The 15th edition of the Latin Grammy Awards is scheduled to broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Nov. 20 and will air on the Univision Network.
The awards show has broadcast from Las Vegas for 7 years, but this is the first time it will be produced out of the MGM Grand. Previously, it was held at the Mandalay Bay Events Center. Nominees will be announced Sept. 24 during a press conference.
"For the past 14 years we have showcased some of the greatest talent in Latin music, and now, entering our 15th anniversary celebration, we are delighted to commemorate this new milestone with more amazing musical segments," said Gabriel Abaroa Jr., President/CEO of The Latin Recording Academy. "We also are pleased to once again work with the outstanding teams at the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, and our partners at MGM Resorts and Univision, who continue to collaborate with us to provide a memorable experience for not only attending guests, sponsors and members, but for music fans across the globe."
The awards show debuted in 2000 and was first broadcast by CBS and struggled to find an audience. In 2005, when the show moved to Univision, the program grew significantly in the ratings each year making the Latin Grammys one of the most watched television shows.
"Las Vegas is excited to welcome back the Latin Grammy Awards for the seventh year," said Cathy Tull, senior vice president of marketing for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. "As the entertainment capital of the world, there's no better place to hold such a star-studded event honoring the best performers in the Latin music industry."
