LOS ANGELES, Feb. 11 (UPI) -- British singer Amy Winehouse on Sunday night won five of the six Grammy Awards for which she was nominated in Los Angeles.

Winehouse has been in rehab since last month and didn't get her visa to attend the 50th Grammy Awards telecast in time to make travel plans. She performed and accepted an award live by satellite from Riverside Studios in London -- where she took the stage wearing a black minidress, heels and her signature brunette beehive, adorned with flowers for the occasion, and sang "You Know I'm No Good" and "Rehab."

Through it all, she smiled, danced and seemed focused on her performance. Afterward, she received a standing ovation from the crowd in the studio.

Upon hearing she won the Record of the Year award shortly after her set, Winehouse said: "Thank you to everyone at Island Records ... To my mom and dad. For my (husband) Blake. My Blake incarcerated. And for London. This is for London!"
