LAS VEGAS - Calle 13 won album of the year at the Latin Grammy Awards, earning the top prize after a record-breaking night that saw the Puerto Rican hip-hop duo receive 19 awards overall.

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

Performers from nearly 100 nations celebrated Spanish pop, rock, salsa, rap and country during the three-hour show Thursday at the Mandalay Bay Events Center on the Las Vegas Strip.

Crossover stars Shakira, Pitbull, Usher and Marc Anthony were among the dozens of international pop stars who shared the stage.
