La salsera cubana Aymee Nuviola will also be performing her fun new single “Bailando Todo Se Olvida” junto al dúo urbano puertorriqueño Baby Rasta & Gringo. Y no se pueden perder Joey Montana, whose new single “Hola” es un hit muy pegajoso!
We’re still mourning the sudden loss of el Divo de Juárez, Juan Gabriel, and Telemundo will pay tribute to the late singer during the show. World music singer Shaila Durcal, Mexican songstress Lila Downs, and “Ambassador of Mexican Music” Aida Cuevas will be joined on stage by Gabriel’s mariachi band Mariachi De Mi Tierra, which toured with him for more than 20 years.
Watch the Latin AMAs, hosted by Mexican singer/actress Lucero, live from the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles on Thursday, October 6 at 8pm/7c on Telemundo. Tune in to the red carpet pre-show “La Alfombra de Latin AMAs,” hosted by Rashel Diaz, Jorge Bernal, Jessica Carrillo, and Quique Usales, at 7pm/6c.
