The average rainfall in Las Vegas is about 4.5 inches a year, the equivalent of an average afternoon in Miami. However, that number doubles when Marc Anthony and Pitbull team up for a performance at the 12th Annual Latin Grammy Awards show.
During last night's telecast, those two bros performed their bilingual megahit "Rain Over Me" at Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay. To add authenticity, they were joined by several fine looking women who danced under prop rain. Wonder if J-Lo was watching? After all, what happens in Vegas, lingers on the Internet.
Check out the video and a list of Latin Grammy winners after the cut.
Some of the other highlights included Sofia Vergara presenting the 2011 Person of the Year award to fellow Colombian, Shakira, and Calle 13 cleaning house with nine awards. The Puerto Rican duo broke the record for most Grammys won and most Grammys won in a night. Check out Crossfade's interview Calle 13's Residente here.
It's also worth mentioning that after Pepe Aguilar's amazing performance of "Canción Mexicana," the crowd yelled, "¡Otra! ¡Otra!" They were demanding an encore.
