Puerto Rican reggaeton duo Calle 13 were the big winners at last night's Latin Grammys ceremony, winning nine awards out of 10 nominations, a record for the awards show. The band's eclectic style was a major boon for them, allowing the duo to win in diverse categories such as Urban, Tropical and Alternative along with more generalized categories like Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Song of the Year.

Shakira was another major presence at the show, which was broadcast last night from Las Vegas. The Colombian singer won for Person of the Year and Best Female Pop Album, and performed a set of three songs showing off her talent for Latin dance music, rock and ballads. Other winners included the Puerto Rican singer-songwriter Sie7e, who won for Best New Artist, and Mexican rockers Maná, who took home the prize for Best Rock Album.
