"Rehab" Helps Winehouse at the Grammy Awards Show

All-star duets and tributes to legendary performers were major parts of Sunday's 50th edition of the Grammy awards.

But the names of the award winners on music's biggest night were what most were waiting to hear.

The woman who finally did go to the rehab she resisted in song cleaned up at Sunday night's Grammys. 

Amy Winehouse won five awards, including best new artist, song and record of the year for "Rehab."

Amy Winehouse said "to my Mom and Dad and my Blake, my incarcerated Blake.  This is for London!"

Winehouse could not attend the Grammys in person. Her drug troubles cost her a Visa and forced her to perform via satellite from London.

The singer had a shot at a 6th grammy but in a stunning surprise, Herbie Hancock won best album for "River: The Joni Letters," only the second time a jazz album has won the honor.

Herbie Hancock said "this is a new day that proves the impossible can be made possible!"

The night's other winners included Kanye West. 

He paid tribute to his recently deceased mother, Donda West, as he took best rap album for "Graduation" one of four Grammys he won on the night.

Kanye West said "Mama, all I'm going to do is keep making you proud.  We run this!"

But on this night, it was a singer from London who carved her own place in Grammy history.

Had Winehouse also won album of the year, she would have joined only one other artist to have ever won record, song and album of the year, as well as best new artist.

The only person to do that?  Christopher Cross in 1981.
