Broadcast live from Miami on Telemundo on April 24, the awards show will air at 7:00 pm ET and feature some of the biggest names in Latin music.

Sanchez, a singer/songwriter/producer/model who hails from Puerto Rico, returns as host for a second time after co-hosting the show in 2003.

On TV she appeared as a regular on Without a Trace before joining the cast of Devious Maids. In 2003, Sanchez was nominated for a Latin Grammy for “Amor, Amor,” the first single from her debut album.

Gonzalez, who recently joined Telemundo to develop and host a new variety series, is making his debut on the network as co-host of the awards show, which this year is celebrating its 25th anniversary. With a career that spans more than 30 years, the Venezuelan host spent 13 years as one of the hosts of Univision‘s Despierta America in addition to writing, producing and starring in several award-winning plays such as Visa por un Sueño.

After appearing on the Mexican telenovela En Otra Piel, Flores joined Reina de Corazones. The Mexican actress has worked in TV, theater and cinema and has hosted several television shows. Musically, the entertainer has recorded 16 albums and the most recent project, Desde mi Corazon, celebrates her musical career.

Prior to the awards show, stars will walk the red carpet and will be seen on the special La Alfombra de los Premios Billboard, which will be hosted by Telemundo personalities Monica Noguera and Rashel Diaz with Jorge Bernal of La Voz Kids and Suelta la Sopa. Guadalupe Venegas of Telemundo and Karim Mendiburu, Christian Ramirez and Kika Rocha will also be featured on the special.

Fonsi Sharing the Stage with David Bisbal at the Billboard Latin Music 25th Anniversary Concert

Luis Fonsi is ready to Liv it up this month…

Billboard organized the one-of-a-kind show as a milestone to celebrate it’s longest-running event, the Billboard Latin Music Conference.

The conference, which takes place April 21-24 at the JW Marriot Marquis in Miami, will feature the top executives and artists in the industry—including Enrique Iglesias, Laura Pausini, Carlos Vives and Gloria Trevi—over three days of panels and showcases.

The conference culminates with the Billboard Latin Music Awards, which will air live April 24 on the Telemundo.

The 25th anniversary concert will be hosted by Telemundo personalities Jorge Bernal and Kimberly Dos Ramos.

“A 25th anniversary is not something that happens every day, so we really made an effort to bring the very best artists we could,” says Leila Cobo, executive director for Latin content and programming at Billboard. “The fact that Fonsi and Bisbal were both in Miami, that they both are in the midst of releasing new albums and that they are friends just made this occasion even more special. This is truly a one-of-a-kind event.”

Bisbal last week released his new album, Tu y Yo, which topped Spain’s sales charts and immediately went double platinum, also reaching No. 1 in six other countries.

Fonsi will release his new studio album, 8, later this spring. His new single, “Corazón en la maleta,” is No. 8 this week on Billboard’s Latin Pop Airplay chart.
