Worldwide Top Selling Artists of 2012

Coldplay front-man Chris Martin says that his band has absolutely no chance of beating Soul/Pop singer Adele, winner of six Grammys, in the upcoming Brits Award taking place on February 21.

The 34-year-old singer feels that his band's album Mylo Xyloto stands no chance against Adele's "21" in in the British Album of the Year category.

"Unless Adele somehow deletes her albums, I think we can come to the conclusion [that we won't win]. I'm pretty sure of it," BBC Radio 2 quoted Martin as saying.

However, the Coldplay singer says that his group has always been grateful to the British music industry, who has nominated the rock group in various categories of the Brits Awards.

"You can be one of those artists that don't really care about them or you can, like us, love it, and we're always so grateful to be included. It's a kind of Olympics for a band; it's nice to win a medal," the singer added.

Former Oasis axeman, Noel Gallagher has confirmed that he will be performing with Chris Martin in a duet at Tuesday's Brit's Awards, being held at at London's O2 Arena.

"Chris and Noel have become good pals over the years. Noel has a lot of respect for Coldplay. He was blown away by their Glastonbury gig when he saw it on telly. They are both up for doing something special," a Brits source told The Sun.
