It's the Latin Grammys tonight...

And one of the nominees is 8-year-old reggaetonero Miguelito who takes the genre to somewhere beyond self-parody. The phenomenon started when record company execs realised that Latin American kids, and not just the ones with tweezed eyebrows, were learning the lyrics of stars like Don Omar and Daddy Yankee by heart. When a competition was organised to find the best of these mimics, they then discovered that the resulting audience wasn't exactly dominated by the under-18s.
