The biggest night in Latin Music just got even bigger!

With musical acts like J Balvin, Rachel Platten, and Diego Torres set to perform, we already couldn't wait for the Latin Grammys to air later this month.

But now we're even more excited for the award show, because we can exclusively reveal that Roselyn Sanchez will host the 17th Annual Latin GRAMMYs Awards!

The Devious Maids star is the perfect choice to host the ceremony — not only is she an accomplished singer-songwriter and actress, but the Puerto Rican bombshell is a very outspoken figure in the Latin community.

Last summer, the former beauty queen stood up for her fellow Latinas and quit the Miss USA pageant over Donald Trump's racist presidential bid speech.

Since the award show will take place after election day, we can only hope Sanchez is already rehearsing an opening number that celebrates the Republican nominee's loss! Ha!

Either way, we'll definitely be tuning into the Latin Grammys on November 17 at 8 p.m. EST on Univision!
