The Lo Nuestro 2022 Awards Gala, a ceremony of excellence in Latin music chosen by the public on university since 1989, is in its final countdown.
This year’s event will take place on February 24 in what will be the 34th annual Lo Nuestro gala. The Miami Arena will host the event, which will be broadcast live by university. The television network will extensively cover the arrival of singers, actors, presenters and celebrities from the world of Latin music.
The next edition, entitled “Live the moment”, is a cry of optimism after the dark times marked by the coronavirus pandemic. A total of 166 artists were nominated. This year, the ceremony includes new categories, such as DJ of the Year, Song of the Year, Pop-Urban/Dance and The Perfect Mix of the Year.
The most nominated artists for this year’s edition are Camilo, Christian Nodal and J Balvin. All received 10 nominations. Colombian Camilo aspires to win back-to-back Pop Song of the Year awards with his acclaimed songs ‘Amén’ and ‘Vida de Rico’.
Christian Nodal, who performed “Dime Cómo Quieres” in duet with Ángela Aguilar, aspires to win the Mexican song of the year. He also participates in the same category with “Duele”, where he collaborated with Alejandro Fernández.
J Balvin, in his urban genre, stands out in categories such as “Crossover” Collaboration of the Year for his hit “In Da Getto” and in Song of the Year for “Tu Veneno”.
The 34th edition of Lo Nuestro highlights the most successful genres of contemporary Latin music: pop, urban, regional Mexican and tropical. The voting process to choose the winners ended on February 7.
As tradition dictates, there will be a special “Night of Stars” before the ceremony where performers and guests will walk the Magenta Carpet.
One of the moving moments of the gala will be the presentation of the Lifetime Achievement Award which will go to the Mexican Paulina Rubio in recognition of a musical career spanning three decades.
Known as the “Golden Girl”, Rubio began her career in the 1980s by joining the pop group Timbiriche, and her popularity grew steadily with Paulina (released in 2000), and border girl (released in 2002).
In the 2021 edition, the Latin music scene came together to show its strength and power around the world during a gala that lasted more than four hours. Rosalía brought the Spanish flavor as she won Best Video of the Year with “TKN,” in a night of multiple triumphs for Bad Bunny, Camilo and Karol G.
