Amy Winehouse, Kanye West Top List Of Winners At 2008 Grammys

Amy Winehouse and Kanye West were the big winners at Sunday's 50th annual Grammy Awards, each scoring multiple trophies.

But in what could be called the surprise of the night, Album of the Year honors went to Herbie Hancock's 'River: The Joni Letters'.

Winehouse, who was unable to get a visa to be at the awards due to her legal and drug problems, performed ''I'm No Good'' and ''Rehab'' via satellite from London.

She came close to sweeping every category in which she was nominated and won five Grammys, including Best New Artist, Best Pop Vocal Album (for Back to Black), and Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Vocal Performance.

While West, who had the most nominations (eight), picked up four trophies himself: Best Rap Solo Performance, Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group, Best Rap Song, and Best Rap Album.
