Travis, Robbie Williams Top Brit Awards

British music awards also recognize international artists Beck, Macy Gray in London ceremony.

Pop-rockers Travis, flamboyant singer Robbie Williams and newcomer Macy Gray each came away with two awards at Friday's Brit Awards 2000. Williams' "She's the One" won Best British Single and Best British Video, while Travis scored Best British Group and, for The Man Who?, Best British Album. Gray, beaten by Christina Aguilera at the Feb. 23 Grammys, grabbed two awards, for Best Female Artist and Best Newcomer. The London ceremony, slightly delayed because of an injury to one of rapper Will Smith's dancers, began with a pounding rendition of "We Will Rock You," performed by members of glam-band Queen, pop group 5ive and 30 drummers. Though the ceremony brought the Spice Girls and former member Geri Halliwell into the same building, they didn't share the stage. Halliwell performed separately, and she did not join them when they received the Outstanding Contribution to British Music award.
