The Brits are tonight!! = BASTILLE NIGHT!

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:

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.
