    Brit Awards Preview: Coldplay Tipped to be Big Winners

    brits.jpgThe Brit Awards 2009 - ITV1, 8pm


    The Brit Awards ceremony is rarely dull but this year’s effort has plenty of work to do to rival previous ones, report the Times Online. The presenting team of Kylie Minogue with Gavin and Stacey’s Mathew Horne and James Corden should provide the requisite mix of glamour and humour, while the Pet Shop Boys are promising a spectacular performance to celebrate already being chosen as the winners in the Outstanding Contribution to Music category.


    Coldplay and Duffy look to be the big winners, both having been nominated four times, though Coldplay will do well to pick up the Best British Group award as they face stiff competition from Radiohead and Take That. Also performing on the night are Estelle, who joins forces with the Ting Tings for a unique collaboration, Girls Aloud, Duffy, Coldplay, Take That and the mighty U2, who will be performing their new single Get On Your Boots.

    Following six rounds of daily voting, Coldplay's single Viva La Vida has made it to the Brits 2009 shortlist to appear at the awards ceremony this coming Wednesday. However, the work doesn't finish there. This just in from Anchorman:


    It's been announced tonight that Viva La Vida has made the final five for the Best British Single at the Brits. Thanks so much for all of your votes which helped to get it there.
