The 23rd Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards nominees were selected from more than 18,000 entries across 53 categories, and reflect an expansive range of artists who released recordings during the eligibility period (June 1, 2021 through May 31, 2022). All songs that are considered for nominations must be new songs, and contain a minimum percentage of lyric content (51%) in Spanish, Portuguese or any of the indigenous dialects of our region.
The final round of voting to determine Latin GRAMMY winners will begin on September 30th. The Latin Academy will host the 23rd Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards on Thursday, November 17th from the Michelob ULTRA Arena at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. The telecast will air live on Univision beginning at 8 pm ET/PT. Preceding the telecast is the Latin GRAMMY Premiere ceremony, a long-established afternoon full of unforgettable performances and heartfelt acceptance speeches, where the winners in most categories will be announced.
To help maintain a healthy environment and lower the risk of COVID-19, all Latin Recording Academy events will have appropriate safety protocols in place. At the present time, in accordance with current federal, state and county guidelines, the Latin Recording Academy anticipates there will be no requirement of COVID-19 vaccination or mask mandates in effect for attendees. These requirements will continue to be evaluated and are subject to change.
