According to a joint statement from Billboard and Telemundo on Thursday, Chayanne will receive the icon award at the 2022 Billboard Latin Music Awards.

The Billboard Icon Award is granted to a performer who has established a career that has not only endured over time but has also elevated them to the status of the most eminent figure in their genre, recognized on a global scale for their achievements in both music and business. The balladeer and pop icon from Puerto Rico, whose career spans more than four decades, has established a reputation as one of the most adored and regarded figures in the entertainment business.

On Thursday, September 29, the awards presentation, which will be broadcast live on Telemundo, is scheduled to feature a performance by Chayanne. He will also appear at this year’s Billboard Latin Music Week and conduct his first interview in more than five years.

The Watsco Center in Miami will host the 2022 Billboard Latin Music Awards, the longest-running ceremony for Latin music. The 2022 Billboard Latin Music Awards finalists will be revealed on August 18.

At 8 p.m. ET, the three-hour live awards ceremony will start, followed by the one-hour red carpet special La Alfombra de los Premios Billboard. The evening will feature performances by the biggest names in Latin music. The awards show will be simultaneously broadcast on the Spanish entertainment cable network Universo, Telemundo International in the Caribbean and Latin America, and Peacock the following day on demand.

The Billboard Latin Music Awards take place in conjunction with Billboard’s annual Latin Music Week, which runs from September 26 to 30, and has done so for more than 20 years. This event is the biggest and most significant gathering of the Latin music business. Throughout the week in Miami, Latin Music Week will showcase exclusive performances and fan experiences in addition to conferences, discussions, and workshops at the Faena Forum.

Additionally, it will mark the debut of Billboard Espaol, the magazine’s brand-new Spanish-only website, which will go live in September. Visit billboardlatinmusicweek.com for registration details and more information.
