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.
