Tropical rhythms fuse with the best of Latin rock and pop on stage, stars are dressed to impress and the crowd goes wild -- it’s the Latin Grammys -- but first, the nominations.

The 14th Annual Latin Grammy Awards are fast approaching and, to mark the beginning of the countdown, the Latin Recording Academy announced the nominations for Latin music’s biggest night during a press conference on Wednesday morning.

Carlos Vives’ return to music has been received with 5 nominations including “Song of the Year,” “Record of the Year,” and “Album of the Year.” In the latter category, and perhaps the most coveted of the night, the Colombian star’s “Corazón Profundo” will face the likes of Draco Rosa with “Vida,” Natalie Cole's “En Español,” and Alejandro Sanz with “La Música No Se Toca,” among others.
