Luther + 50 Cent Double Up At The Amas

R+B legend LUTHER VANDROSS and rap superstar 50 CENT were the big victors at last night's (16NOV03) AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS in Los Angeles by being the only double prize winners.

Vandross, who is recovering from a near-fatal stroke, claimed the Favourite R+B Album and Male Artist awards and his gongs were accepted by his mother MARY. 50 Cent won the night's Favourite Rap/Hip-Hop Male Artist and Album prizes.

Meanwhile, it was a good night for country's top couple FAITH HILL and TIM McGRAW - who both won gongs for Favourite Country Female and Male Artists - and LINKIN PARK served up one of the big shocks of the night by beating hot favourites METALLICA and COLDPLAY to the Favourite Alternative Artist.

Music veterans also proved they've still got what it takes, with the reunited FLEETWOOD MAC claiming the night's Favourite Pop/Rock Band, Duo or Group award. Country legends ALABAMA collected their record-making 23rd AMA by taking home this year's (03) Favourite Country Band, Duo or Group and THE ISLEY BROTHERS bagged the Favourite Soul/R+B Band, Duo or Group honour.
