Brit Awards 2011 - winners include Arcade Fire and Justin Bieber

A couple of nights after their surprise triumph at the 2011 Grammy Awards by winning of the top award Album of the Year, Arcade Fire continued their hot streak by winning two more prizes at the 2011 Brit Awards in London. They took Best International Group and Best International Album for their release The Suburbs. Their competition included acts such as the Black Eyed Peas, Kings of Leon, and Vampire Weekend.

Fellow Canadian Justin Bieber bounced back from being shut out at the Grammys to capture the award for International Breakthrough Act.

British rapper Tinie Tempah (Patrick Okogwu) also won two awards. He claimed the Best Single for Pass Out and was also named British Breakthrough Act. Having reunited seventeen years after breaking up, the boy-band Take That won the honour for Best British Group.

The other international award winners were Rihanna (Best International Female) and Cee Lo Green (Best International Male).
