Telemundo and Somos Productions will produce the fourth 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 three-hour special will showcase 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 25, 2018 at 8pm/7c, preceded by a one-hour carpet pre-show “La Alfombra de Latin AMAs” at 7pm/6c.  

The “Latin AMAs” honors artists in the genres of Pop/Rock, Regional Mexican, Urban, and Tropical, as well as categories for Favorite Crossover Artist, New Artist of the Year, Artist of the Year and Album of the Year, among others. The 2018 “Latin AMAs” nominees are based on key fan interactions with music, including sales, airplay, streaming and social activity tracked by Billboard through its data partners Nielsen Music and Next Big Sound from August 11, 2017 to August 9, 2018. The selection of the Favorite Video category is based on videos submitted by record labels and independent producers, and selected by a committee of industry professionals. This “producers’ choice award” takes into account the quality, content, and creativity of the music video. The winner will be chosen by the fans along with the rest of the Latin AMAs.

Created in 1973 by Dick Clark, the “American Music Awards” is one of the biggest music award shows in the world, watched in more than 160 countries. Telemundo’s “Latin AMAs” is quickly accumulating its own popularity. Last year’s show, hosted by millennial actress and Latin music phenomenon Becky G and international actor and singer Diego Boneta, and featuring top musical acts such as Camila Cabello, Fifth Harmony, Pablo Alboran, Pitbull and Prince Royce, reached a cumulative audience of 4.4 Million total viewers and 2.2 Million adults 18-49, according to Nielsen. The star-studded awards show, ranked as the #1 most social program of the night, excluding sports. From the start of voting, Latin AMAs generated over half a million social actions across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, the highest in Latin AMAs history.

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,” “X-Factor”), the market leader in audience participation and consumer engagement for live television.
