Kings Of Leon awarded Best International Album at the BRITs

The Followill's do the double

Kings Of Leon have taken home the Best International Album award at the BRIT Awards 2009 tonight (February 18).

It was the band’s second award of the night, as they had already picked up the Best International Group gong. After being presented with the trophy by boxer Joe Calzaghe, a beaming Caleb Followill joked that it was England that made the band.

“If it weren’t for England, Kings Of Leon wouldn’t be a band right now,” he said. “You created Kings Of Leon, and good luck getting rid of us!”

The band then thanked their record company and family.

The acts nominated for Best International Album were::

AC/DC – ‘Black Ice’

Fleet Foxes – ‘Fleet Foxes’

The Killers – ‘Day And Age’

Kings of Leon – ‘Only By The Night’

MGMT – ‘Oracular Spectacular’
