2020 Latin Grammy predictions: Bad Bunny, J Balvin, Karol G and Anuel AA will clean up, according to our odds

The 21st Annual Latin Grammy Awards will be held tonight, November 19, during a ceremony broadcast on Univision and hosted by salsa singer Victor Maneulle, Oscar nominee Yalitza Aparicio (“Roma“) and actress Ana Brenda Contreras. But who will win? Scroll down for our official odds in 13 categories including the top four general field races. Nominees are listed in order of their likelihood of winning with our projected winners highlighted in gold.

Our odds were calculated by combining the predictions of hundreds of Gold Derby users, and they expect good news for urban artists, especially Bad Bunny. The Puerto Rican rapper has nine bids overall and is predicted to win Album of the Year and Best Urban Music Album for his crossover hit “YHLQMDLG.” His frequent collaborator J Balvin has even more nominations (13, more than any other artist), and we’re betting on him to take home even more hardware: Record of the Year and Best Urban Fusion/Performance as one of many featured artists on Anuel AA‘s “China,” and Best Urban Song for his own “Rojo.”

Meanwhile, Anuel is tipped to win Best New Artist in addition to those two victories for “China,” while another performer on that song, Karol G, is also expected to take home Song of the Year as a co-writer of her hit “Tusa” featuring Nicki Minaj. Since Minaj also co-wrote the song, that would mean Minaj winning a Latin Grammy before a regular Grammy — she’s 0-for-10 at those all-genre music kudos. The same goes for rapper Travis Scott, who we think will claim Best Short Form Music Video for “TKN” with Rosalia.

Do you agree with those predictions? Who might we be underestimating? See our forecasts below.
