The Brit Awards 2012 took place in London several hours ago and it was a snorefest. The ceremony was drier than stale bread and the audience made up of industry folk lacked enthusiasm as usual.
The tributes to Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse (Rest In Peace) were both pitiful. I don’t even know what that was.
Bruno Mars gave the best performance. Well done Bruno!
I am still trying to understand why Olly Murs and Rizzle Kicks were invited to perform.
Rapper/’singer’ Plan B seriously needs to eat something.
Jessie J went home empty handed. But at least she has a couple of MOBO awards on her mantle piece 🙂
Singer Ed Sheeran picked up two awards and on both occasions FAILED to thank SBTV founder Jamal Edwards who championed his career from the very beginning by using SBTV to help promote Ed and his music.
Well it looks like old Jamal has served his purpose and is about to learn some valuable lessons here. But I suppose he should feel grateful that Ed, his label and management allowed him to sit at their table throughout the evening (sarcasm).
Anyway check out the winners list below.
