LOS ANGELES — Spanish singer Alejandro Sanz won two awards at the Latin Grammy awards - but fellow Spaniard Bebe, nominated in five categories, only won one prize.

The singer, whose music fuses punk and flamenco, was named best new artist but lost out in the album of the year and song of the year categories.

Sanz, who won four trophies last year, picked up awards for song of the year and record of the year.

He said: "I think that all those who were nominated deserve it more than I do, and many who weren't nominated." 

"I dedicate it to all of them who inspired me to do music."

The Latin Grammy awards were broadcast in Spanish for the first time.

The show was broadcast on Spanish-language network Univision.

The first Latin Grammy awards took place in 2000, when singers Ricky Martin, Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony and Enrique Iglesias had hits in both the Latin American and mainstream US charts.

Awards were presented in a total of 43 categories.
