The Latin Recording Academy Announces 21st Annual Latin Grammy Awards Nominees

The Latin Recording Academy Announces 21st Annual Latin Grammy Awards Nominees
New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The Latin Recording Academy has announced the nominees for the 21st Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards, the preeminent international honor and the only peer-selected award celebrating excellence in Latin music. The Latin GRAMMYs are voted on by The Latin Academy's international membership body of music creators, who represent all genres and creative disciplines, including recording artists, songwriters, producers, mixers and engineers.

This year's Album Of The Year category is composed of a diverse group of artists, featuring some of the most accomplished and renowned trendsetters and worldwide ambassadors of Latin music across genres, including: Bad Bunny (YHLQMDLG), Camilo (Por Primera Vez), Kany García (Mesa Para Dos), J Balvin (Colores), J Balvin & Bad Bunny (Oasis), Jesse & Joy Aire (Versión Día), Natalia Lafourcade (Un Canto Por México, Vol. 1), Ricky Martin (Pausa), Fito Páez (La Conquista del Espacio) and Carlos Vives (Cumbiana).

Artists with multiple nominations include Anuel AA, Bad Bunny, J Balvin, Camilo, Karol G, Kany García, Josh Gudwin, Colin Leonard, Jon Leone, Richi López, Ozuna, Alejandro "Sky" Ramírez, Residente, Julio Reyes Copello, Rosalía, Marco Masis "Tainy" and Carlos Vives.

The 21st Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards nominees were selected from more than 18,000 entries across 53 categories, reflecting an expansive range of artists who released recordings during the eligibility period (June 1, 2019 through May 31, 2020). The Latin Recording Academy's online entry process allowed members and record labels to submit product digitally during the COVID-19 pandemic and paved the way for the first-ever - and very successful - virtual screening and nominating process that enabled the participation of the large majority of voting members, regardless of their location.

"Over the last year, we continued engaging in discussions with our members to improve the awards process and actively encouraged diverse Latin music creators to join and participate. Today, we are proud to unveil the nominees for the 21st Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards — a group that reflects the constant evolution of Latin music," said Gabriel Abaroa Jr., President/CEO of The Latin Recording Academy. "Our Academy is stronger than ever as members are engaged, better informed, and committed to elevating and honoring musical excellence across all genres of Latin music. This year's class of nominees is the result of a resilient and genuine awards process."

New categories, voted on and approved earlier this year, including Best Pop/Rock Song, Best Reggaeton Performance and Best Rap/Hip-Hop Song, received an overwhelming number of entries. Furthermore, the Best Merengue/Bachata Album, Best Flamenco Album and Best Classical Contemporary Composition categories are returning after meeting the minimum submission requirements.

The final round of voting to determine Latin GRAMMY® winners will begin Oct. 8. Winners will be revealed by The Latin Recording Academy on Nov. 19 at the 21st Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards' Premiere and telecast ceremonies.

The 21st Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards telecast will air live on Univision at 8 p.m. ET/PT (7 p.m. CT). With the theme "Music Makes Us Human," the reimagined telecast will be anchored from Miami with uplifting performances from multiple cities around the world. Additional international broadcasting partners will be announced at a later date.

Preceding the telecast is the Latin GRAMMY Premiere® ceremony where the majority of the 21st Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards categories will be awarded. This long-established afternoon full of unforgettable performances and heartfelt acceptance speeches will be a virtual, high-quality production featuring remote performances and the ability for all nominees to participate.
