Adele and Winehouse win accolades

Adele and the late Amy Winehouse led an early British charge at this year's sombre Grammy Awards, which have been dampened by the shock death of singing star Whitney Houston.

Adele captured two of her six possible Grammys, including best pop vocal album for 21, at the pre-telecast ceremony which came just 24 hours after the troubled 48-year-old Houston was discovered in a bathtub at her Los Angeles hotel.

Meanwhile, Mitch and Janis Winehouse, the parents of the British singer Amy who died last year at the age of 27 following a battle with drugs and alcohol, were invited on stage to jointly accept a posthumous award on her behalf.

The gong for best pop performance by a duo or group was awarded for Winehouse's duet with Tony Bennett on the single Body and Soul.

"We shouldn't be here. Our darling daughter should be here. These are the cards that we're dealt," said Mitch after he was called on stage by Bennett.

Paying tribute to his daughter and Houston as well as Etta James who died earlier this year, he added: "Long live Whitney Houston, long live Amy Winehouse, Long live Etta James. There's a beautiful girl band up in heaven."

British singer/songwriter Corinne Bailey Rae also picked up a Grammy for best R&B performance as the night kicked off.

The televised segment of the 54th annual awards opened with a prayer and standing ovation to the singer, who herself won a clutch of six prestigious Recording Academy gongs over a turbulent career marred by spells of drug addiction.

Host LL Cool J said: "There is no way around this. We've had a death in our family so at least for me, the only thing that seems right is to start with a prayer for our fallen sister Whitney Houston."
