Taking home big honors at the 11th Annual Latin Grammy Awards in Las Vegas on Thursday, November 11, were Mexican trio Camila and Dominican singer-songwriter Juan Luis Guerra, who took home three awards each.

Hosted by comedian Eugenio Derbez and actress and singer Lucero, the annual event celebrates the diversity of Latin musical styles, from Brazilian rock to tango, and a reported 12.8 million viewers in the US alone tuned into last year's awards ceremony.

Camila - Mario Domm, Pablo Hurtado and Samo - took home awards for Record of the Year for Mientes and Song of the Year for that album's title track. Canadian singer Nelly Furtado won Best Female Pop Vocal Album for Mi Plan, and Spanish singer Alejandro Sánz took home Best Male Pop Vocal Album for Paraíso Express. Havana-born singer/songwriter Alex Cuba won the Best New Artist award, while Guerra won Album of the Year for A Son De Guerra, one of three he earned that evening.

Performers included Enrique Iglesias, Marc Anthony, Ricky Martin, Nelly Furtado, Mala Rodríguez, Alejandro Fernández, and Camila. Martin, a three-time Latin Grammy winner (as well as 2006 Latin Recording Person of the Year) also presented the 2010 Latin Recording Person of the Year award to legendary tenor Plácido Domingo.
