Coldplay - Coldplay Resigned To Losing To Adele At Brit Awards

Rockers Coldplay are resigned to losing out on the Best Album prize at the upcoming Brit Awards after witnessing Adele's 21 dominate this year's (12) prizegivings.
The Yellow hitmakers have been nominated for Mylo Xyloto, but they face tough competition from Adele, as well as Ed Sheeran (+), Florence and The MAChine (Ceremonials), and PJ Harvey (Let England Shake).
But they're convinced the soul star will win the top honour, especially after she swept the board with six trophies at Sunday night's (12Feb12) Grammys.
Frontman Chris Martin tells Bbc Radio 2, "Unless Adele somehow deletes her albums, I think we can come to the conclusion that (we won't win anything). I'm pretty sure of it."
But Martin insists the band is just honoured to be nominated, adding, "You can be one of those artists that don't really care about them or you can, like us, love it, and we're always so grateful to be included. It's a kind of Olympics for a band; it's nice to win a medal."
The Brit Awards will take place at London's O2 Arena next Tuesday (21Feb12).

I wish you would stop referring to Coldplay as the Yellow hitmakers. They are indeed hitmakers, they are not, however yellow despite their first hit.
