Confirmed acts include Colombian star Sebastián Yatra — the most nominated artist of the evening with 10 nods — Christian Nodal, El Alfa, Gloria Trevi, La Adictiva, Lupita Infante, Paulina Rubio, Prince Royce and Tini.
Like most of the newly announced performers, Yatra will be performing an unreleased song that’s set for arrival on Feb. 16.

Nodal has seven nominations this year while Tini is nominated in the remix of the year category for “La Ducha (Remix)” with Elena Rose, Maria Becerra, Greeicy and Becky G.
Mexican music will additionally be represented with performances by La Adictiva, who will make their Premio Lo Nuestro on-stage debut with their hit “JGL,” and Mexican-American singer-songwriter Lupita Infante. This year, Infante — the granddaughter of iconic mariachi singer and actor Pedro Infante — is nominated for regional Mexican female artist of the year.
Trevi, who is nominated for female pop artist of the year, will perform her ballad “Ensayando Como Pedirte Perdón.” Returning performer El Alfa, known for his rugged dembow flow, will perform an unreleased single and has three nominations this year.
Rubio, who holds two nominations this year, will make the worldwide debut of her upcoming single “La Chica Dorada (The Golden Girl),” while Royce will perform his newest single that’s set to drop in the coming months. This year, the twenty-time Premio Lo Nuestro winner has 5 nominations.
