The Latin American Music Awards will be the first-ever Spanish language award and it is modeled after the American Music Awards.
The show will be broadcast Oct. 8 on Telemundo.
The nominees for the LAMAs will be announced on Sept. 2 and it features 20 categories with fans voting for their faves.
The nominations for the awards are based on fan interactions with music like (but not limited to) airplay, streaming and social activity tracked by Billboard and sales.
The company behind this new award show is Dick Clark Productions and it's the first time they are recasting a Spanish language version.
