Alejandro Sanz won all three awards for which he was nominated at the fifth Premios de la Musica ceremony Friday in Madrid, but the sentimental vote went to Carlos Cano, who also won three awards just months after dying of heart failure at 54.

Sanz -- who missed the ceremony due to touring commitments in Mexico -- won for pop composer, pop artist, and album ("El Alma Al Aire"). Cano won for composer and artist in the Spanish song category and best song overall ("Maria La Portuguesa").

Ricky Martin stole the show when he joined leading gypsy flamenco-pop band Ketama and promising flamenco newcomer Estrella Morente for a live medley.

The event, organized by authors' and publishers' society SGAE and artists' association AIE, aired live on local Tele 5 TV. Funds raised by the event will go to victims of the recent earthquake in El Salvador.
