Juanes, Jesse y Joy win big at Latin Grammy Awards

Colombian rock superstar Juanes won the album of the year trophy for "Juanes MTV Unplugged" at the XIII Annual Latin Grammy Awards on Thursday evening in Las Vegas, and the Mexico City sibling pop duo Jesse y Joy (that's Jesse and Joy, to English speakers) won record of the year and song of the year for their melancholy, down-tempo lover's lament "¡Corre!" (Run!).

Certifying their swift rise from upstarts to establishment pros, Jesse y Joy, who were voted best new artist in 2007, this year also won for contemporary pop vocal album for "¿Con Quién Se Queda El Perro?" (translated as "Who Gets the Dog?"). They also won best short form music video for "Me Voy."

In contrast to last year, when the Puerto Rican sibling reggaeton-urban duo Calle 13 carted off practically every award save the Nobel Peace Prize, this year's haul was much more equitably distributed.
