A spokesman for the Latin Recording Academy told EFE that they are contemplating holding the Latin Grammys in a different city, even outside the U.S.
"We have been in talks with several cities, including cities outside the United States, for next year's celebration," he said.
The 23rd edition, held last year, took place for the first time in Las Vegas, different from the traditional base of Miami, where they had been held since its inception.
"We are very excited with the interest we have received from major international cities," added the spokesperson, without revealing any possible city to which the Latin music event would be moved.
As reported by EFE and according to several versions of the Spanish press, the awards could be held in the European country, as a result of an agreement between Radio Televisión Española (RTVE) and the Latin Recording Academy that could be finalized in January. However, this was not confirmed by the spokesperson.
The Latin Grammy Awards are organized by the Latin Recording Academy and the awards are given to music industry professionals that showcase the current "diversity of Latin music and its great cultural influence worldwide," the organization mentioned alongside the announcement of the nominees for the next awards ceremony.
In the last awards held on Nov. 17, Uruguayan musician Jorge Drexler won the Latin Grammy for best song and recording of the year, while Spanish artist Rosalía won the award for best album of the year for Motomami.
