In addition, prolific urban Latin music singer-songwriter Yandel; Venezuelan singer-songwriter Nacho; CNCO, one of the most-feted new groups in Latin music history, and international pop star and actor Jencarlos Canela, will also hit the stage at the much awaited awards show. “Premios Tu Mundo” will be preceded by a one-hour pre-show special “Alfombra de Premios Tu Mundo” and both will air simultaneously on Universo, the fastest growing Spanish-language entertainment cable network in the U.S., and in 24 countries throughout the Americas on Telemundo Internacional. Tickets for “Premios Tu Mundo” are available at Ticketmaster.com and the AA Arena box office.
Les Twins (Laurent Nicolas Bourgeois and Larry Nicolas Bourgeois), the self-taught duo that became well known when their street dancing videos received millions of views on YouTube and made their way from performing on the streets of Paris to sharing a stage with Beyonce, Jay-Z and Missy Elliot, won the inaugural season of NBC's new dance competition series "World of Dance." The program was led by a judging team of extraordinary dance superstars - Jennifer Lopez (who also serves as an executive producer), Derek Hough, NE-YO and host/mentor Jenna Dewan Tatum.
Leading all music nominees this year, CNCO kicked off their first headlining tour this year, the Más Allá Tour, which has visited over 40 cities in 14 countries in the U.S. and Latin America.

His latest hit in collaboration with CNCO, “Hey DJ,” is nominated for Party-Starting Song by iHeartRadio. For the first time as a solo artist, after conquering fame as part of Chino y Nacho with their signature tropical and pop sounds, Nacho is churning out his own successful songs. His most recent hit, “Bailame,” continues to conquer the Latin music world. Jencarlos Canela was most recently seen at the 2017 MLS All-Star game in Chicago where he sang the national anthem. The multi-platinum artist collaborated with country singer/songwriter Billy Ray Cyrus on a new version of the hit “Achy Breaky Heart” for its 25th anniversary, and just launched “Dure Dure” with renowned reggaeton artist Don Omar.
