Presented by BMI London's Nick Robinson, the certificate also came with hearty congratulations for their Best New Artist nomination at the 48th Annual Grammy Awards, held February 8 in Los Angeles.

The piano-dominated group, whose debut album Hopes and Fears was certified Gold in the US, also picked up two 2005 Brit Awards and an IFPI Platinum Award for more than two million album sales in Europe. A BMI Los Angeles "Pick of the Month" artist in 2003, Keane also participated in Live 8 and opened for U2 last year on the European leg of their Vertigo tour.
