Video: Duffy, Kings of Leon Win, Coldplay Snubbed at Brit Awards


Sorry, Coldplay: The Brit Awards are just not that into you.

Although the English rockers scored three Grammys earlier this month, they walked away empty-handed at last night’s Brit Awards ceremony in London, despite being nominated for four statues, including Best British Group and Best Album.

Pop-soul songstress Duffy was the night’s big winner, taking home trophies for Best Album, Best British Female Solo Artist, and Best British Breakthrough Act. Kings of Leon snagged statues for Best International Album and Best International Group.

Best British Group honors went to recent Mercury Music Prize winners Elbow, while Kanye West and Katy Perry took home Best International Male and Best International Female, respectively. Perry was so shocked by the honor she puked.
