AMSTERDAM — Dutch pop singer Marco Borsato won three Edison Dutch music awards, including best male singer, while Trijntje Oosterhuis took out the best female singer category at a special presentation ceremony in Amsterdam on Monday night.

Besides the best singer category, Borsato was also honoured at the Pepsi Stage for his DVD-only release "Zien".

The prize for best band went to Within temptation, while rap duo Lange Frans & Baas B. were chosen as best newcomer.

DJ Tiësto won the dance category and Wende Snijders was judged to have performed best in the cabaret category. The best single, Holiday in Spain, was made by Blöf and the Counting Crows.

In the international section, a noteworthy number of débutantes won awards, including Joss Stone (best female singer), Jamie Cullum (best singer), Maroon 5 (best band) and Keane (best newcomer).

Other foreign winners were Rammstein (alternative) and Angie Stone (r&b/hiphop), news service NOS reported.

Dutch band De Dijk and international act Phil Collins were awarded Edisons for their entire body of work, the highest honour awarded by the Edison Foundation.

Edison awards have been presented since 1960, making it the oldest music prize in the Netherlands. They are comparable to the US Grammy, the German Echo or the British Brit awards.

Public broadcaster TROS will televise the Dutch awards ceremony on 2 March.
