Tr3s Latino Artist of the Year
Shakira, Wisin y Yandel, Aventura, Pitbull, Camila and Daddy Yankee have all been nominated for Tr3s: MTV, Musica y Mas's first ever "Latino Artist of the Year" award. The winner will be selected by Tr3s viewers, who will cast their votes online at tr3s.com. The winner of the coveted Moon Man will be announced on Tr3s on September 18th at 5pm during the transmission of the 2010 MTV VMAs.
This is pretty incredible considering it's going to be announced during this year's VMA's. I'm glad MTV didn't announce this during another program or a Latino awards show. They are actually putting Latino culture in mainstream TV! Now whether or not it will be aired is another question. Where does my vote go? I have to favor Shakira and Pitbull. They have the best music and have probably brought a lot of influence into the music scene. Go them!
