AMY WINEHOUSE has been nominated for six awards at next year’s 50th Grammy ceremony.
That’s fewer than Kanye West, who managed eight nominations for the top American music prizes, but it puts the troubled torch singer ahead of some big names like Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z and the Foo Fighters, who have to make do with five apeice.
“I’m honored to have my music recognized with these nominations,” said Winehouse. “This is a true validation from people I respect and admire.”
The awards she’s nominated for are: album of the Year (for Back to Black), Record of the Year (Rehab), Song of the Year (Rehab), Best New Artist, Best Pop Vocal Album (Back to Black), and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance (Rehab).
The 50th Grammy Awards take place on 10 February, 2008 in Los Angeles.
