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
International Male Solo Artist: Bruno Mars.
