I was looking forward to seeing Daddy Yankee on the list of nominees. Although his music is appreciated by non Spanish speakers, hopefully there are some Spanish speakers at the AMA's so that the full affect of his extreme talent is recognized. Let more people in America see his name Daddy Yankee alias Cangri Man!
