Mexican pop duo Jesse & Joy were the big winners at the 13th Latin Grammy Awards, held at the Mandalay Bay Events Centre in Las Vegas, Nevada. The siblings took home four awards, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year for their track Corre! and Best Contemporary Pop Vocal Album for Con Quien Se Queda El Perro?
"Thanks to the best fans in the world," Jessie said after receiving the awards, adding, "It feels incredible. We've not been at the Latin Grammys since 2007 so this feels like a great comeback."
Meanwhile, Colombian pop-rock singer Juanes, who was accompanied by his wife, model Karen Martinez (the couple have been together for eight years), won two awards for his MTV Unplugged set. One of those was for Album of the Year.
In other categories, Mexican group 3Ball Mty won the award for Best Newcomer, David Bisbal got Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album and Best Singer-Songwriter Album went to Gian Marco for 20 Anos.
