Coldplay have scooped two prizes at the Q Awards ceremony in London, including best album for Viva La Vida or Death To All Their Friends. Coldplay also won best act in the world today.
Picking up the best album prize, Chris Martin warned the crowd he was going to bore them, before launching into a rambling acceptance speech. At one point, he declared Coldplay were “the greatest band in the world”, before adding bashfully: “U2 are on holiday”.
Welsh star Duffy picked up best breakthrough, while Keane won best track for comeback song Spiralling. The music magazine also honoured veteran artists including Grace Jones, who was named Q idol, and Glen Campbell, winner of the legend award.
