The Latin Grammys aren’t billed as “the biggest night in Latin music” for nothing.

The tagline — a legal trademark belonging to the Recording Academy, by the way — is hardly hyperbole.

The ceremony, which begins at 9 p.m., will be broadcast on Univision, and the network’s coverage will include a special pre-show, “Noche de Estrellas,” starting one hour prior.

Singer-songwriter Natalia Lafourcade, meanwhile, got five nods for her delicate confessional effort, “Hasta la Raíz,” including Album of the Year and one nomination shared with Garcia for the album’s title track.
