Alicia Cleans Up

Alicia Keys, a 21-year-old soul traditionalist whose single "Fallin"' dominated radio last summer, tied a Grammy record for a female artist with five awards Wednesday.

She shared the spotlight with a collection of Depression-era bluegrass music and a veteran Irish rock group whose music struck a new chord after Sept. 11.

Keys was named best new artist and "Fallin' " won song and rhythm 'n' blues song and female R&B vocal performance. Her debut disc, "Songs in A Minor" was judged best R&B album. Her Grammy sweep topped Lauryn Hill's five awards in 1999.

The traditional country soundtrack to "O Brother, Where Art Thou?," a surprise best seller despite being shunned by country radio, won album of the year - a category Keys was not nominated in.

U2, which opened the Grammy telecast with a stirring rendition of "Walk On," ended the show by winning record of the year for it. The band won four awards altogether.
