2010 Latin Grammy Awards
The 2010 Latin Grammy Awards ceremony was held in Las Vegas and was hosted by comedian Eugenio Derbez and actress Lucero. The 11th annual Latin Grammy Awards show took place on Thursday night.
Probably to most “emotional” moment of the night was the one in which Placido Domingo received the person of the year Latin Grammy award from famous singer, Ricky Martin. It looks like the happiest person on the show actually was Placido Domingo, who was filled with “happiness and emotion.” “Sadly many artists who I shared the stage with are no longer with us,” Domingo, who is now 69 years old, said. “It gives me such happiness to keep on singing and living days like this,” he added according to BBC News.
Anyway, Placido Domingo wasn’t the only star to receive an award during the ceremony. Nelly Furtado received the female pop vocal award for her album “Mi Plan,” a Spanish language release. “Thank you very much for your support and your faith in me,” the singer said. But, the big winners of the night were Juan Luis Guerra and Mexican rock band Camila, each receiving three awards. Juan Luis Guerra won best album and also contemporary tropical album, both awards being given for his “A Son de Guerra.” The artist also won best tropical song for “Bachata en Fukuoka.” Other winners of the night included Alejandro Sanz, who won best male pop vocal album for “Paraiso Express” and Alex Cuba who won best new artist.
During the show, Latin music fans could hear some great performances from Juan Luis Guerra and Enrique Iglesias, but also from Prince Royce, who sang a bilingual cover version of “Stand By Me.”
