LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Veteran rockers U2 and Steely Dan and country singer Faith Hill stole some of the Grammy spotlight Wednesday from Eminem, whose angry lyrics entangled the ceremonies in controversy.

Steely Dan, who won their first three Grammys, earned album of the year honors over Eminem’s ``The Marshall Mathers LP.″ Eminem won three rap music awards.

U2 won three awards, including the prestigious song and record of the year for ``Beautiful Day.″

``It’s a very unique emotion I’m feeling right now. I think it’s called humility,″ said U2′s Bono, who said fellow nominee Macy Gray and others should share the band’s award. ``I’m completely not used to it.″
