Winners of this year's NAACP Image Awards in music category have been announced during a live ceremony at Los Angeles' Shrine Auditorium on February 12. Jennifer Hudson was the one who won big at the annual event, collecting three trophies.

Jennifer claimed her first victory as Outstanding New Artist, beating down Anthony Davis, Jazmine Sullivan, Leona Lewis and Estelle. "This is where we come from," she said when taking the stage to pick up the trophy. "So it's always an honor to come home and feel welcome and to feel the love. I really cherish this and appreciate it."

Jennifer received her two other awards; Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration for her duet track "I'm His Only Woman" with Fantasia Barrino, and Outstanding Album for her self-titled debut effort. For those titles, she has successfully put aside Jordin Sparks, Ne-Yo and Kanye West among other big contenders.

Following Jennifer's domination was will.i.am, who bagged two prizes at the event. He got Outstanding Music Video for his "Yes We Can" video, which features fellow celebrities such as Kerry Washington, Olivia Wilde and Jonathan Schaech. The Black Eyed Peas' member also added another prize in Outstanding Song for the same single, which was recorded to celebrate Barack Obama's presidential victory.

Aside from Jennifer Hudson and will.i.am, Beyonce Knowles and Jamie Foxx have also been announced as the musicians scooping awards at the annual event honoring the best in television, movie, and literature. Beyonce got Outstanding Female Artist, while Jamie was named Outstanding Male Artist.

Anne, stop hatin on Jennifer. She has more talent than chris does and he hasn't been around long enough 2 get a damn thing from the NAACP. Jennifers voice is much better and stronger than his, at least she's won a Grammy for dreamgirls, she competed in American idol so yea she's come a lot further than chris has career wise. Chris is not even original he's always gotta be bitin somebody elses style. J hud is just doin her grown woman thang!

Bullshit. Chris Brown should've won Outstanding Male Artist! He was the obvious winner!! and what the hell has Jamie Foxx even done?? I have NEVER heard any of his songs on the radio, or heard of any of his songs period. this is such bullshit. and no air should've won the outstanding duo. i'm pissed and i'm starting to wonder whether Chris Brown didn't win those awards because of what happened recently?? If that's what happened, then NAACP is messed up and retarded. but i'm hoping that's not what happened. -.-
