Latinos will represent at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, airing Sunday Feb. 10 at 8/7c on CBS!
Jennifer Lopez was added to the A-list roster of presenters, which includes host LL Cool J and Katy Perry. Juanes is one of the only Latin music performers and Bruno Mars will be performing alongside Rihanna and 16-time Grammy winner Sting.
After eliminating Latin Jazz last year—igniting an uproar by Carlos Santana, Paul Simon and Playboy Jazz festival emcee Bill Cosby—the Grammys brought back the category and then some. Latin Pop was added to the mix, as was Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative and Regional Mexican Music Album (including Tejano). Check out the 30 Latinos nominated for an award at the biggest night in music:
Miguel: After being snubbed at last year's Grammys, part-Mexican R&B crooner Miguel came back strong on his sophomore album Kaleidoscope Dream (Sept. 2012). The 27-year-old artist, who launches a Set The World on Fire tour with Alicia Keys this March, is nominated for five awards on Sunday: Song of the Year, Best R&B Performance, Best R&B Song, Best Urban Contemporary Album, and Best Rap Song (he's featured on Lotus Flower Bomb's "Wale").
