Brit Awards 2012

Standard

For the second year in a row The BRIT Awards with Mastercard took place at The O2 in London. Also the second year the BRITs asked that the trophy be designed by a “leading British creative individual”. The design this year was by Sir Peter Blake, pop artist who designed the sleeve for Beatles’ album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Which, as I learnt in an article of The Telegraph is valued at around £70,000.

Lastnight the ceremony was presented by the lovable James Corden

A very big deal has been made of how James “cut off Adele” during her acceptance speech. James as a host, was hired to do a job and was told he had to finish Adele’s speech there. He did a great job of hosting and we should not focus any frustration at him or make this out to be a big news story when it is not. Don’t point the finger at James Corden. Even Adele didn’t ( which just happened to be her middle one.. maybe pointing at the “powers that be”? informing us who is to blame? Not James anyway )

So what now? The winners of course! Adele, who also performed Rolling in The Deep, took home British Female Solo Artist and British Album of The Year <- That's the one she had to be cut off to make room for..

Outstanting Contribution to music winners Blur performed 3 songs to end the show, as sceduled.

Nominated for most Brit Awards this year, Ed Sheeran took home British Male Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act.

Best British Single: One Direction – What Makes You Beautiful

  1. I wasn’t overly impressed with the Brit awards this year to be honest. I was delighted that Adele, Ed Sheeran, Lana Del Ray, The Foo Fighters and Emeli Sande were honoured, but I just felt that there was something missing from the show. I can’t even put my finger on it, but there was something just not there this year! I felt bad for James Corden that he had to cut Adele off, I mean it really must have been ridiculously embarrassing to have to do on live television, and I agree with you – it really wasn’t his fault, he was doing what he was told to do. But whoever did make that order might want their heads looked at!
