A disgruntled 50 CENT stormed the stage at last night's (08FEB04) Grammy AWARDS when he missed out on claiming the Best New Artist award.

The rapper appeared onstage as winners EVANESCENCE started their acceptance speech.

He prowled around them and then marched towards TV cameras, where he flashed the peace sign to music fans watching at home.

Evanescence star AMY LEE saw the funny side, saying, "We'd like to thank 50 Cent."

Despite a handful of nominations, 50 Cent went home empty handed, while Evanescence claimed two gongs - for Best New Artist and Best Hard Rock Performance for BRING ME TO LIFE.
