Oops, The Black Eyed Peas Don’t Win NRJ Award After All

January 24th, 2010 // Leave a Comment

Wow. This is the second year in a row in which the NRJ Awards mistakenly gave the wrong award to someone. The NRJ Music Awards 2010 took place last night at Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France.

US hip-hop band the Black Eyed Peas were mistakenly declared best international group at France’s top music awards before the prize was given to the real winners, the German band Tokio Hotel.

Choreographer Kamel Ouali, who was presenting the prizes late Saturday at the NRJ Awards in Cannes, told the audience the US band had won but a few minutes later returned to the stage to say he had made a mistake.

Last year Katy Perry was mistakenly given the trophy for best international song when it should have gone to Rihanna.

Pop sensations Ke$ha, Rihanna and Fergie were among those performers in attendance for the NRJ Music Awards in Cannes.

Unquestionably attractive, the three nonetheless have a history of failing to highlight their best qualities when walking red carpets. Ke$ha seems to occasionally go out of her way to look unattractive, the ever-alluring Rihanna sometimes goes overboard with stylistic shakeups and while Fergie tends to only flatter a portion of what could be a stunning total package.
