London, Feb 11 (ANI): British soul singer Amy Winehouse bagged the Song of the Year prize at the 50th annual Grammy Awards on Feb 10 in Los Angeles for her single “Rehab.”

In addition, the troubled singer also won the best new artist, best pop vocal album for Back To Black and best female pop vocal awards, reports The Sun.

Winehouse, who was not at the ceremony to pick up the award personally, was originally due to perform live at the show but was denied a US visa last week.

By the time US authorities approved her visa on Feb 8, her publicist said it was too late for the 24-year-old singer to travel to Los Angeles.

Instead, the singer performed and made an acceptance speech by satellite.

Kanye West scooped four Grammy Awards for best rap song, best rap album, best rap solo performance and best rap performance by a duo or group.

The hip-hop star used his acceptance speech for best rap album to pay tribute to his mother Donda, who died in November.

Bruce Springsteen won three, while the White Stripes, Justin Timberlake, Carrie Underwood and Mary J Blige were among the acts who picked up two awards.

The show opened with a duet between Alicia Keys and footage of the late Frank Sinatra singing Learnin’ the Blues.

Tina Turner returned to the stage for the first time in seven years to perform with Beyonce Knowles. (ANI)
