Colombian rocker and social activist Juanes took home five Latin Grammys last night, sweeping in all five categories in which he was nominated. His hit song, Me Enamora, won song of the year, record of the year and best short form music video.

MICHEL MARTIN, host:

Finally, more big news on the culture front: Colombian singer Juanes. He took over the Latin Grammys last night, winning five awards for work from his album "La Vida... Es un Ratico." That means "Life... Is a Moment." And his song "Me Enamora" won record of the year, song of the year, and best short-form music video. Here's a little taste.

(Soundbite of song "Me Enamora")

Mr. JUANES: (Singing in Spanish) Que divide nuestras vidas Hay tantas cosas que me gustan hoy de ti. Me enamora que me hables con tu boca. Me enamora que me eleves hasta el cielo. Me enamora que de mi sea tu alma sonadora. Esperanza de mis ojos, Sin ti, mi vida no tiene sentido. Sin ti, mi vida es como un remolino De cenizas que se van. Oh, oh, oh...

MARTIN: That's "Me Enamora" by Juanes. He picked up five Grammys last night at the Latin Grammy Awards. Congratulations.
