The first round of performers for the annual awards ceremony were announced on Thursday, with Daddy Yankee, Kali Uchis and Natti Natasha among the stars bringing their hits to the telecast.

Other performers include the Aguilar family -- Angela Aguilar, Leonardo Aguilar and Pepe Aguilar -- who will deliver a multigenerational performance of classic mariachi songs. Chino y Nacho will be reuniting and performing a medley of their fan-favorite songs, including the hits “Niña Bonita,” “Andas En Mi Cabeza,” and “Me Voy Enamorando.”
