“It is a great pleasure to bring the annual Latin Grammy Awards back to Las Vegas to pay tribute to musical excellence,” said Jessica Rodríguez, Executive Director of Marketing and President of Entertainment for Univision.
The list of nominees for the 22nd edition of the Latin Grammy will be announced on September 28 through the digital platforms of Univision and the Latin Recording Academy.
The 2021 Latin Grammy ceremony promises to be a show full of great musical surprises with the most important personalities of the moment.
Univision has not revealed the names of the personalities who will be presenting this year’s edition of the Latin Grammy.

The members of the Latin Recording Academy announced that great artists such as Martinho da Vila, Emmanuel, Sheila E., Pete Escovedo, Fito Paez, Joaquín Sabina, Milly Quezada and Gilberto Santa Rosa will be awarded the Award of Excellence during the 22nd edition of the Latin Grammy.
The Musical Excellence Award is an award given to personalities who have made extraordinary contributions to Latin music over the course of their artistic careers.
“It is a great honor to recognize this remarkable group of legendary, yet very active artists with the Award for Musical Excellence,” said a representative of the Latin Recording Academy in a press release.
Who will be the recipients of the Board of Directors Award?
