The Latin Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences is hosting the annual Latin Grammy Awards on Thursday night in Las Vegas. The show will feature some of the biggest names in Latin music.

At least 32 musicians will be onstage on the MGM Grand theater stage, including Ricky Martin, Natalia Jiménez, Nicky Jam, Farruko and Colombian artist Maluma. They will be joined by the all-girl band Fifth Harmony and Major Lazer. Perhaps the most highly anticipated performance of the night will come from Will Smith, who will be performing his first single in a decade, "Fiesta," with the Colombian band Bomba Estéreo.

Brazilian artist Roberto Carlos will be honored with the most prestigious award of the night, the Latin Recording Academy's person of the year award. Mexican artist Leonel García beat Natalia Lafourcade for most nominations of the night and could potentially take home both the song and album of the year awards, USA Today reported. 

The 16th annual Latin Grammy awards will air at 8 p.m. Eastern on Univision and can also be live-streamed via the Latin Grammy website
