After revealing the nominations early December of last year, Premio Lo Nuestro has now announced the first wave of artists who will perform at the 28th annual award show. 

The first set of performers include Cuban duo Gente de Zona, Regional Mexican singer Gerardo Ortiz, Bachata crooner Prince Royce, Mexican pop star Thalia, Puerto Rican urban artist Yandel and Colombia sensation Maluma. All of these artists ---except the "Borro Cassette" singer--- have also nabbed nominations at this year's star-studded ceremony. 

In addition to the outstanding lineup and nominees, Premio Lo Nuestro will honor Colombian singer Carlos Vives with the renowned "Premio Lo Nuestro a la Excelencia" award for his extraordinary music career and contributions made through the years to Latin music. "Premio Lo Nuestro" will air at 7 p.m. on Thursday, February 18 via Univision.
