The Album of the Year title is awarded to Herbie Hancock's "River: The Joni Letter". This win from the jazz musician has snubbed the chance for Amy Winehouse to sweep all the six nominations she had gained. The British singer took her fifth winning by taking Record of the Year for "Rehab".

The same album from Hancock had earlier won Best Contemporary Jazz Album. He was also nominated for Best Jazz Instrumental Solo for "Both Sides Now" but lost it to Michael Bracker's "Anagram".

Meanwhile, Winehouse who attends the ceremony via Satellite from London, is officially named the biggest winner in the awards event with five nods, which are Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best New Artist, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and Best Pop Vocal Album. Following behind her is the biggest nominee, Kanye West, who goes home with four kudos.

The 50th Grammy Awards was held on February 10 from Los Angeles' Staples Center. It was highlighted with performances from Alicia Keys, Aretha Franklin, Mary J. Blige, Kanye West, Josh Groban and many more.
