2011 Latin Grammys: Shakira Shines and Calle 13 Wins Big

Last night might have been all about stringin’ some tunes on the guitar for  the 45th Annual CMA Awards in Nashville, but tonight, all the  action was in Las Vegas for the 12th Annual Latin Grammy Awards.

With so many Latin lovers, including sexy stars like Sofia Vergara, Demi  Lovato and Shakira, the show was sure to be muy caliente. And it was.

Latin Music’s biggest night opened with host Fernando  Gonzalez and a performance of “Latinoamérica” from Calle  13, who were nominated for a record of 10 awards.

We already know those hips don’t lie, and neither does her music.

Seven-time Latin Grammy winner, and two-time Grammy winner Shakira, was  honored with the 2011 Latin Recording Academy Person of the  Year award last  night, and sang “Antes de las Seis,” from her album Sale El Sol.

The Colombian-Lebanese singer called the top honor “one of the most important  moments in my  life and the most important recognition I’ve received.”

She also tweeted her fans, “Gracias a mis colegas por acompañarme en una  de  las noches más bonitas  de mi vida. ¡Ustedes son el talento y la voz  de  Hispanoamérica! Shak,” which, according to our Spanish skills,  translates to,  “Thanks to my colleagues for joining me on one of the most beautiful nights of my life.You are  the talent and the voice  of Latin America! Shak.”

Lovato also had an important night as she made her debut on the Latin Grammy stage with Pablo  Alborán performing their song, “Solamente Tú.” Shortly after, Pitbull and Marc  Anthony rocked the crowd with “Rain Over Me.” And, you’d never  guess, Usher even sang a bit and showed off his Spanish tongue!

Shakira continued to get recognized, walking away with Best Female Pop Vocal  Album for Sale El Sol, giving her eight Latin Grammys in her career so  far.

But at the end of the night, Calle 13 dominated the show, taking home a  record of nine awards, including Album of the Year for Entren Los  Que Quieran.
