The Latin Grammy Awards are taking place for the first time internationally, live from the Conference and Exhibition Centre (FIBES) in Sevilla, Spain on Thursday, Nov. 16.
This year’s nominations are led by Mexican-American hitmaker Edgar Barrera with 13 nods, including songwriter of the year, producer of the year and song of the year. The latter of the three as the co-writer of both “NASA” by Camilo & Alejandro Sanz and “un X100to” by Grupo Frontera with Bad Bunny. Barrera is followed by Camilo, Karol G, Shakira and Keityn, with seven nominations each; Bizarrap with six nods; and receiving five nominations each, Pablo Alborán, Bad Bunny, Maria Becerra, Feid, Dave Cutch and Natalia Lafourcade.
This year, several new categories will debut at the awards ceremony, including best songwriter of the year (as part of the newly created songwriting field), best singer-songwriter song, and best Portuguese-language urban performance.
But one of the coveted awards of the night is best new artist — one of the “big four,” alongside song of the year, record of the year, and album of the year — which recognizes 10 promising newcomers.
As tradition holds, the best new artist award is given to an artist who releases the first recording that establishes his or her “public identity” during the eligibility year. This year’s group of up-and-coming acts represents many different countries and styles, including three Colombian artists, more than any other place of origin. Meet all the nominees below.
The 2023 Latin Grammys will air at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday, Nov. 16 on Univision, UniMás and Galavisión in the U.S. and at 10:30 p.m. CET on Radiotelevisión Española (RTVE) in Spain.
