Chris Brown stole the show at Sunday's 2008 American Music Awards. He scooped three major gongs, trailed by Kanye West, Alicia Keys and Rihanna, who all walked away with double wins.

Brown won Favourite Male Artist in the Pop/Rock and Soul/R&B categories at the 36th Annual AMA's at Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre.

His rumoured-girlfriend Rihanna matched his wins - scoring victories in the same categories for Favourite Female Artist.

The With You hitmaker went on to beat Keys, Lil' Wayne, the Eagles and Coldplay for Artist of the Year.

West scored his first-ever AMAs victories in two first-time categories, beating mentor Jay-Z and southern rapper Lil' Wayne to win Favourite Rap/Hip-Hip Album for 2007's Graduation.

He also won Favourite Male Artist, but he offered the prestigious award to Lollipop hitmaker Lil' Wayne during his acceptance speech: "I really appreciate these two awards but I've got to say I'm a fan of music and so I've got my opinion and I want to give this award to Wayne for this year.
