The big names were all out in force but the XIII Annual Latin Grammy Awards Thursday at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas was a celebration of the lesser known and the newcomers such as the pop rock duo Jesse & Joy, singer and songwriter Carla Morrison, and 3BallMTY (read Tribal Monterrey), a DJ-anchored group that created its own style they call tribal guarachoso.

Colombian singer and songwriter won Album of the Year and Best Long Form Music Video for MTV Unplugged, a work produced by Dominican singer, songwriter and producer Juan Luis Guerra. With it he has won 19 Latin Grammys, now matching the success of Calle 13.

Guerra, a 12-time Latin Grammy winner, entered the night with six nominations and won two.

But still, it was the duo Jesse & Joy, which won Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Contemporary Pop Vocal Album and Best Short Form Music Video. The Mexican singer and songwriter Carla Morrison, who won for Best Alternative Music Album and Best Alternative Song, and 3BallMTY, which won as the Best New Artist, suggest a coming wave in Latin Music.

There were forty-seven Latin Grammys awarded Thursday.
