The 2017 Latin Grammy Award nominations will be made public on Sept. 20, the Latin Recording Academy has announced. This year’s Latin Grammys, the 18th edition, will take place on Nov. 16.
As in past years, Univision will carry the three-hour live telecast from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
“The Latin Grammys have become the premier U.S. and international musical showcase for Latin talent, diversity, relevance, and excellence,” Gabriel Abaroa, president/CEO of The Latin Recording Academy, said in a statement. “This year we are planning to bring our audience an even more spectacular evening celebrating the hard work, perseverance and achievements of those in our artistic communities.”
On Nov. 15, Latin music artists and industry members will honor the yet-to-be-announced Latin Recording Academy Person of the Year and recipients of Lifetime Achievement and other special awards.
The 2016 broadcast of the Latin Grammys on the Univision network reached 8.6 million total viewers in the United States, attracting more young adults than CBS, Fox and the CW. Internationally, the telecast, distributed by Haber Entertainment, has reached more than 80 million viewers annually under an exclusive partnership with TNT Latin America, part of Turner Broadcasting System, a division of Time Warner.
The 2017 Latin Grammys will air at 8 p.m. on Nov. 16, following a one-hour pre-show.
