Bon Jovi was hailed at German's glitzy award show, Bambi Awards, for their work on 'Lost Highway'.
The award that is dubbed the biggest media event in Germany, Bamby Awards, invited international act Bon Jovi to receive their music appreciation prize this year.
Bon Jovi, as announced earlier this month, was given the 'Music International' category because of "their first class songwriting on their current album 'Lost Highway'." The rock band took the honor after giving live performance of their hit 'Till We Ain't Strangers Anymore'.
R'n'B singer Rihanna also took the stage to give a performance. Other notable musicians who attended the event was Sarah Brightman and Andrea Bocelli.
The award-handing ceremony took place in Dusseldorf, Germany on Thursday, November 2007. It also honors other fields beside entertainment, such as sports, politics and economy. The show was aired live on German television, ARD.
