R&B SINGER Beyonce Knowles won five Grammy Awards on Sunday but was prevented from making a clean sweep when English rock band Coldplay surprisingly won the coveted record of the year prize.
The top prizes were spread widely, with stroke-afflicted soul singer Luther Vandross winning for song of the year, hip-hop duo OutKast for album of the year and rock band Evanescence for best new artiste.
Vandross, who did not attend the ceremony but sent a recorded message that was played during a tribute segment, won four Grammys. His song of the year prize, which he shared with co-writer Richard Marx, was for Dance with My Father, the title track from his hit album.

Along with hip-hop duo OutKast, rapper Jay-Z and producer Pharrell Williams, Knowles had led the Grammy contenders with nominations in six categories. The 22-year-old frontwoman with R&B trio Destiny?s Child was lauded largely for her debut solo release, Dangerously in Love. She told reporters backstage that she was not disappointed about losing to Coldplay.
"I love that song, and they definitely deserved it. That song was just genius," Knowles said.
OutKast ended up with three awards, Jay-Z with two and Williams with one as part of producer of the year winners, the Neptunes. Bluegrass singer Alison Krauss also picked up three Grammys, taking her career total to 17 ? eighth on the all-time list of Grammy winners.
Amid the fallout from Janet Jackson?s breast-baring stunt at the Super Bowl last weekend, CBS broadcast the event with a five-minute time delay.
The network also insisted that Jackson and her Super Bowl partner-in-crime, Justin Timberlake, apologise on air as a condition for appearing as planned.
Timberlake obliged. Jackson, who has been scheduled to participate in the Vandross tribute, opted out of the event altogether.
Missy Elliott won the award for Best Female Rap Solo Performance for Work It.
Coldplay frontman Chris Martin dedicated the record of the year award to late country singer Johnny Cash and to leading Democratic presidential hopeful ?John Kerry, who hopefully will be your president one day.?
In an unexpected development, rock band Evanescence was named best new artiste ? to the chagrin of favoured fellow nominee 50 Cent, who briefly took to the stage while the band was accepting its award.
Former Evanescence member Ben Moody, when asked about the gangsta rapper?s impromptu appearance on stage, joked: "50 Cent is actually a former member of Evanescence."
Evanescence is no stranger to controversy, creating a storm in the Christian music community last year by disavowing its spiritual roots. Moody?s sudden departure last year, while the band was on tour, has created a rift with singer Amy Lee.
Evanescence also won the Grammy for best hard rock performance, which Lee told reporters was ?pretty killer.?
The White Stripes won for best alternative album (Elephant) and best rock song (Seven Nation Army). They also performed a rocking version of Seven Nation Army that morphed into Death Letter.
Knowles album Dangerously in Love was named best contemporary R&B album, while the title track was honoured for female R&B vocal performance. She and boyfriend Jay-Z shared Grammys for the song, Crazy in Love, which won for rap/sung collaboration and R&B song. Her other Grammy was for a duet with soul icon Vandross, The Closer I Get To You, which won for R&B performance by a duo or group with vocals.
Justin Timberlake with his Grammys for Best Pop Vocal Album for Justified and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for Cry Me A River.Vandross, who was stricken by a near-fatal stroke last April, won two other Grammys. Dance With my Father was named best R&B album and its title track best male R&B vocal performance.
Other double-winners included rapper Eminem, rock band White Stripes, jazz saxophonist Wayne Shorter, late singer/songwriter Warren Zevon and Timberlake.
OutKast?s infectious dance tune Hey Ya! won the Grammy for urban/alternative performance. Its album, Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, was also named best rap album. Reuters posted by asam | 3:12 PM
