About the Awards Show:

Latin Music's longest running and most prestigious awards show will take place May 8th at its new larger home - the Miami Arena. The awards show caps Billboard's Latin Music Conference, presented by Heineken, and in association with Garnier Fructis, which runs from May 5th through May 8th. Last year the broadcast was the highest rated special in Telemundo's history.

The Billboard Latin Music Awards is the only ceremony whose winners are based on radio and retail chart performances. Finalists for the Billboard Awards are chosen solely based on their performances on Hot Latin Tracks and Top Latin Albums.

The Billboard Latin Music Awards honor the most popular albums, songs, and performers in Latin music, as determined by the actual sales and radio airplay data that informs Billboard's weekly charts during a one-year period from the issue dated February 16, 2002 through this year's February 8 issue. Finalists, and the eventual winners, reflect performance of new recordings on Billboard's sales charts, including Top Latin Albums, and radio charts, including Hot Latin Tracks, with album categories confined to titles that did not chart before Billboard's Nov. 17, 2001 issue but excluding finalists from the prior-year's Billboard Latin Music Awards. Based on sales data compiled by Nielsen SoundScan and radio information monitored by Nielsen Broadcast Data Systems, Billboard's charts are the world's most authoritative music charts.
