2021 Latin Grammy Awards and Latin Grammy Premiere: who's performing?
Held in Las Vegas on Thursday, the Latin Grammys will see 53 awards handed out at an event where a wealth of prominent artists are set to perform.
The 22nd edition of the annual Latin Grammys, described by the event’s organisers as the “preeminent international honor and the only peer-selected award celebrating excellence in Latin music”, takes place in Las Vegas on Thursday 18 November, with a host of major artists scheduled to perform at the gala.
Latin Grammy Premiere followed by Latin Grammy Awards
Held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas, it will be split into two parts: the Latin Grammy Premiere (4pm ET/1pm PT), where 45 of the 53 awards up for grabs will be handed out, and the Latin Grammy Awards (8pm ET/5pm PT).
The event “promises to be an exceptional celebration of musical excellence paired with inspirational storytelling”, says the Latin Recording Academy, which hosts the Latin Grammys.
You’ll find a full list of the 2021 award nominees on the official Latin Grammys website.
