Premios Juventud has taken on a change of format for this year's show opting to focus on music and dropping categories from pop culture like telenovelas and sports. “Premios Juventud 2017 will celebrate the best musical talent that appeals to the young Latino audience in a revamped format with fresh and fun categories,” said Univision’s President of Music Jorge “Pepo” Ferradas. “We will further connect with the younger generation by inviting new artists and recognizing important issues and amazing individuals who make our world a better place.”
