Music's Biggest Night... NOT! Part Deux

19.2.14



Maybe this should have been a big night for British music, after all The Brits Awards used to mean something, right?


So, you know those evenings when you come home and all you want to do is just veg-out in front of the TV and watch crap? yeah those. I’ll do this in a similar way to the one ZR did for the Emmys, with bullet points of the facts.

  • Hosted by James Corden, who has managed to pull of quite a good job of being half-funny.

  • Noel Gallagher (ironically) walks on to award the best male category - he attempts some sharp witty-humor and fails epically, as the crowd falls deathly silent.

  • Both Daft Punk and David Bowie won awards, but don’t get too excited… ‘as if’ they’re going to be at the Brits.
  • Rudimental and Bastille link up to do one of those ‘obligatory’ award ceremony collaborations. Don’t get me wrong, each of these acts have released brilliant albums the last year, but together? naaah, it sounds like playing two records at the same time and at full whack.
  • Elle Goulding cranks up the show and probably steels it with a blinding (literally) performance. There’s fire as she appropriately blasts out last years hit ‘Burn’.

  • Award winners got to go home with a personalized illuminated Make-up Mirror.

  • Lorde performs with Disclosure. Lorde is then confirmed as ‘The future of music’.

  • Another point: I’m still here watching and quite surprised I’ve managed to endure so much pop music.
  • Finally, The Arctic Monkeys (or ‘AM’?!) take the stage to collect one of two awards, and this should really be the highlight of the night. Tunnel Snake Greaser Alex Turner collects the award with the band and with it, he transcends into some of the most pretentious garbage I’ve ever heard. I mean is this really the best platform? cause those Brit kids are really, really going to care about your abstractism aren’t they?
