Also honoured at the Kodak Theatre event in Hollywood were Steve Miller and Lionel Richie, who were handed the ASCAP Golden Note Award, and newcomer Sara Bareilles, who received ASCAP's Vanguard Award.
Awards were also presented to the songwriters and publishers of ASCAP's most performed pop songs of 2007.
Fergie's Big Girls Don't Cry and Gwen Stefani's The Sweet Escape tied for the Best Song prize and Fergie was also on hand to pick up Pop Awards for her hits Glamorous and Fergalicious.
EMI Music Publishing was named Publisher Of The Year for their 21 award-winning songs. It was the sixth consecutive win for EMI bosses, who have dominated the Pop Music Awards in the ceremony's 25-year history.
