Outkast are continuing to dominate prize-giving ceremonies across the world, scooping three honours at the MTV EUROPE MUSIC AWARDS in Rome last night (18NOV04).
The hip-hop outfit walked away with Best Group, and Best Video and Best Song for HEY YA! - adding to the four gongs they won at the American MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS in August (04) and three GRAMMYS in February (04).
OutKast star ANDRE 3000 - who attended the event without his collaborator BIG BOI - devoted the duo's victories to their loyal fans: "I want to say thank you to all the fans for supporting OutKast throughout the years."
British band Muse also had two reasons to celebrate - they won the Best Alternative Act and Best UK + Ireland Act prizes.
The grateful STAN star - who opened the show with a crowd-pleasing performance of his latest solo hit JUST LOSE IT - told the audience, "D12 finally won an award, thank you very much."
