Music fans in France have voted their particular favorites at this year's NRJ Music Awards. Britney Spears, Jonas Brothers, Katy Perry, Rihanna and The Pussycat Dolls among others were those receiving awards at the gala ceremony taking place on January 17 in Cannes.
Claiming double victory, Britney was named as International Female Artist of the Year, beating down Christina Aguilera, Pink, Rihanna and Beyonce Knowles. She also scooped another prize for Music Video of the Year, putting aside other music videos coming from Fall Out Boy, Martin Solveig, Zaho and Stanislas et Calogero.
The Jonas boys meanwhile were honored as International Revelation of the Year. Kevin Jonas, Joe Jonas and Nick Jonas won over other contenders such as Amy Macdonald, Duffy, Katy and Leona Lewis.
Though losing in the category of International Revelation of the Year, Katy managed to walk out with a prize for International Album of the Year. However, she was mistakenly handed an award for International Song of the Year, which was supposed to be picked up by Rihanna for her hit single "Disturbia". In regard of the error, host Nikos Aliagas later cited it happened due to a problem in counting the public's vote.
