BRIT Awards 2012
Next week brings us the return of the BRIT Awards as the music awards show takes over London on Tuesday 21st February. After our good (and sometimes terrible) predictions for last weeks BAFTAs we thought we would try our hand at music instead to see if we fair any better.
Not only that, but fans are given the chance to perform with new kid on the block, and soon to be ‘pop royalty’ Jessie J. In an exclusive competition with MasterCard called Something For The Fans, you, yes you, are invited to submit your application in a chance to win. A select few will then be asked to submit their own video audition, before Ms J herself decides who will join her on stage. Previously recording stage shows with Emeli Sandé, JLS and Labrinth will be shown on the night in exclusive ads.
Anyway, back to it, with who we think will win at this years BRITs;
British Male Solo Artist
Who we want to win: Ed Sheeran. He may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but this guy has balls of steel! Unless you have seen him live, some small ginger kid standing on stage in front of thousands doing what he does, then you might not appreciate it. For that alone, he is our winner.
Who will win: Ed Sheeran. Now although the BRITS won’t award it to him for balls of steal, they will for the brilliant debut album.
Winner: Ed Sheeran
British Female Solo Artist
Florence & the Machine
Who we want to win: Adele. Not the biggest fans, but the girl has made her mark around the world. If we were a female blog. She would be our ambassador I am sure. ‘You go girl’
Who will win: Adele. No contest really is there? Yes Jessie J could cause an upset as she is involved with the marketing and BRITS promo, but there is only one clear winner. Isn’t there…
British Breakthrough Act
Who we want to win: Emeli Sandé. Becoming a huge huge fan of this huge voice. Such a talent and just love her on stage with Chase and Status! One to watch!
Who will win: Jessie J. It should go to Ed, but given Adele will win best female, BRITS will give Jessie J this to heal the pain…
Winner: Ed Sheeran
Chase & Status
Who we want to win: Chase and Status. The non stop touring guys had a rip roaring album with ‘No more idols’ and that alone should be good enough. Not to mention the fact they are just your non-standard…!
Who will win: Coldplay. Not an easy call, it may go to the Monkeys, but those boring guys who are one of the most depressing bands on the planet will take this. Erm, well done Coldplay…
Adele – Someone Like You
Ed Sheeran – The A Team
Example – Changed The Way You Kissed Me
Jessie J ft Bob – Price Tag
JLS ft Dev – She Makes Me Wanna
Military Wives/Gareth Malone – Wherever You Are
Olly Murs ft Rizzle Kicks – Heart Skips A Beat
One Direction – What Makes You Beautiful
Pixie Lott – All About Tonight
The Wanted – Glad You Came
Who we want to win: Military Wives/Gareth Malone – Wherever You Are. Are we serious?! Yes we are, great idea, for charity, and of course raising awareness of our armed forces. We need not say any more.
Who will win: Jessie J ft Bob – Price Tag. Not easy again this one, Olly, Jessie or anyone else could win this, but Ms Price Tag will take it by a nose… We think.
Winner: One Direction
MasterCard British Album of the Year
Adele – 21
Coldplay – Mylo Xyloto
Ed Sheeran – +
Florence & The Machine – Ceremonials
PJ Harvey – Let England Shake
Who we want to win: Ed Sheeran – +. Big fan of the man, big fan of the album. He won’t get it, but he will come second. Maybe.
Who will win: Adele – 21. Another no contest for Adele, the fans love her, the PR companies love her. Easy win.
Winner: Adele – 21
International Male Solo Artist
Who we want to win: Bon Iver. All of these guys are in with a shout, but big movements in the last few months puts this guy ahead!
Who will win: Bon Iver. Argh, will he take it? We think just. Though Guetta may be a good outside bet….!
Winner: Bruno Mars
International Female Solo Artist
Who we want to win: Rihanna. Erm, she can sing? What?!
Who will win: Rihanna. Could go to Gaga or Beyoncé, but Rihanna has done the more than most. Hit after Hit, week after week, hot after hotter.
Jay Z/ Kanye West
Who we want to win: Jay Z / Kanye West. The album of last year without a doubt, not sure how two of the most successful solo artists and producers of all time count as a group, but hey. They are in to win it.
Who will win: Jay Z / Kanye West. So so good, the BRITS put them in for a reason and will want to look cool over the pond…!
Winner: Foo Fighters
So there we have it, our thoughts laid out bare! Agree? Oh and of course a huge shout to Blur, who will pick up Outstanding Contribution to Music award. Childhood heroes!
