Kaiser Chiefs and James Blunt dominate Brit Awards


The Kaiser Chiefs and James Blunt were the big winners at the Brit Awards, the UK’s biggest music awards. The indie quartet were named best British Group, Best British Rock Act and Best British Live Act. Former Army captain, James Blunt, walked off with the Best British Male and Best Pop Act awards. Madonna picked up the Best International Female award. She was also on hand to present the Best British Album and Single awards to Coldplay, who announced they are splitting up.

However, singer Chris Martin hinted it was only temporary: “People are fed up with us, and so are we,” he said. “You won’t see us at one of these for many, many years,” he added. Other winners included KT Tunstall who grabbed Best British Female and Lemar for Best British Urban Act, while Kanye West won Best International Male. Paul Weller was also honoured for an Outstanding Contribution to Music.
