Telemundo and Billboard have officially unveiled the host for the upcoming 2020 Billboard Latin Music Awards, set to take place on Wednesday, Oct. 21.

Venezuelan actress Gaby Espino, known for her starring role in Jugar con Fuego (Playing with Fire), will be the official host of the night. She will be joined by Nicaraguan presenter and host of Latinx Now!, Nastassja Bolivar, who will offer behind-the-scenes coverage.

Additionally, a wave of artists, actors and Telemundo personalities have been announced as awards presenters, including Aymee Nuviola, Christian Chávez, Frederik Oldenburg, Ivy Queen, Jacky Bracamontes, Jeimy Osorio, Luis Ernesto Franco, Natalia Jiménez, Osvaldo Benavides, Pedro Capó, Samadhi Zendejas, Silvia Navarro, and Sofía Castro.

The 2020 BLMAs, led by 14-time finalists Bad Bunny and Ozuna, is the only awards show to honor the most popular albums, songs and performers in Latin music. The awards are determined by the actual sales, streaming, radio airplay and social data that informs Billboard's weekly charts during a one-year period from the rankings dated Feb. 2, 2019, through this year's Jan. 25 charts.

The event coincides with the 30th anniversary of Billboard Latin Music Week, a three-day virtual experience dedicated to Latin music, culture and entertainment. The Billboard Latin Music Awards 2020 will broadcast live from the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Fla., on Oct. 21 via Telemundo.
