British Male Solo
James Morrison

British Female Solo
MIA

British Breakthrough Act
The Ting Tings - I hate them more than anything in the world but I have this feeling some plonker out there thinks they're the best thing since sliced bread!

British Group
Take That - Although I'd rather Elbow got it

British Live Act
Coldplay

British Single
Coldplay: Viva La Vida - Love that song!

British Album
The Ting Tings: We Started Nothing - again I'd rather Elbow got this one. I picked up their album for 50p at Woolies on the day they were closing down & it was a wise "investment" (lol) - good album

International Album
MGMT: Oracular Spectacular - although I'm really liking the new stuff by Kings of Leon

International Male Solo
Kanye West

International Female Solo
Katy Perry

International Group
Kings Of Leon
