Eminem was also named best hiphop artist.
Ricky Martin, making his debut performance at the music "Oscars," won the award for best male artist, beating Robbie Williams, Eminem, Ronan Keating, and Sisqo.
The award for best group went to the Backstreet Boys, who said when accepting their award: "We beg you not to have a recount," referring to the U.S. presidential elections.
Red Hot Chilli Peppers won the best rock group title, with Blink 182 scoring the best new act award and All Saints winning best pop award.
Lopez, who premiered the first single from her forthcoming album live at the awards, won the award for best R&B.

Nominated for four awards, he managed to win only one -- for best song.
Irish rock group U2, Backstreet Boys, Bomfunk MC's, Guano Apes, and The Spice Girls, performed. Moby took to the stage shortly before he won the award for best video.
The "Free Your Mind" humanitarian award was given to Serbian student activist group for their resistance to the regime of former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic.
