Just looking through previous posts and came across the Brits 2014 post, with my views and opinions of who should win the awards. I therefore thought it might be fun to do this again. The Brit awards is one of my favourite nights, as it includes – music, drama, very Britishness and of course those iconic moments (who could forget Madonna and that cape last year!) So let’s take a look at this years nominations (apart from British Producer), click on their images for the song:
So The Brits I thought were amazing, but then again I am biased due to how much I love the night as it’s ultimately one of my favourites. A few weeks back I wanted to predict my own results and here’s the link if you wish to read it >>> click here <<<
Anyway, let’s do the comparisons, so here we go!
British Breakthrough Artist: My Choice – Bastille >>>>>>>>>>> Winner – Bastille 🙂
British Female Solo Artist: My Choice – Ellie Goulding >>>>>>>>>> Winner – Ellie Goulding 🙂
British Group: My Choice – Bastille >>>>>>>>>> Winner – Arctic Monkeys
British Male Solo: My Choice – Tom Odell >>>>>>>>>> Winner – David Bowie
British Single: chose 3 – Ellie Goulding – Burn, Bastille – Pompei and Calvin Harris >>>>>>>>>> Winner – Rudimental – Waiting All Night 🙂
International Female Artist: My Choice – Katy Perry >>>>>>>>>> Winner – Lorde 🙂
International Male Artist: My Choice – Justin Timberlake >>>>>>>>>> Winner – Bruno Mars 🙂
MasterCard British Album of the Year: My Choice – Bastille >>>>>>>>>> Winner – Arctic Monkeys
I really enjoyed The Brits, from Harry Styles running late, male to male straight/bi kissing, Keith Lemon confusing the hell out of Pharrel Williams and finally the performances. Beyonce was great, I did miss her dancing but she clearly showed off her amazing singing skills – in which Katy Perry needs to take a few lessons from. My ultimate favourite was Bastille vs Rudimental, I was up dancing and just loving life for 5 minutes. Absolute escapism.
The strangest wins of the night and to be honest may be because I have never ever really “got into their music” is The Arctic Monkeys. I don’t know whether they were drugged, pissed or really couldn’t give a sh*t in being there, I know that they have declined many award events in the past, but Alex Turner needs to sort himself out. Okay his speech was great in the end creatively but the way he comes across it’s like he is a school kid who needs to go to the chill out area.
Also……. I may upset a few people about this – PRINCE. I don’t get PRINCE and in my own opinion I don’t understand as to why his music is so “amazing”
PS, well done to James Corden for a brilliant job – especially bringing the issues regarding Justin Bieber up. HaHA!
So basically I just want Bastille to win as many awards as they can tonight, not only are they one of the most original bands around at the moment but they are just so down to earth.
Their album Bad Blood is a must have – seriously.
They have of course their amazing songs such as:

But their covers are freaking amazing – really!! I seriously recommend listening to these (including the one at the top)

I am very biased, but please if you have never checked this out – PLEASE PLEASE do!!!
I hope to God that the One Direction Fans have not gone on a voting frenzy and voted for them to win Best Single……. just no.
The BRIT Awards are coming, my favourite night of the year as I love it, the drama, the music and of course the awards. Over the past few years it has definitely become very……… safe. We used to see artists and audience members going on stage, there were things being thrown about, swearing galore and it just seemed to be out of control and I personally loved it.
Nowadays the BRIT Awards is a big long snake stage surrounded by rich people and celebrities having their dinners not wanting to get up and dance. They just stare at the acts and it always looks like they are paid to be there, whilst the actual “audience” of the normal people lets say, are stuck up high. Let’s go back to when the acts could actually sing to the audience, feel their hands, give them high 5s and truly thank their fans.
Anyway, haha rant over the meaning behind this post is to put who I want to win the awards this year so here we go…….. Continue reading “The Brit Awards 2014.”
