New York - At time of print, Bruce Springsteen captured three Grammys for his Sept. 11-inspired "The Rising," but it was the music of pop-jazz chanteuse Norah Jones that garnered seven awards Sunday, including song of the year for "Don't Know Why."
Jones won best pop vocal album and best female pop vocal performance and her album, "Come Away With Me," earned best engineered album and producer of the year honors for Arif Mardin.  Jones' version of "Don't Know Why" earned writer Jesse Harris a song of the year Grammy.
Springsteen was clearly a favorite of the crowd inside Madison Square Garden as the Grammys returned to New York for the first time in five years.  After Springsteen delivered a rousing performance of "The Rising" midway through the 45th annual awards ceremony, the crowd screamed, "Bruuuuce!!!!"
The Dixie Chicks, after a bitter legal battle with their label Sony, took best country album among their three Grammys.  The trio's multiplatinum "Home," a return to their country roots, was co-produced by member Natalie Maines' father, Lloyd.
The show opened with Dustin Hoffman - one in a revolving series of New York-based hosts - introducing lifetime achievement award winners Simon and Garfunkel.
Among the double winners were Eminem, Coldplay, India.Arie and Nelly.  Eminem's second Grammy came for best rap album, the third time he's won the category.
India.Arie, who was nominated for seven Grammys last year but lost them all, finally got her first two.
