As was widely expected, Miami has been confirmed as the site of the fourth annual Latin Grammy Awards, which will be held Sept. 3, Billboard Bulletin reports. The show will take place at the American Airlines Arena and will be broadcast by CBS in the U.S.
This marks the first time the Latin Grammys will not be in Los Angeles since their inception in 2000. In 2001, the show was scheduled to take place in Miami but was moved to L.A. at the last minute after Grammy officials failed to find a location at the Miami venue for protesters against the participation of Cuban artists at the event.
Alejandro Sanz was the big winner at last year's ceremony, taking home record and song of the year awards for "Y Solo Se Me Ocurre Amarte" from his "MTV Unplugged" disc (WEA Latina), which also triumphed in the album of the year category. In 2001, the singer/songwriter won Latin Grammys in four categories, including album, record, and song of the year for "El Alma al Aire."
