Kylie Minogue scooped two gongs at this year's BT Digital Music Awards, which took place at the Roundhouse in London.

Minogue was awarded best pop artist and best innovation for the Kylie Konnect site, which allows her fans to create their own profiles on it.

Radiohead were crowned artists of the year and Coldplay won best rock/indie artist and best official music website.

A panel of experts chose seven award winners while the public voted online for the remaining 13 prizes.


The Sugababes and British Sea Power performed.

Last year Radiohead invited fans to decide how much they wanted to pay to download their new album.

And Coldplay launched their single Violet Hill on their website as a free download for six hours before it was available anywhere else.

"The music industry is continuing to evolve, with artists and record companies seeking new ways to communicate with fans digitally," said BT's Matthew Dearden.

"The BT Digital Music Awards recognises the artists and those in the industry, both established and up and coming, who are delivering the best in cutting-edge digital music entertainment."

Hadouken! scooped best electronic artist and DJ and Wiley was named best urban artist after for his single Wearing my Rolex.

Other winners included The Zutons for best video podcast and Vampire Weekend for best breakthrough artist.

The show will be broadcast on ITV2 on Saturday and will be presented by Fearne Cotton and Rufus Hound.
