“Music is such an important unifying force for us, and I am delighted to return as host of this notable event once again to recognize and celebrate our most popular Latin artists. It will be an exciting and entertaining evening full of incredible performances, and I look forward to seeing you at the ‘Latin AMAs!,’” said Bracamontes.
“During the last six years, the ‘Latin AMAs’ has become a global platform for artists that truly resonate with their audience, as the winners are selected based solely on fans’ votes,” said Ronald Day, President, Entertainment and Content for Telemundo. “We are excited to bring our viewers an impressive, star-studded musical event that will also extend across platforms with extensive and exclusive additional content.
