Latin Grammy Awards

The Recording Academy has begun to finalize details for the first-ever Latin Grammy Awards, which will be held this September in Los Angeles. The ceremony will be held at the Staples Center Wednesday, Sept. 13, and the two-hour event will be broadcast on CBS. The 42nd Annual Grammy Awards were held at the same venue in February.

"The inaugural Latin Grammy Awards will be a worldwide celebration, which deserves a world-class venue," Michael Greene, president and CEO of the Recording Academy, said in a statement. "[The] Staples Center is the obvious choice. Everyone there has demonstrated to the Academy that they are dedicated to making the first Latin Grammy Awards a truly spectacular experience and a memorable event for our nominees, members, and the audience. This commitment to the Latin show from the proven Staples Center team will ensure a high-profile production that will resonate with the public."

Forty awards will be handed out during the ceremony. Last February, 98 Grammy awards were handed out, with a record-tying eight awards going to Latin artist Carlos Santana and his comeback album Supernatural.
