American Music Awards gives voice to musical talents around the globe

No other art form celebrates diversity better than music. From folk tunes to hip-hop beats, popular musical styles not only exemplify creativity in many forms, but also bridge different people across social and ethnic backgrounds.

The American Music Awards (AMA) best captures this celebration of myriad culture by letting the public—not judges—determine which stars deserve recognition. For years, the musical melting pot has lauded chart-topping performers such as King of Pop Michael Jackson, powerhouse balladeer Whitney Houston, and country-pop superstar Taylor Swift. These and others represent the spectrum of talent that has touched fans and influenced countless other musicians.

Today, the award show continues to showcase diversity with artists both from the U.S. and the world over, defying boundaries to honor what people believe is great music. Here are just some of the world’s most dazzling acts we look forward to watching at this year’s AMA.

Luis Alfonso Rodriquez López-Cepero, better known as Luis Fonsi, has earned global recognition with his hit song “Despacito” featuring rapper and fellow Puerto Rican Daddy Yankee. The music video has garnered more than four billion views on Fonsi’s YouTube channel, with the song landing on the top spot of most Latin Billboard chart. Fonsi has received several nominations including Collaboration of the Year and Favorite Song under Pop/Rock with Justin Bieber and Daddy Yankee, Video of the Year with Daddy Yankee, and Favorite Artist under the Latin category.
