LATEST: Pop star ASHLEE SIMPSON saved face at last night's (25OCT04) RADIO MUSIC AWARDS in Las Vegas, Nevada, by performing her new single AUTOBIOGRAPHY "absolutely live".

The singer looked foolish on Saturday's (23OCT04) live broadcast of Saturday Night Live in America when she started lipsynching to the wrong track and she was determined not to repeat her mistake.

Simpson was teased throughout the telecast of the awards show by hosts Carson Daly and Molly Sims but she did deliver a live performance - and won over fans, some of which had booed her earlier at the event.

The night was also a triumph for Usher, who picked up three awards, including the end-of-the-night's Cingular Best Artist honour, as voted for by fans at home.

And Beyonce Knowles, who opened the show with her Destiny's Child bandmates - performing their new single LOSE MY BREATH, was celebrating in style when she picked up Artist of The Year honours in the Top 40 Radio category. She dedicated the honour to her five-day old nephew DANIEL.

Meanwhile, Janet Jackson baffled fans when she dedicated her Legend Award to a 12-year-old boy in the audience, who was spending the day with the pop superstar thanks to the charity MAKE-A-WISH FOUNDATION.
