Original 'Idol' Kelly Clarkson wins two at MTV Video Music Awards

UPI News Service, 08/29/2005 

With Diddy at the helm, it was no surprise the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards was hip-hop heavy, but rockers Green Day ruled the night taking home seven awards.

Green Day's album "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" earned the California punks seven out of eight awards during the ceremony broadcast live from Miami Sunday night, including Video of the Year, Best Rock Video, Best Direction, Best Editing, Best Cinematography and the coveted Viewer's Choice Award.

In accepting for Best Rock Video, vocalist Billie Joe Armstrong said, "It's great to know rock music still has a place on MTV."

Former "American Idol" winner Kelly Clarkson continued to build her rock cred by winning Best Female Video and Best Pop Video for her single, "Since U Been Gone."

Missy Elliott and Gwen Stefani had six nominations each and both picked up a pair of the moonmen trophies while the Gorillaz took awards for Breakthrough Video and Best Special Effects for "Feel Good Inc."
