Amy Winehouse wins Grammy for best new artist

Latest update : 2008-02-11

British soul singer Amy Winehouse won three awards, including the best new singer and the Song of the Year, for her single "Rehab" at the 50th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday in Los Angeles.

British soul singer Amy Winehouse won the Song of the Year prize at the 50th annual Grammy Awards Sunday in Los Angeles for her single "Rehab."
  
Winehouse, who led the evening's ceremony with four major awards, beat the songwriters behind "Before he Cheats," sung by Carrie Underwood, "Hey There Delilah," sung by the Plain White T's, "Like a Star" sung and written by Corinne Bailey Rae, and "Umbrella" performed by Rihanna.
  
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 Friday, her publicist said it was too late for the 24-year-old singer to travel to Los Angeles.
  
A star attraction of the awards having scooped nominations for record and album of the year, and having already won best pop vocal album, best female pop vocalist and best new artist, Winehouse was later due to perform via satellite.
