On January 20 2000 the Latin Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences announced that the inaugural Latin Grammy Awards were going to take place on September 15 2000 in Los Angeles and the awards ceremony would be broadcast in the United States by CBS, which will also distribute it to other countries.

Earning three nominations were Luis Miguel, along with La Ley. Ricky Martin earned for two nominations. Christina Aguilera, received a nod on the Latin side of the musical divide for the Spanish-language remake of "Genie in a Bottle" titled "Genio Atrapado".
