboration with Univision has made this night one of the most-watched on television. Since 2005, when the Latin Grammy Awards debuted on Univision Network, it remains to be one of Univision’s top rated and most engaged music broadcasts.
There will certainly be a lot of excitement leading up to the biggest night in Latin Music and you're not going to want to miss a beat. For additional information, be sure to check out Latingrammy.com.
