Bad Bunny, Ozuna and all the Finalists For 2020 Billboard Latin Music Awards

September 2, 2020

Back in February, Billboard announced the finalists for the Billboard Latin Music Awards, originally scheduled for April.

The pandemic led to the rescheduling of the awards, which are now taking place Oct. 21 in Miami. Likewise, Billboard's Latin Music Week, which this year celebrates its 30th anniversary, will stream live Oct. 20-23, featuring conversations with a roster of marquee artists, including Ozuna, Rosalia, Maluma, Black Eyed Peas, Carlos Vives and Los Tigres del Norte.

As urban music continues to dominate Billboard’s Latin music charts, two of the genre’s most prolific names -- Bad Bunny and Ozuna -- lead the list of finalists for the 2020 Billboard Latin Music Awards with 14 mentions each. They were followed in number of nods by other stars of the genre: Daddy Yankee and J Balvin both have 12 finalist mentions; Anuel AA has 11; and Farruko has 10.

Bad Bunny, Ozuna and J Balvin will also compete for artist of the year, a category that also includes bachata star Romeo Santos, who frequently collaborates with urban artists.

While the Billboard Latin Music Awards honor artists in the main musical genres of Latin Pop, Tropical, Latin Rhythm and Regional Mexican, the dominance of urban is felt across the board.
