Coldplay won the song of the year award at the 51st Grammys on Sunday for their hit "Viva La Vida."
It was the second award of the evening for the group after they had earlier picked up the best pop performance by a duo or group for the same track. "Viva La Vida" -- taken from the album of the same name -- was Coldplay's first US number one single. "Thank you and sorry for blatantly recycling the Sergeant Pepper album," Coldplay drummer Will Champion said after collecting the award, in comments directed at Beatles legend Paul McCartney, sitting in the audience. Coldplay had earlier warmed up the awards show with a live performance of "Viva La Vida," appearing alongside Jay-Z at the Staples Center.
The band is also hoping to snaffle Grammys in the record of the year and the coveted album of the year awards revealed later today.
