The first set of artists that will perform at this year’s Premios Juventud have been officially revealed today (June 29). The diverse lineup includes impressive artists from popular Latine music genres, highlighting some of those recognized faces in pop, reggaeton, Regional Mexican, and bachata

Premios Juventud are shaping up to be an unforgettable night for Danna Paola, Grupo Firme’s vocalist Eduin Caz, and Prince Royce. Not only will they host the 19th edition of the highly-anticipated award show, but they’ll also be performing during the ceremony. Other performers include the Mexican-American songstress Ángela Aguilar, who’s up for seven awards including the new category of “Female Artist – On the Rise”; the popular boy band CNCO, who’s set to make a television debut performance of a new single and nominated for two awards; Mexican Regional artist Lenin Ramírez, who’s set to be part of a surprise special performance; the Latine duo Mau y Ricky, who’s nominated for two awards and set to perform “Mal Acostumbrao” and “Llorar y Llorar”;  and Kenia Os, who’s a popular Mexican content creator making inroads in music. 

It’s an exciting time for the award show. For the first time ever, Premios Juventud is being held in Puerto Rico at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico José Miguel Agrelot. This year’s theme is “Celebrate Your Passion.” Based on this year’s nominations, the ceremony is set to be a night full of top-charting artists.
