Calle 13 will head into the Latin Grammys as the odds-on favorite to be this year's big winners.

That's because the Puerto Rican duo notched ten nominations in categories such as “Album of the Year,” “Best Urban Song,” and “Best Urban Album.”

The stepbrothers René Pérez Joglar and Eduardo José Cabra Martínez, who presented for other categories, beamed as the nominations were announced Wednesday.

Other notable nominees include Shakira, Ricky Martin, Enrique Iglesias, Mr. Pauer, and Intocable.

The awards will be held on Nov. 10, 2011 at the Mandalay Bay Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
