The 2022 Latin Grammy Awards event is about to be here, so mark your calendar, set your alarm, and start the countdown. On Thursday, November 17, the Michelob Ultra Arena at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas will host the largest night in Latin music.
At 8 p.m. ET, the program will be shown live on Univision and also be accessible on HBO MAX.
Excellence in Latin music will be recognized by the Latin Recording Academy. The 23rd Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards candidates include a wide spectrum of musicians who released songs during the eligibility period and were chosen from more than 18,000 entries in 53 categories (June 1, 2021, through May 31, 2022).
All songs up for nominations must be brand-new and include at least 51% of their lyrics in one of the local indigenous languages, Portuguese, Spanish, or both.
“At The Latin Recording Academy, we continually strive to support and encourage Latin music creators, and these nominees epitomize musical excellence and represent the great momentum that our music is currently experiencing,” said Manuel Abud, CEO of The Latin Recording Academy.
With must-see musical performances, red-carpet interviews, and the first glimpse at all the glitz of the nominations and winners leading up to the Latin GRAMMYs, Univision’s “Noche de Estrellas” will launch Latin music’s largest celebration. The 23rd ceremony begins at 8 p.m. ET/PT after the pre-show at 7 p.m. ET/PT.
The hosts of “Noche de Estrellas” this year are Univision personalities Chiqui Delgado, Ral De Molina, and Borja Voces, while beloved Clarissa Molina and well-known Mexican actor, TV host, and personality Adrián Uribe join as hosts for the first time.
