The list of artists in the running for Brit awards this year has been announced, and this year it’s all about Coldplay and Duffy – both are up for four awards each.
Duffy is up for Best British Breakthrough Act, Best British Single for Mercy and Best British Album for Rockferry, which was the best selling British album of 2008. She goes head to head with Estelle and MIA for Best Female Solo Artist.
The newly ‘gayed up’ Killers are up against AC/DC, Kings of Leon and MGMT for Best International Album.
The Brits will be held at London’s Earls Court on February 18 and will be co-hosted by none other than multi-Brit award winner Kylie Minogue. Performers on the night will include Duffy, Girls Aloud and the Pet Shop Boys, who will take out the Outstanding Contribution award this year.
Now that’s a pretty gay line up.
The Ting Tings are in the running for Best British Album and Best British Breakthrough Act. Australia’s Gabriella Cilmi has some stiff competition – she’s up against Katy Perry, Pink, Beyonce and Santogold for Best International Female Solo Artist.
