MIAMI – October 19, 2017 – Telemundo announced the full set of performers and presenters that have confirmed their participation at the upcoming third annual “Latin American Music Awards” (Latin AMAs). Puerto Rican songwriter, producer and reggaeton singer Farruko, Latin music sensation Ozuna, and Puerto Rican singer and songwriter Christian Daniel will join the previously announced line-up of music stars scheduled to perform at the coveted awards, including: Abraham Mateo, Alejandra Guzman, Angeles, Bacilos, Bad Bunny, Banda Sinaloense MS de Sergio Lizarraga, Becky G, Camila Cabello, Chayanne, Chiquis Rivera, Christian Nodal, Fifth Harmony, Gente de Zona, Gloria Trevi, Jesse & Joy, Manuel Medrano, Natalia Jimenez, Pablo Alboran, Pitbull, Prince Royce, and Wisin. From the prestigious Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, CA, the awards ceremony festivities will begin with the glamorous red carpet pre-show special “La Alfombra de Latin AMAs” at 8pm/7c, followed by the “Latin American Music Awards” at 9pm/8c, hosted this year by Becky G and Diego Boneta. The “Latin AMAs” will also broadcast live in 24 countries through Telemundo International.

Having conquered all variations of urban Latin music, Farruko has also produced and ventured into collaboration on pop, bachata, mambo and vallenato. His recently released album “TrapXFicante” pushes the boundaries in the new genre of Latin trap. Catapulting onto the music industry with smashing success, Ozuna's recently released first album "Odisea" debuted at #1 on the Billboard Latin Albums Chart. He also achieved a feat that no artist has ever reached in history: placing 11 songs simultaneously on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs Chart surpassing the posthumous records of Juan Gabriel (10) and Joan Sebastian (9). Talented artist Christian Daniel most recently collaborated with Abraham Mateo and Farruko in the single “Locamente Enamorado,” which has been on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart for the past two weeks.

The awards ceremony will also feature a star-studded array of award presenters including: Ana Belena, Anabelle Acosta, Ana Lorena Sanchez, Arthur Hanlon, Angelica Celaya, Carlos Gomez, Carlos Hermosillo, Carmen Aub, Cynthia Olavarria, Don Francisco, Emeraude Toubia, Erika Ender, Jesus More, Julio Cesar Chavez, Julio Vaqueiro, Kate del Castillo, Lambda Garcia, Larry Hernandez, Manuel Turizo, Mariana Seoane, Regulo Caro, Rodner Figueroa, Rodrigo Guirao, Santiago Ramundo, Spiff TV and Ulises Chaidez y Sus Plebes.

The “Latin AMAs” honors artists in the genres of Pop/Rock, Regional Mexican, Urban, and Tropical, as well as categories for Favorite Crossover Artist, Favorite Collaboration, New Artist of the Year, Artist of the Year and Album of the Year, among others. The “Latin AMAs” nominees are based on key fan interactions with music, including (but not limited to) sales, airplay, streaming and social activity tracked by Billboard through its data partners Nielsen Music and Next Big Sound.
