Karol G attends the 31st annual Hispanic Heritage Awards at The Kennedy Center on Sept. 12, 2018 in Washington, DC.

The Latin Recording Academy has revealed the full list of nominees for the upcoming 2018 Latin Grammys, and many of the honored artists quickly took to social media to share their pumped reactions.

J Balvin leads the nods with eight nominations. On his Instagram Story, he expressed his excitement, stating: “We are the most nominated at the Latin Grammys, eight nominations. We’re starting the tour, we have good health, which is the most important. I love you all, thank you.”

Balvin wasn't the only one celebrating. Brazilian sensation Anitta, who is nominated for the first time ever, couldn't contain her joy on Instagram, either. Karol G and Victor Manuelle also followed suit.

Needles to say, Thursday morning (Sept. 20) was a very good day for many artists in the Latin music biz. Check out the priceless reactions from some of the 2018 Latin Grammys nominees below.
