The wildly entertaining trio of Will Smith, Marc Anthony and Bad Bunny will kick off the festivities at the 2018 Latin Grammy Awards.
The three artists teamed up earlier this year for the single “Esta Rico,” which they will perform live together for the first time on Nov. 15 when the Latin Grammys unfold at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Marc Anthony is a Latin Grammys legend, winning seven of the awards over the course of his career, while Bad Bunny is nominated in the evening’s best urban song category for “Sensualidad,” his track with Prince Royce and J Balvin.
J Balvin leads the Latin Grammys pack with eight nominations, with his hits “Mi Gente” feat. Willy William and “X” feat. Nicky Jam, both up for record of the year.
Nominations: J Balvin leads nominations with 8 nods, including 1 with Beyonce
Balvin is followed by Rosalía with five nominations; and El David Aguilar, Jorge Drexler, Kany García, Natalia Lafourcade, and producers Mauricio Rengifo and Andrés Torres with four nominations each.
The night’s previously-announced performers include Angela Aguilar, Pablo Alborán, El David Aguilar, J Balvin, Jorge Drexler, Halsey, Kany García, Karol G, Maná, Mon Laferte, Natalia Lafourcade, Victor Manuelle, Banda Los Recoditos, Carlos Vives, and Sebastián Yatra.
