US hip-hop band the Black Eyed Peas were mistakenly declared best international group at France's top music awards before the prize was given to the real winners, the German band Tokio Hotel.

Choreographer Kamel Ouali, who was presenting the prizes late Saturday at the NRJ Awards in Cannes, told the audience the US band had won but a few minutes later returned to the stage to say he had made a mistake.

Last year Katy Perry was mistakenly given the trophy for best international song when it should have gone to Rihanna.
