Don Omar is also set for a big night at the prestigious ceremony, landing 18 nominations including Artist of the Year and Male Songs Artist of the Year.

Americans are the most ignorant race. It's sad to see how an ethnic group needs to put others down in order for them to feel better. We live in the 21st century people. wake up.

She is not going to know or appreciate it, so why not give it to someone who is alive and will benefit?  Besides, never heard of her..maybe coz she is a latin singer.
