Telemundo will produce the third annual “Latin AMAs” (Latin American Music Awards) paying tribute to today’s most influential and iconic Latin artists, as voted by the fans in the tradition of the “American Music Awards,” the world’s largest fan-voted award show. The two-hour special showcases performances by artists that are relevant to U.S. Latinos, regardless of language. The program will broadcast live from the prestigious Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California, on Thursday October 26, 2017 at 9pm/8c, preceded by a one-hour carpet pre-show “La Alfombra de Latin AMAs” at 8pm/7c.
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.
Fans from the United States and Puerto Rico will be able to vote for their favorite artists through a process that will be powered by Telescope Inc. (“The Voice,” “American Idol,” “Premios Tu Mundo,” “X-Factor”), the market leader in audience participation and consumer engagement for live television. Information about the voting process for the “Latin AMAs,” as well as exclusive content about this year’s event, can be found at LatinAMAs.com - the official website of the 2017 “Latin AMAs.”
