The Latin Recording Academy shared its list of nominees for the 2022 Latin Grammys on Sept. 20. Bad Bunny swept the nominations, netting 10 nods overall. His chart-topping album "Un Verano Sin Ti" received nominations for album of the year and best urban music album. Rauw Alejandro, Christina Aguilera, and Rosalía also received a number of noms.

At the 2021 Latin Grammys, Colombian singer-songwriter Camilo led the nominations and went home with four awards, including album of the year. That year, Bad Bunny also made waves with a dramatic fire-heavy performance and received four nominations, which marked an important moment for reggaeton. Given the number of nominations he received for the upcoming show, it's almost guaranteed he'll perform again this year.

The 23rd Latin Grammys air on Nov. 17. Ahead, check out all the nominees.
