Meet the 2022 Latin Grammy Best New Artist Nominees & Vote For Who Should Win
The 23rd annual Latin Grammys is a week away, where Bad Bunny is the top contender with 10 nods, including album of the year for his Billboard 200-topping Un Verano Sin Ti. The Puerto Rican artist is followed by Mexican hitmaker Edgar Barrera with nine nominations; Rauw Alejandro with eight nominations; Christina Aguilera and Rosalía with seven nods each; and last year’s top winner, Camilo, with six nominations.
But one of the most coveted awards of the night is best new artist. This year, the Latin Recording Academy recognized 11 up-and-coming talents from different regions of the world such as Mexico, Brazil, and Peru, and of ages ranging from 15 to 95 years old.
Cuban singer-songwriter Angela Álvarez, for example, becomes the oldest musician to ever be nominated for best new artist. “It was a very big but very beautiful surprise, and I thought afterward that all my dreams came true. At 95, but that doesn’t matter,” she previously told Billboard.
Meet all of this year’s nominees and vote for who should win below. (Editor’s Note: The poll is solely fan-based and not tied to any award decision.)
The Latin Grammy Awards — which “promise to honor the legacy, celebrate the present and embrace the future of Latin music, with deliberate consciousness, paying-it-forward to the next generations of music creators,” according to a press statement — will be held Nov. 17 at the Michelob Ultra Arena at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, and will air live on Univision beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
The Latin Grammy Premiere, a non-televised ceremony in which the winners in most categories are announced, will take place before the broadcast.
