Juanes nominated for MTV Europe awards

Juanes and two other top Colombian artists have been nominated for the 2012 MTV Europe Music Awards to be held in Germany in November.

The famed Colombian artist Juanes was nominated in the category “Best Latin Artist” along with Bogota based rock band Don Tetto and female singer Naty Botero.

Don Tetto commented on his Twitter account that he was very happy to be nominated for the MTV Europe Awards for the second year.

Naty Botero also wrote on her account how thankful she was for the opportunity.

Other major artists such as Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, The Killers and One Direction have received nominations in a variety of categories.

The awards which will this year take place in Frankfurt are considered one of the most prestigious award events in the non-U.S. music industry and even though it is a European event, it is almost always dominated by American musicians.
