Over 30 different acts are scheduled to perform as actress Jacqueline Bracamontes returns to host the event, which will be televised on Univision starting at 8 p.m. (Eastern Time). The Mexican actress will reportedly be joined on stage by Puerto Rican actress Roselyn Sanchez as her co-host.
Roselyn Sanchez, who is also a popular singer herself, shared her excitement about hosting the Latin Grammys in a statement issued by Entertainment Weekly.
“I simply cannot wait for November 19th to have the honor to host the 16th Annual Latin Grammy Awards. To be able to celebrate the best of Latin music with our incredible artists is going to be one of the most memorable nights of my life. I appreciate the opportunity and I’m very much looking forward to having a fantastic time with my colleagues, friends and fans.”
If you will not be able to watch the 2015 Latin Grammy Awards ceremony on television, there are a couple of other ways to stay tuned and enjoy the overall experience live. First and foremost, viewers will be able to enjoy the live broadcast online simply by watching it on the ceremony’s official website, www.LatinGrammy.com.
When it comes to performances, the list of stars that will hit the stage includes such acts as Matisse, Raquel Sofia, Juan Luis Guerra, and J Balvin. There will also be an epic performance featuring Bomba Estereo and Grammy-winning rapper Will Smith, the latter of whom is returning to the stage with a new song after spending years away from the award show spotlight as a rapper.
In addition to seeing the numerous performances, presenters, and future award recipients at the star-studded ceremony, the online broadcast will feature even more program highlights.
For instance, viewers will still get a chance to see their favorite singers, musicians, and celebrities arrive on the red carpet long before the ceremony starts. They will also be able to enjoy the interviews conducted at multiple locations during the broadcast as well.
Along with the online broadcast, Univision Radio listeners can use the ceremony’s official Spanish-language radio network to listen to the entire event. The competition in each of the top award categories is very tight, especially when you take into consideration the popularity of the artists with multiple nominations.
