The XIII Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards not only lived up to its billing as The Biggest Night in Latin Music, it proved to be the biggest party in Latin music with one dynamic musical performance after another. Taking place Nov. 15 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, the party certainly didn't stop for brother-and-sister pop/rock duo Jesse & Joy, who won four Latin GRAMMY Awards, including Song Of The Year award for "¡Corre!" Also picking up Latin GRAMMYs were Juanes, Carla Morrison, Don Omar, and Arturo Sandoval, who won two awards each.
