Mumford & Sons, The Black Keys on top at 2013 Brit Awards


Mumford & Sons and The Black Keys won the Best British and Best International Group gongs at last night’s (February 20th) Brit Awards ceremony in London.

Unsurprisingly, Emeli Sande‘s ‘Our Version Of Events‘, the UK’s biggest selling record of 2012, won the British Album prize, and Coldplay were named Best Live Act ahead of The Rolling Stones, Muse and The Vaccines.

Elsewhere, the Best International Male and Female awards were taken home by Frank Ocean and Lana Del Rey respectively, while the award hastily arranged to ensure One Direction turned up went to One Direction.
