Calle 13 big Latin Grammy winners

Hip-hop duo Calle 13 have won album of the year at the Latin Grammy Awards in Las Vegas, earning the top prize after a record-breaking night that saw the Puerto Rican brothers receive the 19th award of their career.

Earlier in the night, the socially-charged rap group made history and won its 18th award - song of the year for Latinoamerica. That broke the record for most awards previously held by 17-time-winner Juanes.

"Today, the music triumphed," frontman Rene Perez Joglar said in Spanish.

Calle 13 were up for 10 awards in all and took home all but one because they were nominated twice for album of the year for their work on Shakira's Sale el Sol.

The Caribbean group's anti-establishment album Entren Los Que Quieran lent a political overtone to the annual awards show, with its lyrics that slam the White House and the Vatican while celebrating the joys of being poor.

One of the most controversial songs, Calma Pueblo, won best alternative song, with its lyrics that call the Vatican the largest mafia in the world.

The group also won producer of the year, best short-form music video and best tropical song for its ode to behaving badly, Vamo' A Portarnos Mal.

Calle 13 opened the show with an emotional rendition of its Hispanic anthem Latinoamerica before going on to win the prize for best urban music album, best urban song, song of the year and record of the year for Latinoamerica.

In many ways, they hogged the spotlight from the other nominees. Even Shakira, the Latin Recording Academy's person of the year, came home with only one award for best female pop vocal album after Calle 13 swept the show.
