French mistakenly give Katey Perry, Rihanna’s award for ‘International Song of the Year’

Definitely egg on the face of the NRJ Music Awards commitee. Don’t be expecting her to sing at any of your future events anytime soon. But something tells me they will find a way to suck up to her in the next day or two. Maybe they let them both share the award.

picture-122CANNES, France (AFP) – US pop star Kate Perry was given the international song of the year award for “I Kissed a Girl” at a French music award, but it turns out her song wasn’t the best after all.

The host of the NRJ Music Award in the Riviera resort of Cannes announced at the end of the show Saturday that there had been a mistake in vote-counting and that Perry was not the winner.

The award instead went to Barbados-born singer Rihanna for “Disturbia.”

The trophies were handed out based on results of audience votes on NRJ’s website in the weeks leading up to the awards ceremony.

Perry, who had stepped up to the podium to pick up the award for international song of the year, did however win in another category — best international album for “One of the Boys”.

The international female artist of the year award went to Britney Spears who was not present to receive the honour. The Pussycat Dolls won for best international group and Enrique Iglesias was named top international male artist.
