News Americas, LAS VEGAS, Nevada, Fri. Nov. 15, 2013: With 30 plus years as a singer, Panama-born Miguel Bosé will be lauded by the 14th annual Latin Grammy’s in Las Vegas this November 21st.

The premier Latin music event set for the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, will pay homage to Bosé , this year’s Person of the Year.

Bosé started his career as an actor, participating in various movies but in 1977, Bosé signed a contract with CBS Records, and he remained with them until 1984.
He had 7 top ten hits in a disco/new wave trend that earned him a secure spot in every televised song festival held in the aforementioned countries, but, by 1983, his star had severely waned in Italy, and he rarely performed there again until the 2000s, retreating to Latin American markets instead.

In 1983, 1984, and 1985, he participated in the “Llena Tu Cabeza De Rock” television specials on Puerto Rico WAPA-TV. But it was in 1985 that he became an international superstar, when his song “Amante bandido” rose to the top of the charts all over Latin America and in Spain. The video to that song also became one of the most widely seen Spanish music videos, with Bose playing both a Superman style superhero and an Indiana Jones type of adventurer in it.

The Latin Grammy’s will be broadcast live on the Univision Network Nov. 21 from 8 – 11 pm ET / PT (7 pm Central).

Actress and singer Lucero returns as the host while Alejandro Sanz along with 29 students from The Berklee College of Music are the latest additions to the musical line up.

Others include LMFAO, Marc Anthony, Miguel Bosé, Jesse & Joy (with Mario Domm), Natalia Lafourcade, Draco Rosa, and Carlos Vives. As some of the confirmed presenters are actors Omar Chaparro, Ninel Conde, Ximena Navarrete, Ivan Sanchez, Blanca Soto, Mayrin Villanueva, and David Zepeda.

This year’s nominees are Sanz, who has four nominations this year including: Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year for “My Martian” Album Of The Year and Best Pop Vocal Album Of Contemporary by The Music No It Toca while the Carnival Band is nominated for Best Banda Album The Return of Life.

Grammy winner and three-time Latin Grammy winner Ricky Martin is nominated for Record Of The Year for “More and More” with Draco Rosa.
