The significant absence of the award ceremony was marked by singer Tekashi 6IX9INE who planned to perform with Yailin La Más Viral, but did not attend the award ceremony “for security reasons”. According to Univision, Puerto Rican authorities recommended to the production that for security reasons they not allow the artist to attend the ceremony after social networks alerted him about possible actions he could regret. “After an in-depth analysis of the aforementioned concerns and working very closely with local authorities, the Convention District, Public Security Department (in Puerto Rico) and Univision have concluded that artist ‘6IX9INE’ will not be a part of the event,” it was later announced through an official statement from the network.
The hosts of the award ceremony are Mexicans Alejandra Espinosa and Angela Aguilar, Puerto Rican Dayanara Torres and Brazilian-born soap opera actor Marcos Ornelas.
The ballroom and red carpet broadcasts began on the East Coast from 7 p.m. With Univision’s live broadcast. Hence, we will present to you every minute of the musical performances and the list of winners for the 36 contested categories between the music and culture categories.
