There was trouble at the 2003 Radio Music Awards in Las Vegas on Monday night, but not at the ceremony itself.
Whilst artists including Justin Timberlake, 50 Cent, Nelly and Jewel were picking up their gongs, burglars were breaking into the nearby Aladdin Hotel, where a number of artists were staying. Nelly and Michelle Branch were among the victims of the burglaries, with the plaster-faced rapper losing around $1 million worth of jewellery. Branch reported a personal computer as stolen. Local police are still investigating.
The Radio Music Awards recognise the artists responsible for the most-played songs on US radio. Other winners included Avril Lavigne, Tim McGraw and John Mayer.
