Latin Grammys Heading To New York

The Latin Grammys are expected to announce today that New York will be the site of the 2006 awards.

The Latin Grammys announced today (April 11) that New York will be the site of the 2006 awards. Latin Academy of Recordings Arts and Sciences president Gabriel Abaroa joined New York mayor Michael Bloomberg and Univision anchor Barbara Bermudo at a news conference today at New York's City Hall to make the announcement.

The show will be held Nov. 2 at the city's Madison Square Garden. This marks the first time the Latin Grammys have been held in New York, having most recently been based in Los Angeles.

The 2005 ceremony was broadcast by Univision for the first time after a five-year stint on CBS. In another first, winning artists accepted their awards in their native tongues, instead of exclusively in English.
