I might be getting old, but after several failed attempts, I simply could not get past the first paragraph of the latest press release about this week’s Latin Grammy extravaganza. So I am hereby offering $5 pesos to those who manage to read the following sentence out loud and without suffering from a long-continued spasmodic contraction of the diaphragm. Here it is:
SANTA MONICA, Calif., Nov. 11 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — 12-time Latin GRAMMY(R) winner and current five-time nominee Juanes and five-time GRAMMY(R) winner John Legend will join together for a special performance, while three-time GRAMMY winner, Latin GRAMMY winner, current three-time nominee, and 2008 Latin Recording Academy Person of the Year Gloria Estefan will perform with six-time GRAMMY winner Jose Feliciano and 10-time GRAMMY and three-time Latin GRAMMY winner Carlos Santana on the 9th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards telecast, it was announced today by The Latin Recording Academy(R).
(You get a bonus point if you tell me, without re-reading of course, how many GRAMMYS and Latin GRAMMYS the above make up altogether.)
