E meli Sande went two for two at Thursday's Ivor Novello Awards , which annually celebrate the best in British and Irish songwriting. 

Emeli's hit "Next To Me" was named Best Song Musically and Lyrically, as well as Most Performed Work -- the latter takes into account how many times the song has been heard on the radio and on TV.   Unfortunately, she wasn't at the London ceremony to pick up her trophies -- she was in California performing on the American Idol finale -- but she sure was thrilled, as she demonstrated on Twitter .

"If you followed me 2 years ago...you might remember me day dreaming about winning an Ivor!!" Emeli tweeted. "Wish I could have been there, that would have been one excited speech!"  She called the honor "the best news."

Meanwhile, Calvin Harris, the man behind Rihanna 's "Diamonds," the Florence Welch collaboration "Sweet Nothings" and his own "Feel So Close," was named Songwriter of the Year at the ceremony. 

According to the BBC , the Scottish songwriter and producer called the honor " easily the greatest achievement of my entire life," adding, "I can't believe I was even let in the door of this whole ceremony.  It feels like I shouldn't be here."
