English rockers Kaiser Chiefs are leading the winners at tonight's (15FEB06) Brit Awards, picking up two trophies at the London bash.
Kaiser Chiefs opened the star-studded ceremony in the British capital's Earls Court venue with their megahit I PREDICT A RIOT, before going on to triumph over Franz Ferdinand, Hard-Fi, Kasabian and Oasis to win British Rock Act, as well as British Live Act.
Hip-hop star Kanye West, who arrived at the awards with ten bikini-clad beauties covered in gold, has been named International Male Solo Artist over Beck, Bruce Springsteen, Jack Johnson and John Legend.
Meanwhile, newcomers Arctic Monkeys have won British Breakthrough Act, but could not pick up the award due to a gig in Portsmouth, England.
The awards continues.
