Christina Aguilera was too ill to attend today’s 2nd Annual Latin Grammy Awards, which took place at the Conga Room nightclub in Los Angeles. Christina won best female pop vocal album for her release, Mi Reflejo which Jimmy Smits accepted on her behalf. Smits said, “Unfortunately Christina’s got the flu. She’s at a hotel, like, a mile away and she’s got the flu. But she asked us to convey this message: ‘I’m sorry that I cannot be here in person. It’s an honor for me to receive this award,’ so says Christina, ‘and I would like to thank everyone at the Latin Recording Academy for their support.’ So, Christina, it’s waiting here for you. Well deserved.” No word if Aguilera was tested for anthrax in precaution to the symptoms.
