    Coldplay Miss Out On Best International Rock at MTV Latinamerica 2006 Awards

    Coldplay have missed out on Best International Rock Group to 'My Chemical Romance' at the 2006 MTV Latin American Awards, held on Thursday.


    Robbie Williams' bottom and a band that dresses like furry bunnies graced MTV's 2006 Latin America Music Awards, where reggaeton sensation Daddy Yankee won top prize for artiste of the year.

    MTV made a triumphant return to Mexico yesterday after Hurricane Wilma ruined last year's ceremony just hours before it was to begin on a pristine Caribbean beach. This year's ceremony is the first to take place outside Miami. "MTV finally understood that Miami is not Latin America," said presenter and actor Diego Luna as more than 10,000 attendees cheered.


    Britain's Robbie Williams, who won best international pop artiste, gave the audience an eye-full before performing Rock DJ when he pulled his pants down and mooned the audience.


    Daddy Yankee, who helped spread catchy reggaeton music - a fiery mix of reggae and hip hop - from dance floors in New York's Bronx to Venezuela's posh clubs, said his music was no short-lived trend.


    Colombia's Shakira went home with the tongue-shaped award for song of the year for Hips don't lie from her second English-language album, Oral Fixation Vol 2. Mexican singer and accordion player Julieta Venegas' six nominations turned into just a single win for best performer of the year.


    But Mexican indie act Panda won in three categories - best band, best alternative artist, and newcomer of the year.


    Mexican band Mana won video of the year and best rock artist plus a special award to honour their two decades in the music business.
