Amy Winehouse & Madonna Win Songwriting Awards

amy winehouse picture Amy Winehouse and Madonna have scooped prestigious Ivor Novello songwriting awards at a London ceremony.

British soul diva Winehouse won best contemporary song for her song ‘Rehab’, while Madonna’s ‘Sorry’ was named international hit of the year.

The Arctic Monkeys also scooped a trophy. They won the best album award for ‘Whatever People Say I Am That's What I'm Not’.

Joking about her reported alcohol issues, Amy said: "Thank you all very much. I didn't even have time to get drunk; I've only been here about 15 minutes."

Pop superstar Sir Elton John was another winner. He scooped an award as co-writer of the Scissor Sisters’ hit ‘I Don’t Feel Like Dancing’, which was named most performed work.

"This is really special. I want to give a big shout out and thank you to Elton,” Jake Shears of the band said.

"About 18 months ago, I was so depressed and Elton was doing nothing short of tap dancing and pulling my eyeballs out to make me feel better. Elton came into the studio and we wrote the song.

"This is a great day to feel not just like a colleague of Elton's but to call him a friend too.”
