  1. I want Amy to win every category she’s in. Yeah we know she’s a messed up druggie and alcoholic, but damn can she sing
    I love “Valerie” even tho its been around a while I still love it, that old skool sound, I love her voice
    Another than that, I suppose Take That will win everything, the Brits is dry now like the Mobos and every other award show, who cares?!

  2. A bit off the topic, but is there a reason why Mark Ronson has all these Amy Winehouse lookalikes in the video instead of her? Did she fail to turn up for the video shoot?! Lol

  3. From what i’ve heard, Amy didn’t turn up so they had to arrange the ‘Winettes’ at extremely short notice
