The musical festivities for 2016 are not over just yet, with the Latin Grammys 2016 set to take place this weekend. Celebrating the best of music recorded in Spanish or Portuguese, the awards will feature star-studded performances and famous faces taking on presenting duties.


The Latin Grammys are set to take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Thursday 17 November.
