Rockers Molotov and singer Natalia Lafourcade (corr) stole the show at last night's (23OCT03) MTV LATIN AWARDS by winning four and three gongs respectively.

Molotov claimed prizes in the Best Group or Duo, Best Mexican Artist, Best Alternative Artist and Video If The Year categories, while newcomer Lafourcade took home Best Solo Artist, Best New Mexican Act and Pop Artist of The Year honours.

Colombian rocker Juanes also added to his 2004 awards haul by picking up Artist of The Year and Best Rock Artist prizes.

Other highlights in the second annual MTV awards show, held in Miami Beach, Florida, include British group Coldplay picking up the Best International Rock Artist gong and Evanescence being honoured with the Best New International Artist.

Molotov's winning video FRIJOLERO (corr) was a successful choice for Video of The Year as it deals with the racism suffered by immigrants in America. The video features animated caricatures of PRESIDENT George W Bush and Mexican leader VICENTE Fox.
