The actresses Yalitza Aparicio and Ana Brenda Contreras will be conductors of the Latin Grammy Awards , together with the singer Carlos Rivera.
It was the Latin Recording Academy that reported the incorporation of both actresses on Wednesday, November 11, after Roselyn Sánchez announced that she could not host the awards ceremony after fracturing her foot.
“We regret to confirm that Roselyn Sánchez will not conduct the 21st annual Latin Grammy Awards,” the Academy announced in a statement.
After receiving the news, Aparicio shared that when she found out that she would be a host at the awards ceremony, someone told her that it was the result of her effort, “you also learn on the fly, so be calm .”

She added: “ I want to share with you how happy I am to have this opportunity, and how grateful I am to the Latin Grammys for allowing me to be together with Ana Brenda Contreras and Carlos Rivera conducting 21st Annual Latin Grammy Awards. One more line to the team tiger ”.
While she testified for Entertainment Weekly magazine about her first time as a host, she is excited to be a part of the awards ceremony.
Rivera celebrated that Yalitza is part of said event and commented: “What a thrill. We are going to have an incredible time ”.
For this year's edition, which will take place on Thursday, November 19 , the ceremony will have the theme “Music humanizes us”, and which will be produced from different cities and will have Miami as its main venue.

For example, Alejandro Fernández, Christian Nodal and Caliber 50 will perform from Guadalajara (Mexico); Fito Páez and Nathy Peluso will do it from Buenos Aires ; José Luis Perales will perform from Madrid ; Bad Bunny will participate from San Juan , and Anitta will sing from Rio de Janeiro (Brazil).
In the face of the health emergency due to coronavirus there will be no red carpet or live audience. And the Latin Grammy Premiere, where most of the awards are given, will take place on the same day as the ceremony, hours before the broadcast begins.
The Academy also detailed that there will be some special tributes to legends of Latin music. Thus, Natalia Jiménez and Carlos Rivera will honor Julio Iglesias, while Lupita Infante and Mariachi Sol De México by José Hernández will remember Pedro Infante.
For their part, Leslie Grace and Prince Royce will shake hands to pay tribute to Juan Luis Guerra; Juanes will host a tribute to Roberto Carlos, and Rauw Alejandro, Ivy Queen, Víctor Manuelle, Ricardo Montaner and Jesús Navarro will join forces to celebrate the legacy of Héctor Lavoe.

Ozuna, with eight; Anuel AA, with seven; Camilo and Carlos Vives, with six each; Kany García, with five, and Rosalía, Karol G and Residente, with four per head, complete the list of artists with more options to take the golden gramophone.
