BMI's Latin songwriters and artists were hot hot hot at the recent 1st annual Latin Grammy Awards, presented by the Latin Recording Academy in Los Angeles. The two-hour ceremony aired nationally on CBS and was full of heart-felt speeches, in Spanish and English, as well as some of the best performances the Grammys have ever seen.

Songwriters represented by BMI won 80% of the total awards, including Luis Miguel and Santana who were the top winners, earning three Grammys each. Emilio Estefan, who was feted as the LARAS �Person of the Year� earlier in the week, took home two awards, as did Juan Luis Guerra and Latin music�s new �it� girl, Shakira.
