Dr. Luke, who has enjoyed a creative renewal together with hits such as Doja Cat’s”Say So” and got his first Grammy nod this season in seven decades, was nominated as producer of this year.
Candidates for Latin American soda or reggaeton artist of the year are Poor Bunny, J Balvin, Karol G, Maluma and Ozuna.
BTS, Dan + Shay, Jonas Brothers, Maroon 5 and twenty one pilots will be the nominees for the best duo or group.
The service, including 2020′s most-played musicians and tunes on iHeartMedia radio channels nationally and the iHeartRadio program, will include live performances and tales of how the winners gained victory. The channels and program also will take the show.
