Justin Timberlake jostled with American Idol contestants Carrie Underwood and Chris Daughtry for gongs at this year's American Music Awards.
Timberlake took trophies for best male pop-rock artist and best soul/R 'n' B album for his second solo release FutureSex/LoveSounds, but was overshadowed by contestants from the talent show.
2005 winner Underwood took home three awards, including favourite female country artist and best country album, while 2006 contestant Daughtry pipped Timberlake to the post in the favourite pop-rock album category.
Daughtry also won the breakthrough and adult contemporary artist awards and paid tribute to American Idol after his wins.
"The show didn't make me who I am," he said. "It just gave me a chance to show everybody else who I am."
Despite being on house arrest while awaiting trial on weapons charges, rapper TI took two prizes in the hip-hop category, winning best male artist and best album.
Disney phenomenon High School Musical 2 took the favourite soundtrack album award, while Akon and Rihanna were victorious in the favourite male and female soul/R 'n' B artist categories.
And former Destiny's Child star Beyonce Knowles took the international artist award, joining the illustrious company of previous winners Michael Jackson, Aerosmith and Rod Stewart.
"I'm so blessed to wake up every morning and do what I love. I'm so grateful, so honoured and so humbled by this award," she said afterwards.
