    Coldplay early favourites at Brit Awards 2012, NRJ Music Awards voting, Paradise for Grammy nominees album

    brits20121.jpgColdplay and Adele have been named as early favourites to nab the major awards at this year's Brit Awards by bookmakers. Coldplay are favourites to win Best British group at 1/2, just behind are Kasabian, who are 4/1, then Chase & Status and Elbow who are both 7/1 and Arctic Monkeys, who are ranked at 8/1 to win. You can vote for Coldplay at the Brits website now!


    Meanwhile, Adele is the overwhelming favourite to win the award for Best Award for her monstrously successful second album '21', with William Hill giving her odds of 2/7 to take home the award. The 'Someone Like You' star's odds are far ahead of the other contenders, which are Florence & The Machine at 5/1, Coldplay, who are 7/1 to win for Mylo Xyloto, Mercury winner PJ Harvey, who has been given odds of 10/1 and Ed Sheeran, who is rated at 12/1 to win with his debut record '+'.


    Coldplay have also been pre-nominated in the International Group / Duo of the Year category at this year's NRJ Music Awards, due to take place on January 28th in Cannes, France. In this category, Coldplay will be up against Black Eyed Peas, David Guetta feat. Usher and LMFAO. Each category at these awards had six pre-nominees which were whittled down to four for the awards voting. To vote for Coldplay in their category click here now.

    Also looking ahead to the Grammy Awards, where Coldplay have already been nominated three times, it has been announced that they will also be featured on the forthcoming 2012 Grammy nominees album. Coldplay will contribute the track Paradise to the compilation, which also features tracks by fellow Grammy nominees Katy Perry ("Firework"), Adele ("Rolling In the Deep"), Foster the People ("Pumped Up Kicks"), Mumford and Sons ("The Cave"), Maroon 5 ("Moves Like Jagger" Featuring Christina Aguilera), and Foo Fighters ("Walk").


    The album will be released on Universal Republic on January 24, with a portion of sales benefitting the Grammy Foundation and MusicCares Foundation. The ceremony will take place in Los Angeles on Sunday 12 February. (Mylo Xyloto was not eligible for any awards, as it was released after the cut-off date of 30 September 2011.) Coldplay's nominations are as follows:


    - Best Pop Duo/Group Performance (for Paradise)

    - Best Rock Performance (for Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall)

    - Best Rock Song for (Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall)
