Coldplay win big at World Music Awards 2008

If Coldplay didn’t get the MTV European Music Award, it doesn’t mean they don’t deserve it.

The British band was crowned the world’s top-selling act of 2008 at the World Music Awards (WMAs) in Monte Carlo, Monaco.

Their album Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends topped charts in the United States, Britain, Japan, Germany, France and elsewhere. The band was also named the WMA’s rock act of the year at an awards ceremony, although they were not there to accept it.

Alongside Coldplay, Leona Lewis became the night’s big winner.
