(Sunday, February 10, 2008, 8:00-11:30 p.m. EST) — Amy Winehouse, the troubled British soul singer with the darkly self-referential hit “Rehab,” failed to attend Sunday’s 50th Annual Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles in person tonight, but she proved a dominating figure nonetheless, picking up five trophies as voters kept her in a tight competition with the rap star Kanye West.

Both of them, however, were left on the sidelines for the night’s final prize, album of the year, which went to the jazz mainstay Herbie Hancock.

Winehouse won awards in two of the three most prestigious categories, for the writing and recording of the single “Rehab,” about her refusal to seek treatment for substance abuse. She performed on the program via satellite from London, where her tabloid-ready lifestyle recently prompted her to enter a rehabilitation center.
