As usual, the MTV Video Music Awards show has a line-up filled with talented performers and nominees, including Hispanic artists like Maluma and CNCO, who will be performing and counting on support from fans to win the awards they are nominated for.

Maluma is a Colombian singer and songwriter who is signed with Sony Music Colombia, Sony Latin, and Fox Music record labels. In addition to his scheduled performance, Maluma is nominated for Best Latin for his song with J. Balvin titled “Que Pena”. Other nominees in that category include “China” by Anuel AA ft Daddy Yankee, Ozuna, Karol G. and J. Balvin, “Yo Perrero Sola” by Bad Bunny, “Amarillo” by J. Balvin, and more. 

CNCO, a Latin-American boy band that was formed on the Spanish singing competition show La Banda, will also be performing. The group members are Joel Pimentel, Richard Camacho, Erick Brian Colón, Christopher Vélez, and Zabdiel De Jesús. The group is nominated for Best Quarantine Performance for their MTV Unplugged At Home performance as well as for Best Choreography with Natti Natasha for “Honey Boo”. 

The boy band has been marking their territory in the Latin Music Industry since winning La Banda and being signed to a five-year recording contract with Sony Music Latin. This year at the MTV Video Music Awards they are now nominated for Best Group alongside other bands like 5 Seconds of Summer and BTS.

These Hispanic artists need your support during this year’s VMAs, either by tuning in to watch them perform or by voting for them on the MTV website.
