The 2023 Latin Grammy Awards are set to go forward on Nov. 16 in Seville, Spain.

“At this time, no modification of the Latin GRAMMY Week calendar is planned,” a representative of the Latin Recording Academy told Billboard Español on Friday (Oct. 20) when asked about any possible changes after the cancellation of MTV EMAs, which were set for Nov. 5 in Paris, “given the volatility of world events.”

In its Thursday announcement, Paramount, the parent company of MTV, said: “As we watch the devastating events in Israel and Gaza continue to unfold, this does not feel like a moment for a global celebration. With thousands of lives already lost, it is a moment of mourning. We look forward to hosting the MTV EMAs again in November of 2024.”

On Thursday, Danna Paola, Sebastián Yatra, Paz Vega and Roselyn Sánchez were announced as hosts of the 24th annual Latin Grammys, which for the first time are scheduled to take place outside the United States.
