BURBANK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#20añosdepremios–EstrellaTV, a leading Spanish-language broadcasting network in the U.S., announced today the full list of nominees in 16 categories for the twentieth edition of Premios de la Radio 2019.
Themed “The Pride of Mexican Music,” Premios de la Radio 2019 will be broadcast live on the EstrellaTV Network on November 7, 2019 at 8PM from The Theatre at Grand Prairie in Dallas, Texas. Adriel Favela, Banda MS, Carín León, El Fantasma, Fuerza Régida and Virlán García are the recording artists with the greatest number of nominations, four each. One of this year’s telecast highlights will be a special musical tribute in honor of the late and iconic Mexican crooner José José, which will be performed by Banda MS. The in memoriam tribute will feature a medley of some of the Mexican legend’s most iconic top charting hits.
Every year, the list of nominees is determined by a committee headed by the founder of the awards show, Pepe Garza, programming director for KBUE-FM, La Que Buena de Los Angeles. The awards are based on the hottest radio artists in both the U.S. and Mexico.
This year, the category for “Best Female Artist” makes a comeback with nods going to international recording artists such as Ana Bárbara, Edith Márquez, Chiquis and Ángela Aguilar. Another new category making its debut at this year’s awards show is “Best Urban Corrido,” which celebrates hot trending sounds and rhythms being generated on the streets and the barrios.
Considered the most important and single-handedly longest running awards ceremony that celebrates and recognizes the best in Regional Mexican music in the United States, the 20th edition of Premios de la Radio 2019 has also added another new category, “Best Collaboration,” which recognizes recording artists from other Latin music formats who have delved into the Regional Mexican music space, such as Mexican pop superstar Belinda, sultry international pop sensation Natalia Lafourcade, and Latin Pop star Natalia Jiménez, to name a few.
“This year, we have several surprises in store, which I know our audience doesn’t expect and I’m certain will be much appreciated and enjoyed by all Regional Mexican music fans. The talent lineup and musical performances we have planned for the 20th anniversary of Premios de la Radio will be unforgettable and one-of-a-kind for sure. As is customary with our awards ceremony, you can expect only the top notch artists in our Mexican music universe,” stated Garza.
