Music Junkie Digest: Take That Win A Brit, Ace Of Base Win Our Poll

The Brit Awards were held tonight, and Take That won Best Single for "Patience." They won in the same category 10 years ago.

Both The Killers and Arctic Monkeys won two awards each, while Amy Winehouse was named the Best Female British Act.

The Killers took home Brits for International Group and International Album. Meanwhile, their third single of Sam's Town, "Read My Mind," is now available as an EP of remixes from U.S. iTunes. Included is the "Pet Shop Boys Stars Are Blazing Mix," which has the usual swarthy Neil Tennant backing vocals. Here in the States we just had the Grammys, and after their five wins, the Dixie Chicks have the top downloaded single and album at iTunes.

On the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart this week, Fall Out Boy debuted at #1 with Infinity On High, while Ashley Tisdale's Headstrong is at #5.

And finally, it's time for the results of last week's "most deserving of a pop comeback" poll, where Ace Of Base took top honors with 28 votes!

While it's highly unlikely the Base will be back this year with a new album, they've been recording one for awhile, and word is it'll be out next year. The last set by the legendary Swedes, Da Capo, came out in 2002. Let's hope their next one is released in more territories, including the U.S.

All in all, there were 76 votes in the poll, and here's how the runner-ups scored:

2. Whitney Houston (19 votes)
3. Britney Spears (14)
4. Darren Hayes (11)
5. Gareth Gates (4)

    The Brits last night were very anti-climatic. The Killers, Muse, and Amy Winehouse were all deserving of their awards but the performances and "special guests" were pretty poor.

    Hey, at least Lily Allen didn't win anything I suppose, that's a highlight in itself!

    Amy Winehouse's "Rehab" is pretty catchy, and I like that she looks like Ludicrous in drag. That alone deserves some kind of award.

    The PSB/ Killers mix is, well... too little, too late.
