BRIT Awards 2013: The Results

As much as I enjoyed the BRIT Awards this year  it was certainly lacking something. Renowned for drama and drunkenness this year the awards were a relatively tame affair. I would have liked to press mute during One Direction, look away from Robbie’s dad dancing, tell all the men in the crowd to calm down when Taylor Swift predictably stripped off the white dress, and I’ve already forgotten what Justin Timberlake’s big comeback sounded like. Thankfully, Emeli Sandé stole the show with her closing performance, so at least we ended on a high!

As I predicted who I would like to win I thought I’d give a quick run-down of how accurate they were…

British Breakthrough
I Said: Alt-J                                                        Winner: Ben Howard
As much as I love them, it was wishful thinking to put my hopes on Alt-J, Ben Howard is a worthy rival.

British Female
I said: Amy Winehouse / Emeli Sandé               Winner: Emeli Sandé
Winehouse was a long shot anyway! Emeli deserves this and proved it to everyone with her amazing closing performance.

British Male
I said: Ben Howard                                            Winner: Ben Howard
This one was pretty obvious!

British Group 
I said: Alt-J                                                        Winner: Mumford & Sons
Alt-J were the only group that I’m a fan of, I’m just glad it wasn’t One Direction!

British Album 
I said: Emeli Sandé                                             Winner: Emeli Sandé
Another one for Emeli, and another correct prediction!

British Single 
I said: Adele – Skyfall                                        Winner: Adele – Skyfall
Keep them coming!

Global Success
I said: Adele. Please Adele. I can’t take any more screaming Directioners…         Winner: One Direction
Well you can’t win them all!

International Female
I said: Alicia Keys / Lana Del Rey                   Winner: Lana Del Rey
That’s got to be half a point? I’m expecting big things to come from Del Rey as this award shines a spotlight on some serious talent.

International Male
I said: Frank Ocean / Jack White                     Winner: Frank Ocean
Another half a point I believe? Note to self: Stop hedging your bets!

International Group
I said: The Black Keys                                     Winner:The Black Keys
To quote my prediction: They’ve taken the music scene by storm with something a bit different. They stand out from the crowd of big bands and loud voices, and just seem happy to be doing their own thing! I’m really happy that the guys were recognised with this award.

7/10  I think that went quite well!
