MTV’s European Music Awards – Avril Lavigne and Muse scoop 2 awards
(showbizspy.com) - Earlier, we reported that British rockers Pete Doherty & Amy Winehouse would be appearing together at MTV's European Music Awards - that, apparently didn't happen.
However, Amy, a last minute addition to the line-up did sing, on her own - her hit single Back To Black, and scooped the Artist Choice Award - which is an award chosen by fellow musicians.
Avril Lavigne, who won the award for best solo artist said: "I'm so happy to be able to stand up here tonight and accept this award. It's an honor.
"It's an honor to have you guys all the way in Europe listening to my music. It's crazy."
Rapper Snoop Dogg hosted the event live from Munich, which also featured live performances from Mika, Avril Lavigne, My Chemical Romance and the Foo Fighters.
Recovering drug addict Pete Doherty also performed with his band Babyshambles - When Pete was asked to explain his band's punctuality for rehearsals, he told reporters on the red carpet: "It's a whole turnaround in the Babyshambles philosophy."
Justin Timberlake, who won two awards last year, led the field with four nominations but failed to scoop any gongs this year.
Linkin Park won the award for best band of 2007 and German rock band, Tokio Hotel, took the prize for best international act.
Actor Jared Leto's group, 30 Seconds to Mars, took home the rock out gong and French duo, Justice, won the video star award for their track D.A.N.C.E.
