Coldplay And Duffy Up For Hat-trick Of Mtv Awards

by | 29 September 2008

Both Coldplay and Duffy have the chance to take home three prizes at the upcoming MTV Europe Music awards.

The two acts are both up for the album of the year and the 'most addictive track' awards while Coldplay are in the running for the act of 2008 prize, alongside Amy Winehouse, Britney Spears, Leona Lewis and Rihanna.

Duffy has a shot at the best new act award, though she faces stiff competition from US teen acts the Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus, pop-rockers OneRepublic and chart-topper Katy Perry.
