Look who popped by our Local 2 Studios yesterday…Pili Montilla, the host of LATV, our sister network. She stopped in and talked to us about the Latin Grammys–OF COURSE!! She is attending the Grammys and her show will also cover the parties around town. You can tune in to LATV on Digital Channel 2.3 or on Comcast Cable Channel 321. http://www.click2houston.com/sponsors/13534325/detail.html

November 13th:A Hot Night in Houston
November 13, 2008

THIS ORIGINALLY WRITTEN/POSTED ON SEPT 9, 2008

Believe it or not the Latin Grammy Awards were launched just 8 years ago! Houston will host the grand event for the first time; joining previous host cities which include Los Angeles, New York, Las Vegas and Miami. Over the years, artists from Mexico, Brazil and Spain have taken the most trophies home.  One of my favorite songs is from Alejandro Sanz, La Tortura.  The video for La Tortura was ground breaking; it was the first time MTV showed a whole episode of their Making the Video series in another language. It was also the second Spanish-language video ever to enter in TRL’s countdown.

You’ll recognize these top musicians who won at last year’s award show, as well.

Laura Pausini: Best Female Pop Vocal Artist

 

Michael Salgado: Best Norteño Album

Calle 13: Best Urban Music Album

Juan Luis Guerra: Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year, Best Merengue Album
