Leona Lewis is fast becoming a gay favourite in America after refusing to let a broken down car ruin her night at a TV awards gala.
The Bleeding Love singer faced a dilemma on her way to the first NewNowNext Awards show in New York on Monday (19May08) when her car broke down en route.
Quick-thinking Lewis hailed a cab and made her own way to the prize-giving, organised by bosses at gay TV network Logo.
She was rewarded for her efforts - Lewis picked up the Kylie Award as the Next International Crossover.
She beat Robyn, Sia and Duffy.
