The Latino artists with the most nominations this year are Marc Anthony, Prince Royce, Alejandro Sanz and Carlos Vives.
Iconic salsa singer, Marc Anthony, is at the top of the list with a total of five nominations, two of which are for his collaboration with Tito El Bambino in his hit song “Porque Les Mientes?”

The presenters and performers
The awards show, taking place in Miami’s American Airlines Arena, will be hosted by Mexican beauty, Ninel Conde and Cuban darling, William Levy.
Although these presenters will be great eye-candy throughout the night, the real bang of the night will be those who will rock at the Premio Lo Nuestro stage.
Romeo Santos, Victor Manuelle, Prince Royce, Alejandra Guzman, Marco Antonio Solis, Banda el Recodo, J. Balvin and Jencarlos Canela, are among the many artists who will have spectators cantando y bailando.

Not only is Marc Anthony the most nominated of the night, but he is also the big winner of the night.
The “Vivir Mi Vida” singer will receive the Premio a la Excelencia for his 20-year trajectory.
The GRAMMY-winning artist, who has sold over 12 million albums worldwide, will join other great artists with this merit, including Celia Cruz, Juan Luis Guerra, Los Tigres del Norte and Vicente Fernandez.
The 26th annual Premio Lo Nuestro awards show will broadcast live on February 20 via the Univision network.
