History

On January 20, 2000 the Latin Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences announced that the inaugural Latin Grammy Awards were going to take place on September 15, 2000 in Los Angeles and the awards ceremony would be broadcast in the United States by CBS, which will also distribute it to other countries. Nominations in 40 categories were expected to be released in August 2000[3].

The list of nominees for the 1st Annual Latin Grammy Awards, slated for September 13, 2000 in Los Angeles, was unveiled on Friday, July 7, 2000 in a Miami ceremony hosted by Michael Greene, President of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences.

Leading the chase for statuettes were Marc Anthony, Shakira and Fito Paez with five nominations each. Juan Luis Guerra, Carlos Vives, and Maná, garnered four nominations. Earning three nominations were Luis Miguel, along with La Ley. Ricky Martin earned for two nominations. Christina Aguilera, received a nod on the Latin side of the musical divide for the Spanish-language remake of "Genie in a Bottle" titled "Genio Atrapado". In addition to the awards, Emilio Estefan Jr. was honored as the Latin Academy's First Person of the Year. That award was presented during a dinner on September 11, 2000 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.

The awards were organized by the Latin Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (LARAS), incorporated by NARAS in 1997. LARAS is a membership-based association of musicians, producers, engineers and other recording professionals. The list of final nominees revealed was a result of balloting by LARAS members[4].
