On Tuesday night, the Latin Recording Academy revealed the list of artists nominated for the 23rd edition of the Latin Grammy Awards to be presented at a ceremony to be held on November 17th at the Michelob Ultra Arena at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
Bad Bunny is the artist with the most nominations this year, including two in the main categories: album of the year with "Un verano sin ti" and recording of the year with "Ojitos lindos".
This year, the Academy received 18,000 entries for 53 categories to be awarded.
"There are 18,000 pieces that have to be classified, listened to and subsequently voted on. There is no doubt that the amount of talent out there is impressive," said Manuel Abud, president of the Latin Grammys, in an interview with Zona Pop CNN. "The truth is, I'm very excited about it, because it means that the creativity and hard work continues from the artistic community," he added.
The Latin Recording Academy also highlighted in a statement "the diversity of Latin music and its great cultural influence worldwide."
In addition to Bad Bunny as the highlight of the gala, the list of top nominations is followed by Rauw Alejandro with eight, the same number as Rosalía and with which she becomes the female artist with the most mentions in this edition of the awards.
Camilo, who was last year's top nominee, received six nominations among the different categories.
