(CBS/AP) Dominican singer, songwriter and producer Juan Luis Guerra leads the nominees at the 2012 Latin Grammy Awards.

The nominations for the 13th annual Latin Grammy honors were announced Tuesday in Los Angeles by the Latin Recording Academy. Mexican pop duo Jesse & Joy, Colombian rocker Juanes and Norteno group Los Tucanes de Tijuana were among the musicians participating in the announcement.

Several of the presenters were also nominees. Guerra, who wasn't on stage, has six nods, followed by Jesse & Joy with five. Juanes, Ricardo Arjona, Edgar Barrera, Carla Morrison, Arturo Sandoval, Ivete Sangalo and Caetano Veloso earned four nominations apiece.

This year's awards allow for 10 nominees, rather than five, in the general categories of record, album and song of the year, as well as best new artist.

The Latin Grammy Awards are to be presented Nov. 15 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas and broadcast live on Univision.
