This year's Latin GRAMMY Awards This year's Latin GRAMMY Awards process registered the highest number of submissions ever. However, due to low entries in Categories 22 and 39 - Best Grupero Album and Best Tropical Brazilian Roots Album - submissions in those categories were combined within other categories for consideration. Additionally, Categories 10 and 11 - Best Rock Solo Vocal Album and Best Rock Album By A Duo Or Group With Vocal - have been combined into Best Rock Album. As a result of these changes, the 11th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards will feature 46 out of 48 categories. The 11th Latin GRAMMY Awards will be supported on radio via Univision Radio (the official Spanish-language radio network of the Latin GRAMMY Awards), and highlighted on the Internet at www.latingrammy.com and www.latingrammy.univision.com, featuring video interviews and behind-the-scenes footage from today's nominations announcement.

A limited number of tickets to the 11th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards will be available for sale to the public starting Sept. 17, and may be purchased at the Mandalay Bay Events Center box office (877.632.7400; www.mandalaybay.com) or through Ticketmaster (www.ticketmaster.com).
