The Brit Awards 2010

February 17, 2010 at 4:05 pm (Music News) (, , , )

Last night’s Brit Awards was once again not deviod of any drama and  i’m not talking about Lily Allen’s ridiculous orange wig.

Oasis won the best album of the last 30 years, a new category to mark how long  The Brits has been running. And who should appear to accept the award: the always so cheerful Liam Gallagher, who failed to even mention his brother, Noel, in his acceptance speech. Not content with snubbing his brother he then decided to throw his microphone and award at the crowd. If that isn’t gratitude then i don’t know what is!

Kasabian won best British band beating the likes of Muse and Friendly Fires; their first Brit award since their debut album was released six years ago.

JLS, one of the very few success stories to come out of The X-Factor, won best single for the over-played ‘Beat Again’ and best British breakthrough act beating Pixie Lott and Florence and the Machine to the title.

Lady GaGa was the real winner of the night, scooping three awards for best international female, international breakthough act and best album in what can only be described as a bird’s nest in her hair. She also gave a stripped back performance of her song ‘Telephone’, showing the Brits why she deserved the awards.

Other winners included Lily Allen for best female, Dizzee Rascal for best male and Florence and the Machine’s ‘Lungs’  for the best album.

The only Brit award that seems to mean anything in the music industry, the critics’ choice award, went to a well deserving Ellie Goulding who is set to be huge this year with her debut album ‘Lights’ being released on the 1st of March.

The Brits seem to have lost the respectable status they once had, you used to look forward to seeing your favourite artists perform but now its a case of which reality and manufactured star has won this time.
