Colombian rock star Juanes was crowned the new king of the Latin Grammys Thursday night, sweeping the five awards for which he was nominated and becoming the new record holder – with 17 to his name overall.
"It really has been an amazing night," Juanes said when his hit, "La Vida ... Es Un Ratico," was named Record of the Year.
Gloria Estefan, who performed two songs during the three-hour ceremony, took home two awards: for Best Tropical Song and Best Traditional Tropical Album, for her 90 Millas. She was also honored Wednesday as the Latin Recording Academy Person of the Year.
