Leona Lewis earned a nomination for the first ever MTV Video Music Award for âBest UK Videoâ this week joining Duffy, The Ting Tings, Coldplay and Estelle who are also nominated. In an unprecedented move, MTV has clearly taken notice of what some may call 2008’s âBritish Invasion,â by creating a âBest UK Videoâ category, especially since the network hosts the MTV Europe Music Awards in November. British acts have had a highly successful run in the North America this year. Leona Lewis and Estelle alone have topped the Billboard charts for weeks at a time with their respective hits âBleeding Loveâ and âAmerican Boy.â Lewisâ debut album âSpiritâ earned her the distinction of becoming the first British female solo artist in over 20 years to top the Billboard 200 and itâs respective pop charts. The album has since sold well over 2 million copies. Estelle, who is also signed to John Legendâs Homeschool label, recently earned a nomination for Britainâs esteemed Mercury Prize. Lewis and Estelle go âhead to headâ at the MTV Video Music Awards, airing Live on MTV September 7th.
