2011 Latin Grammy Nominations Announced
The 12th Latin Grammy Awards nominations were announced today. Puerto Rico’s Calle 13 leads the nominations with 10, a record number in Latin Grammy history. The group’s nomination includes the prestigious album of the year and song of the year categories for the album and song Latinoamérica. Calle 13 is currently one of our top World Music artists, and there are still seats available for shows in New York and San Francisco.
Also on the list is well known pop cross-over artist Shakira. She’s received the album of the year nod for Sale El Sol, along with 2 other nominations. Likewise Enrique Iglesias earned an album of the year nomination for Euphoria. Enrique is touring extensively, and there’s ample opportunity to catch a show between now and the end of October.
Record of the year nominations include Ricky Martin‘s Lo Mejor De Mi Vida Eres Tú. At the moment Ricky isn’t touring, but no doubt the Menudo veteran will be hitting the road again sometime in the future. You can catch a lot of the other nominees on tour and the actual Latin Grammy Award show Nov. 10 on Univision.
