The winners of the Second Annual Latin Grammy Awards were announced during a press conference on Tuesday, October 30, 2001 at the Conga Room in Los Angeles, California.[1] The conference, which was broadcast live on the internet, was hosted by Jimmy Smits and Paul Rodriguez. Alejandro Sanz was the big winner winning four awards including Album of the Year. Juanes won three awards including Best New Artist.

Cancellation[edit]

Prior to the date of the event, the Latin Grammys were moved from Miami to Los Angeles due to protests by Cuban exiles for allowing musicians living Cuba to perform.[2] The awards were to have been presented at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, CA with a CBS national telecast on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. It was to be hosted by Jimmy Smits and Christina Aguilera. The telecast was cancelled because of the terrorist attacks that morning in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pennsylvania.[3] After many discussions about rescheduling the ceremony, The Latin Recording Academy determined it would be impossible to do so. Instead, the winners were announced at a press conference on October 30 at the Conga Room. The cancellation of the event cost the organizers an estimate of two million dollars in losses.[4]
