Premios Juventud 2016 Performers: Prince Royce, Anahi, Becky G, More Confirmed For Award Show

Premios Juventud, an awards show dedicated to young entertainment lovers, is less than a month away.

Now, the Spanish-language network has revealed the first wave of artists scheduled to perform.

Last year, the award show revolved around a "video games" theme. This year ---considering the show will air on a Thursday--- the theme will be "Throwback Thursday" or #TBT. Here are 11 artists expected to sing at this year's #TBT edition. More artists will be confirmed in the coming weeks.

  • CNCO
  • Luis Coronel
  • Anahí
  • Farruko
  • Prince Royce
  • J Balvin
  • Jesse & Joy
  • Sofía Reyes
  • Becky G
  • Laura Pausini
  • Karol G

The 2016 Premios Juventud nominates artists in categories such as music, sports, movies, TV and social media. The winners are chosen by the votes of the fans. 

Aside fromm Maluma, Nicky Jam is one of this year's most nominated artist, nabbing recognitions in categories such as Voz del Momento and El Super Tour. Luis Coronel, who swept almost all of the awards at the 2015 Premios Juventud ceremony, also leads the pack with nominations for Mi Artista Regional Mexicano and La Canción Mas Pegajosa. Telenovela sweethearts Maite Perroni and Anahí are also nominated.

Winners will be announced at the 2016 Premios Juventud on July 14 at the Bank United Center in Miami, Fla. via Univision. Check out the complete list of nominees below.
