    I was asking myself this question. Could a Latin album (non-english recording, spanish or portuguese recording) be nominated for AOTY at the grammys, even if the Latin Grammy for AOTY exists? Could an album be nominated for both?

    LATIN FIELD
    Latin Pop Album
    Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album
    Regional Mexican Music Album
    (including Tejano)
    Tropical Latin Album 

    The same question, could a latin artist be nominated for Best New Artist at the grammy and latin grammys?

    Jon Secada was a Latin cross over artist nominated for Best New Artist in 1992

    If this counts, Livin La Vida Loca by Ricky Martin was nominated for Record and Song of the Year in 1999, which put the Latin explosion into the mainstream and he was nominated in the pop field
    Santana who also dominated that year with Supernatural and Smooth winning Album, Record and Song of the Year respectively, in addition to winning big in the rock categories

    What about music in any language other than English? Could it become a contender with the right push?
