Grammys vs Latin Grammys: What's the difference in the two awards?


Grammys recognize a wide range of musical genres, but Latin Grammys only honor Latin music.

The focus is on artists who create music in Spanish and Portuguese.

Grammy Awards cover 94 categories, including one general field and 11 genre-specific categories.

The Latin Grammys have more fields — one general field and 19 genre-specific categories.

Grammys are by Recording Academy, whereas Latin Recording Academy gives the Latin Grammys.

The shortlists for most Grammys are selected by voting Recording Academy members.

Review committees still handle nominations for the Latin Recording Academy.

The first Latin Grammy Awards was aired on September 13, 2000, while Grammys was held on May 4, 1959.

The 2023 Latin Grammy Awards will be held at the FIBES Conference and Exhibition Centre in Spain on Nov 16.
