BRITS '08 in Review

Since the Brit Awards are already over (remember the time difference), I'm sure they're partying it up in London—rockstar style, of course.

The Foo Fighters, who rocked Madison Square Garden last night (stay tuned for coverage of last night's festivities), swept the international awards taking Best International Group and Album.

Old school boy group Take That still knows how to bring it to the new school crowd by taking two of the three awards voted by the people—British Single and British Live Act.

Mika picked up the third people's choice award, better known as British Breakthrough Act. It must be that infectious falsetto.

The Arctic Monkeys took British Group and British Album (big surprise...). Who could say no to the catchy Teddy Picker?

Sir Paul
was honored with the Oustanding Achievement in Music Award.

Kate Nash and Mark Ronson took the British Solo Artist nods. Mark gave a performance for the Brit history books by bringing a bunch of his friends onstage for one kick ass collab.

The Klaxons didn't fail to deliver on their big surprise—Rihanna. I don't think I need to let you know what she sang.

And Leona may not have picked up a statue, but we all still love her.
