Enrique Iglesias Among Big Winners At 15th Latin GRAMMYs
It was a milestone evening for The Latin Recording Academy as the organization celebrated 15 years of The Biggest Night in Latin Music. It also proved to be a milestone evening for Spanish singer/songwriter Enrique Iglesias, Cuban singer/songwriter Descemer Bueno and Cuban reggaeton group Gente De Zona, who each earned three statues at the 15th Latin GRAMMY Awards on Nov. 20 at MGM Grand Garden Arena. The artists' smash collaboration "Bailando" netted them each Latin GRAMMYs for Best Urban Performance, Best Urban Song and Song Of The Year. The trio performed the song live via satellite to conclude the telecast.
Winning two GRAMMYs each were the late flamenco guitarist Paco de Lucía, who won Album Of The Year and Best Flamenco Album for Canción Andaluza; Puerto Rican duo Calle 13; Uruguayan singer/songwriter Jorge Drexler; and Colombian singer/songwriter Carlos Vives. Venezuelan singer/songwriter Mariana Vega was among the first-time Latin GRAMMY winners, taking home Best New Artist honors.
