Several big names have agreed to host the 23rd edition of the Latin Grammy Awards, including the massively successful Latin singer Anitta, the Puerto Rican hit-maker Luis Fonsi, the Italian singer-songwriter Laura Pausini, as well as Mexican superstar Thalia.
The telecast is expected to occur on Thursday, November 17, from 8 p.m. ET to midnight ET in the Michelob Ultra Arena at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
Four Co-Hosts Will present the Event
In September 2000, five co-hosts of the inaugural Latin Grammy Awards, Gloria Estefan, Jennifer Lopez, Andy Garcia, Jimmy Smits, and Antonio Banderas, made this the first time four or more co-hosts were on hand since the inaugural broadcast.
It has been reported that Anitta has been nominated for the most Latin Grammy nominations to date and that her viral hit single “Evolver” is being considered for an outstanding reggaeton performance as well as a record of the year, as the song also topped the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at NUMBER 22.
There are more than five Latin Grammys that Pausini has won throughout his career, while Fonsi won one Grammy and four Latin Grammys for his hit song “Despacito,” which he wrote with Daddy Yankee.
With six Latin Grammy nominations, Thalia has established herself as one of the world’s most sought-after actresses and singers, and her song “I Want You,” featuring Fat Joe, topped the Hot 100 in 2003, peaking at No. 22.
As Person Of The Year, The Latin Recording Academy Honors Marco Antonio Solas
Before the Latin Grammy Awards are presented, Mexican icon Marco Antonio Solis will be presented with the Latin Recording Academy’s Person of the Year Award. It will be on Wednesday, November 16, and there will be a gala in his honor the day before.
In a statement issued by the Latin Recording Academy, Manuel Abud, the CEO, said in a press release that Marco Antonio Solis achieved a degree of fame and acclaim that makes him one of the most recognizable figures in Latin music today.
Ana Brenda Contreras, Carlos Rivera, and Roselyn Sanchez hosted last year’s ceremony on behalf of the Ana Brenda Contreras Foundation. For their piano ballad ‘Talvez,’ Tom and Caetano Veloso took home the 2021 record of the year award. This year, the award was named in honor of Alejandro Sanz’s romantic love ballad ‘Contigo.’
In addition to the Latin Grammy telecast, the Latin Grammy Premiere Ceremony, where most of the award categories will be announced, will take place before the telecast.
