Lorelilee Wed 20-Feb-13 19:59:02

I probably won't recognise half of them, but I like to feel down wiv the kids...

SoleSource Wed 20-Feb-13 20:03:23

James Corden makes me want to barf.

LillethTheCat Wed 20-Feb-13 20:03:53

Im watching it. Noticed that its on for an extra 15 mins this year.

slimshady Wed 20-Feb-13 20:04:06

Might as well. Nothing else on.

Lorelilee Wed 20-Feb-13 20:04:24

Apparently he's got tonsilitis and Chris Evans is on standby, so start praying smile

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 20:04:31

Me, i'm here.. Love Muse!!

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 20:04:54

I was- then I turned onto Muse.

Can't stand Muse.

I used to get really excited about the Brits- it was an event. Now it's a bit bland. And I bet they will cut to a ad straight after this wink

slimshady Wed 20-Feb-13 20:05:25

Yep. Quality musicians.

Lorelilee Wed 20-Feb-13 20:05:52

Not exactly a world-beating start...

WipsGlitter Wed 20-Feb-13 20:07:06

Muse are miming.

out2lunch Wed 20-Feb-13 20:07:28

James corden

This can only get better

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 20:07:55

Wips that's what I thought.

out2lunch Wed 20-Feb-13 20:09:06

ooh Justin yes please

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 20:09:48

^ bah ^ to you Muse haterz

If Wand Erection do Blondie i shall be angry

LillethTheCat Wed 20-Feb-13 20:10:44

Ooh not impressed with the trophy this year, looks like its got wrapping paper on

Lorelilee Wed 20-Feb-13 20:12:23

Predictable cut to Harry when Taylor came on.

Watched Muse but will probably turn it off now!

TeamEdward Wed 20-Feb-13 20:15:01

My brother is there, on table 49 (?). Haven't spotted him yet though!

Why is Amy Winehouse a nominee for best female artist?

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 20:17:31

It's very Emma Bridgewater, this year's trophy. Maybe she should sue Damian for copyright?grin

out2lunch Wed 20-Feb-13 20:21:07

Oh dear rw

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 20:21:08

Hate this song

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 20:21:23

Muse are a bit shit. And I can't stand Cordon.

I will watch with wine and criticise them all.

HotSoupDumpling Wed 20-Feb-13 20:21:28

Ooh, finding the Robbie Williams set rather amusing with its dancing French horn players...

Lorelilee Wed 20-Feb-13 20:21:44

I wish, for once, he'd sing a song the whole way through!

slimshady Wed 20-Feb-13 20:22:18

Muse aren't as shit as this bloke on now. Fuck me.

HotSoupDumpling Wed 20-Feb-13 20:22:33

(Well, not French horn, but you know what I mean... I'm not good at identifying big wind instruments)

YouBrokeMySmoulder Wed 20-Feb-13 20:22:43

Sigh and meh. It just hasnt evolved this show. I can now see the point of the whole million different categories of the grammys as this is now completely irrelevant to me.

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 20:22:54

I love wand erection. I could do dirty things to them.

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 20:23:34

Taggie-it's the best way to watch.

This is a terrible song.

twofalls Wed 20-Feb-13 20:24:04

An pretty bored so far. Is it because I am 40?

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 20:24:06

I see Robsters discovered 'Just for men'.. bless

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 20:24:12

Why is cordons head so big?

slimshady Wed 20-Feb-13 20:24:27

Nah. Wand erection are babies.

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 20:25:26


Is your brother Calvin Harris? I was watching perving at him earlier on itv2

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 20:25:58

I also love Robbie and could do dirty things with him.

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 20:25:59

See, the Brits mattered when I sold cds for a living, and something random happening on the night could have a real effect on sales. 20 years on, I watchand sigh.

I ADORE the XX though.

Horsemad Wed 20-Feb-13 20:26:00

Love RW, my friend's DH is the image of him.

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 20:26:48

Yay mumford and sons. love these

ceebeegeebies Wed 20-Feb-13 20:27:17

Ok, I have only heard of 3 of the 'Best British Bands' and I am not really that out of touch hmm

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 20:27:21

I do like his beard.

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 20:27:50

Glad Mumford did it and not The bloody XX, boring twats..

Boy Raahh we disagree astronomically so far grin

LillethTheCat Wed 20-Feb-13 20:28:10

Incognito Calvin Harris has got a sister on MN, but I think her name was Tunnocks or something. She admitted it in a thread about knowing anyone famous. Unless of course its the same poster.

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 20:28:12

The award looks like its been attacked by pudsey bear

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 20:28:16

Is every link going to reference Harry Styles, ffs?

ceebeegeebies Wed 20-Feb-13 20:28:17

Horsemad you don't live in the NW do you grin One of the dad's at DS1's school is the absolute spitting image of Robbie wink

slimshady Wed 20-Feb-13 20:28:18

Love the Grimshaw.

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 20:28:49

Jelly grin

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 20:29:04

Yes I think she's name changed grin

Lorelilee Wed 20-Feb-13 20:29:47

Ben Howard, who he?

How did Mumford & Son beat Muse?

And are we going to have 5 minutes without Harry Styles being mentioned?

slimshady Wed 20-Feb-13 20:30:46

Sheesh. Not much personality has he.

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 20:31:00

Fern Cotton plays him a lot.

Ooh, now Dave Grohl- that's more like it. mmmmmmmmm

slimshady Wed 20-Feb-13 20:31:16

My god. I love DG.

Snazzynewyear Wed 20-Feb-13 20:31:21

I hadn't heard of any of the breakthrough nominees except Rita Ora. But then I watch each year hoping not to feel old and fail miserably.

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 20:31:37

Hubba hubba the Grohl meister!!!

cocolepew Wed 20-Feb-13 20:31:46

I haven't heard 1D doing Blondie yet, I may have to stick my head in the oven.

sapphirestar Wed 20-Feb-13 20:31:53

I'm a bit concerned that I've never heard of about half of the nominees for each category...I'm 26! shock and the top 40 on sundays makes my ears bleed

Snazzynewyear Wed 20-Feb-13 20:32:20

Love Dave Grohl's Queen Mother-style wave. <resolves to adopt this for any suitable occasion>

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 20:32:48

They beat them because they are better grin

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 20:33:04

Chewing gum, classy Simon.

Plan B looks nothing like he sounds. Fact. In fact, he sounds like 2 different people.

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 20:33:10

coco I'll join you, its even got Teenage kicks in the chorus
< shakes head in disgust >

out2lunch Wed 20-Feb-13 20:33:26

Dg funny
Why can't they play

Lorelilee Wed 20-Feb-13 20:33:59

Am not feeling so bad now as my 16 year old niece hasn't heard of Alt-J either and she likes all sorts of weird and wonderful American punk rock stuff...

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 20:34:40

I'm 5 minutes behind now bloody teenagers.

Oooh. Grohl.

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 20:35:42

Oooh. Cowell.

sparkle101 Wed 20-Feb-13 20:35:48

I just don't get Mumford and sons. I dislike them immensely although they have done nothing to offend me, apart from play their music.

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 20:36:06

Who gets the lifetime achievement thing this year? Blur were terrible last year, and on for hours.

Oh gawd- we will be subjected to Adele doing 'Sky- fowwwwlll' 'Tum-bow-llll' won't we at some point? And 'over-doo'- that bit especially makes me cross.grin

cocolepew Wed 20-Feb-13 20:36:13

Teenage Kicks as well? <cries>

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 20:36:25

Lorelilee, Alt J are veeery mellow thats probably why, they're not American either i don't think..

slimshady Wed 20-Feb-13 20:36:36

Ooooh indeed taggie. Now DG I would destroy wink

EnjoyResponsibly Wed 20-Feb-13 20:38:05

I'm a bit late, but why is James Boredom wearing Bob Monkhouses jacket and bow tie confused

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 20:38:32

Ah. Caught up now.

I like Alt-J.

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 20:38:52

'Alt-J' aren't very American punky at all. They have a very quite a unique sound- a bit like 'Antony and the johnsons' vocalist.

I think they are from leedsgrin

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 20:39:01

Ooooh. Justin.

MrsJamin Wed 20-Feb-13 20:39:14

Ooh Mr JT

MrsJamin Wed 20-Feb-13 20:39:32

Great minds think alike Taggie!

ceebeegeebies Wed 20-Feb-13 20:39:37

Mmmm, now Justin timberlake...I so would grin

YouBrokeMySmoulder Wed 20-Feb-13 20:39:56

Live isnt always best is it...

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 20:40:21

Come back Jarvis Cocker!

Lorelilee Wed 20-Feb-13 20:40:48

Eww, never saw the attraction. Not the best singer either...

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 20:41:00

JT sounded terrible then .

I'm bored of James Corden presenting it all the time.

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 20:41:09


TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 20:41:24

He could just stsnd still and we could look. This is somewhat mediocre.

Horsemad Wed 20-Feb-13 20:41:38

Ceebee - not NW but glad to hear there's another Robster lookalikey out there!! grin

Heavywheezing Wed 20-Feb-13 20:41:39

We've waited how long for jt new record and this is it....

atarexia Wed 20-Feb-13 20:42:53

Terrible jacket, and why is his bow tie so big!?

MrsJamin Wed 20-Feb-13 20:43:34

If underwhelming was a word, this would define it. #JT

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 20:43:46

He's like a higher pitched Michael Bolton grin

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 20:43:57

Oh get on with it Justine.

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 20:45:24

Spot on Incignito

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 20:46:01

I love Paloma. Her album is

I really like JTs suit and tie record thats on the radio at the moment, wish he'd sung that

Figgygal Wed 20-Feb-13 20:46:39

Am an hour behind but what is corden wearing?!?

atarexia Wed 20-Feb-13 20:47:03

Brush your hair Ed!

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 20:47:23

Richard Hawley to win please..

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 20:47:24

We love Ed in this house.

atarexia Wed 20-Feb-13 20:47:58

Oh god this dullard again

Heavywheezing Wed 20-Feb-13 20:48:33

Who is this man?

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 20:48:50

Oh poo.. but i do like Ben Howard anyhows

slimshady Wed 20-Feb-13 20:51:03


Just been and made cup of tea and scoffed cake.

Heavywheezing Wed 20-Feb-13 20:51:03

Is that Cheney hawks?

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 20:51:58

ooh- Jelly- 3 minute warning not to come back after the break. The Wandies are on!

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 20:52:01

I am the one and only.

That would be an excellent MN name.

Snazzynewyear Wed 20-Feb-13 20:53:51

Are they going to mangle the Teenage Kicks / Blondie thing? <goes to make brew >

RedPencils Wed 20-Feb-13 20:53:58

I'm watching. Feeling a bit of a fogey because I don't half of them and DS keeps giving me the folly eyes.
Justin's song is a bit rubbish. Still would though.

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 20:54:21

Eeeeeeeeeek ! Raahh

If anyone dares to say they like The Wandies murdering Blondie, i shall scream sooooo loud.... you have been warned!

SoleSource Wed 20-Feb-13 20:56:26

I love the Wanders!

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 20:56:29

It's like when bloody Atomic Kitten did ' The Tide is high'. it was terrible. Not surprising, as it was Atomic kittengrin

Lorelilee Wed 20-Feb-13 20:56:38

I prob wont like the song, but will definitely lust after Harry and Zayn. <perv>

ceebeegeebies Wed 20-Feb-13 20:57:32

I don't think Wandies version is that bad but it is for charidee so I don't really care grin

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 20:57:39

oh ffs- ENOUGH with the Styles.

Piss off Sharon. You're a grandmother.

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 20:58:06

Sole ya pilchard! grin

ceebeegeebies Wed 20-Feb-13 20:58:09

Oh and I will be saving my lusting for Niall - cute and blonde wink

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 20:58:50

I like Lana. I know she is very marmite.

slimshady Wed 20-Feb-13 20:58:53

She looks different. Nose job?

SoleSource Wed 20-Feb-13 20:59:14


Frickin hate Dermot


Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 20:59:52

Woah, Lanas lips seem to have gone down to a normal size..

Lorelilee Wed 20-Feb-13 20:59:55

Another dullard!

SoleSource Wed 20-Feb-13 20:59:56

Lol James!

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 21:00:23


Picturesinthefirelight Wed 20-Feb-13 21:00:43

That was below the belt Sharon - literally.

Rude old bag.

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:01:41

aww, they've let wee Liam grow out his nits-cut.

ceebeegeebies Wed 20-Feb-13 21:01:53

Ok, I know not everyone likes the Wandies but they certainly sound better than Robbie and Justin shock

Lorelilee Wed 20-Feb-13 21:01:54

Simon sitting rubbing his thighs...

MrsJamin Wed 20-Feb-13 21:01:59

Squeeeee it's 1D! [channels 13-year-old self to make this year's brits bearable]

Allfurcoatandnoknickers Wed 20-Feb-13 21:02:03


EnjoyResponsibly Wed 20-Feb-13 21:02:06

I'm still on Michael Bolton Justin.

What has the Old Crone Osbourn done?

YouBrokeMySmoulder Wed 20-Feb-13 21:02:15

Actually this song being sung by a man is really stalky and creepy ugh.

PirateHat Wed 20-Feb-13 21:02:24

Oh it's really terrible. Actually worse than I expected.

Snazzynewyear Wed 20-Feb-13 21:02:46

Yep the dullard winners are coming thick and fast.

This is unpleasant.

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 21:02:50

They are nice boys but...........

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 21:02:53


Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:03:10

dd1 loves them.

But she is 6.

When I was 6, I loved The Bay City Rollers and the Wombles.


Picturesinthefirelight Wed 20-Feb-13 21:03:33

Dermot said she was looking forward to meeting HS. Sharon said where is that Harry Potter has he got his stick with him. That's his willy.

That was AWFUL.

Snazzynewyear Wed 20-Feb-13 21:03:53

It's all very wrong.

James Corden has cold eyes.

EnjoyResponsibly Wed 20-Feb-13 21:04:34

Pictures eeeeww

RedPencils Wed 20-Feb-13 21:04:39

Teenage kicks. How could they? It's the best song ever. And they've murdered it.

Snazzynewyear Wed 20-Feb-13 21:04:46

And fuck these filmettes are pretentious.

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 21:06:41

Phew, i'm glad the majority agree.. MN is bloody great!

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 21:06:42

I love Jack Whitehall. He should present it next year.

atarexia Wed 20-Feb-13 21:06:47

Poor gymnast guy looks mortified

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:06:50


it's all gone a bit Sam and Mick

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 21:07:28

Guck me not The stones.

sapphirestar Wed 20-Feb-13 21:07:43

This is actually quite upsetting, I used to look forward to the BRITs for months when I was a kid and now I just don't think I can bear much more!

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:07:56


Oh bloody hell not bloody Coldplay <slits wrists>

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 21:08:02

Even worse. Fucking coldplay.

How dull

ceebeegeebies Wed 20-Feb-13 21:08:19

I see Chris Martin couldn't be arsed turning up tonight hmm

atarexia Wed 20-Feb-13 21:08:37

No chris Martin? Too busy growing mung beans I guess

Picturesinthefirelight Wed 20-Feb-13 21:08:43

Even dd says she hasn't heard of half of them and its a bit rubbish.

Snazzynewyear Wed 20-Feb-13 21:08:44

More dullard winners!

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:08:53

Coldplay took over and ruined the Paralympic closing ceremony. It was too much. Is this heston Blumenthal?

Lorelilee Wed 20-Feb-13 21:10:32

Am now officially re-naming as 'The Shits'

harrietlichman Wed 20-Feb-13 21:11:01

All you's not even for you! Go and watch your Downton Box sets or something - The Brits is not for Mums(netters)!

ceebeegeebies Wed 20-Feb-13 21:12:11

Well my observation for the night is that, these days, in order to be a successful pop artiste these days you obviously need to have zero personality hmm

<snigger> and Coldplay have their finger on the pulse of British yoof, do they?

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 21:12:26

Even I'm cooler than most of this bollocks.

<<adjusts cardi>>

Figgygal Wed 20-Feb-13 21:12:35

Why is dermot not presenting this?

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 21:13:12

Yeah Jack Whitehall should present next year. In fact just kick James in the goolies and take over now! You're way funnier

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 21:14:36

Ooooof. Tom!

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 21:15:15

DD1 has just disolved in a heap of hormones

Offs. They are really ripping the piss. Its like a celebration of the worst of Britain.

Wossy. Grrrrr angry

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 21:15:35

They'd be too scared to let Jack present, he's a loose cannon these days. That's why we love him eh?

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 21:16:04

Oh I wove wossy sorry blush

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:16:09


Picturesinthefirelight Wed 20-Feb-13 21:16:17

Now the dc are excited

I think thevwholevthing could be redeemed by suing Skyfall now (love that song)

Happiestinwellybobs Wed 20-Feb-13 21:16:42

I feel old... and clearly not down with the yoof!

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 21:16:50

I like loose cannons yes hence woving wossy grin

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 21:16:52


sparkle101 Wed 20-Feb-13 21:17:01

Unfortunately Adele couldn't be arsed to come tonight........

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:17:02


But nice diggrin

Picturesinthefirelight Wed 20-Feb-13 21:17:14


Nice touch Adele!

Oh, he's a twat

YouBrokeMySmoulder Wed 20-Feb-13 21:17:44

I hadnt heard some of those singles up for best single. For shame.

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 21:17:46

Oh Corden shut the fuck up, arse!

Picturesinthefirelight Wed 20-Feb-13 21:18:01

Come on The Brits or the Oscars ? I know which event id choose.

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 21:18:07

Get James trying to be funny off Adele's funny comment.

Bore or Boredon

I loved Corden before. But hes losing it.

Picturesinthefirelight Wed 20-Feb-13 21:18:33

Oh no now dd is singing to this tripe.

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:18:36

They should do what they do on Children in need, and swap the presenters every hour. Or half, not fussy.

Have we mentioned Styles yet?

Shakinstevie Wed 20-Feb-13 21:18:46

Anyone else cringing when James corden speaks?

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 21:18:52

I quite like taylor but what the jeff is she wearing?

Figgygal Wed 20-Feb-13 21:19:00

Havent heard any laughs yet.........i need a wine

ceebeegeebies Wed 20-Feb-13 21:19:02

Ooh Taylor with her ode to Harry grin

Picturesinthefirelight Wed 20-Feb-13 21:19:03

Dancers are good though.

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:19:31

Interesting dress.

The bottom will come off, won't it?

Picturesinthefirelight Wed 20-Feb-13 21:19:36

Dd's putting the harmonies in bless her.

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 21:19:55

Styles who Raahh? grin

Mrsrobertduvall Wed 20-Feb-13 21:19:57

Taylor Swift looks as if she should be sitting on top of a toilet with spare loo roll up her skirt.

Shakinstevie Wed 20-Feb-13 21:20:03

I like Taylor, love this song smile

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:20:24

She's come as a loo roll holder- very English.


TeamEdward Wed 20-Feb-13 21:20:37

Incognito - Calvin Harris' MNing sister is Tunnocks. My DB is an A&R for a major label so not famous at all.

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 21:20:46

Thats better.

NaturalBlondeYeahRight Wed 20-Feb-13 21:21:01

Taylor swift =annoying?

Snazzynewyear Wed 20-Feb-13 21:21:09

I am liking her! Eat your heart out Harry grin

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:21:19

x-post Mrsrgrin

Is there any chance that Olly Murs might perform? Or win sumfink?

I loves him.

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 21:21:54

Whats an A&R?

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 21:22:07

Bless her for doing the 'look at what your missing' bit. Good girl!
Chin up, tits out..

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 21:22:08

That's how to piss your ex off.

Come to the party looking hot and slim and take your dress off half way through.

Picturesinthefirelight Wed 20-Feb-13 21:22:11

Why does Taylor Seift have to breathe in so noisily after every single blooming line.

MrsJamin Wed 20-Feb-13 21:22:22

Taylor Swift, love, you should not try to do sexy or dancing, stick with the nice songs and looking like a princess. It's really awkward to watch- the girl cannot move.

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:22:53

I have a soft spot for Olly- he's kind of a guilty pleasure. I love to belt out 'Dance with me tonight' in the carblush

Picturesinthefirelight Wed 20-Feb-13 21:23:03

Snazzynewyear Wed 20-Feb-13 21:24:22

More Dave!

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 21:24:44

Dave's left nostril is sudpiciously large.

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 21:25:07

< hangs tongue out.. licks tv screen >
Grohl !

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:25:25

Dave is very classy.

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 21:25:35

You can tell the oldies among us.

All drooling over Grohl and perving over the young ones grin

MrsMushroom Wed 20-Feb-13 21:25:36

God I love him out of the Killers.

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 21:26:22

Raahh You're not agreeing are you? grin

I cannot stand Emilie Sande. Shes everywhere.

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 21:26:46


Brandon Flowers has always always been gorgeous smile

Wishfulmakeupping Wed 20-Feb-13 21:27:27

What did Robbie say about Taylor swift couldn't work it out but made James cordon wince?

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:27:42

Jelly- we may have agreed on a couple of things tonight. grin

ceebeegeebies Wed 20-Feb-13 21:28:14

He said it must be his turn next which I assume is referring to the fact that she has had quite a lot of boyfriends wink

LucilleBluth Wed 20-Feb-13 21:28:26

None of the big acts seem to have turned up, no Adele, no Chris Martin ect, ect........I am way too old for this shite. It's worse now than it used to be and it used to be shit.

Picturesinthefirelight Wed 20-Feb-13 21:29:30

Yes or No? It's way past bedtime (8.30-9pm during school holidays). The dc want to stay up and watch the rest. Yes or No?

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 21:30:21

Raahh, careful - there's still 3/4 hour to go..

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 21:30:24

let them stay up its the holidays

Wishfulmakeupping Wed 20-Feb-13 21:30:37

Naughty Robbie he don't change. I'm wondering how many more mentions Harry styles will get on the Brits tonight - there's a drinking game in that surely

On the basis they might be gratuitously exposed to more Wand Erection, I vote No

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 21:31:39

Yes, its culture innit Pictures wink

spudmasher Wed 20-Feb-13 21:32:36

A pleasing lack of semi naked gyrating women tonight though.

ceebeegeebies Wed 20-Feb-13 21:32:45

Yes, it is the holidays!

RedPencils Wed 20-Feb-13 21:33:13

This fellas is the new Ed Sheeran.
It's all a bit middle of the road these days. Where's Jarvis when you need him.

ceebeegeebies Wed 20-Feb-13 21:33:19

Well, this song is a bit dull hmm Matches the rest of the evening though I guess grin

Picturesinthefirelight Wed 20-Feb-13 21:33:43

I guess I have spent years trying to get dd to appreciate all styles of music not just classical and musical theatre.

Mrsrobertduvall Wed 20-Feb-13 21:34:08

I am very, very old but at least I listen to Radio 2 grin and know who half these people are.
Dh has no idea who anybody is, and has gone off to watch Barcelona play football next door.

Not keen on dirgy guitar playing man on at the moment. Not a patch on Neil Young or Leonard Cohen. Combined ages about 150.

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:34:12

Jelly- you have a point.grin

I do like Ben, but can't imagine how this transfers to a big arena. Will either be spine-tingly (Adele- Someone like you) or fall flat.

Picturesinthefirelight Wed 20-Feb-13 21:34:21

I thought it reminded me of someone - Ed Sheeran of course.

YouBrokeMySmoulder Wed 20-Feb-13 21:34:25

Is this david gray with a different face?

Picturesinthefirelight Wed 20-Feb-13 21:35:43

He really isn't funny is he?

YouBrokeMySmoulder Wed 20-Feb-13 21:37:27

Am sure Eavis will be pleased at Alt-Js announcement there...


Brilliant host.


<lukewarm applause> for Corden

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:38:42

not Mickey Bubbles...noooo it's not Christmas!

TomDudgeon Wed 20-Feb-13 21:39:08

Boring boring bored

And a sad indication of what's mainstream these days.

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 21:39:45

Bring back smash hits awards.

They were good.

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 21:40:00

I met Michael Eavis at DS2s graduation ceremony, my god he was a letch!
Awful man..

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:40:33

The first War Child album was brilliant.

Picturesinthefirelight Wed 20-Feb-13 21:41:10

In fact lets just bring back Smash Hits

Picturesinthefirelight Wed 20-Feb-13 21:41:33

Eek NYE I'm worried. Is this suitable for the dc.

ceebeegeebies Wed 20-Feb-13 21:42:45

Taggie god yes, Smash Hits awards were AMAZING - they celebrated what was popular rather than what was 'cool' grin

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 21:43:44

Was that one called Help Raahh?

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 21:44:00

I still love Damon (reverts back to 14 year old self)

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 21:44:29




Mrsrobertduvall Wed 20-Feb-13 21:44:47

Oh I do hate worthy awards.

Lorelilee Wed 20-Feb-13 21:45:10

Has Damon had work done to his eyes?

Snazzynewyear Wed 20-Feb-13 21:45:20

I loved the way that Smash Hits had the Most Very Horrible Thing award. Won IIRC by spiders 8 years running! grin

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 21:45:34

Pet shop boys....



Ilovemydogandmydoglovesme Wed 20-Feb-13 21:46:27

I'm only 37 and I don't know who half of them are!!!!


RedPencils Wed 20-Feb-13 21:46:28

I'll join the bring back Smash Hits campaign.

ceebeegeebies Wed 20-Feb-13 21:46:29

Take That...



PatriciaHolm Wed 20-Feb-13 21:46:32

I think Damon's been at the sherries....

MrsJamin Wed 20-Feb-13 21:46:33

Vanilla Ice!

Snazzynewyear Wed 20-Feb-13 21:46:36

<puts on 'CHOOSE LIFE' t-shirt>

LetUsPrey Wed 20-Feb-13 21:46:53

I'm a bit behind but the bonus is I can whizz through lots of it.

Loving Mumford and Sons. They should have won best live act.

Love Ben Howard and Tom Odell and Alt-J.

And now I'm caught up and can't fast forward any more. Bollocks.

Looking forward to seeing Mumford and Sons though grin

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:47:34

Jelly -itwas- had some very haunting covers- Sinead O'Connor did 'Ode to Billy Joe', think Suede did 'Shipbuilding'. Need to look it up- it was very 1995- but brilliant all the same.

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 21:47:41

Battery dying..... Like my Brit enthusiasm......

Snazzynewyear Wed 20-Feb-13 21:47:45

And I think it was the inestimable Smash Hits where George Michael was asked if the Choose Life t-shirts were an anti-abortion slogan and said no, he'd seen them in a shop but thought they said 'Loose Life' so bought them grin

I am only 25 and I dont know who a lot of them are.

The brits used to be exciting. WTF happened?

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 21:48:17

Why did they actually stop doing smash hits?

Did everyone used to watch it while decorating their Christmas tree like me and my sister used to?

Snazzynewyear Wed 20-Feb-13 21:48:30

This last bit feels like hard work.

<dons lace fingerless gloves>
<gets in pit at the front of the stage>
<wets pants>

Snazzynewyear Wed 20-Feb-13 21:49:20

Incognito Couldn't compete with free internet material innit

RedPencils Wed 20-Feb-13 21:49:42

Who's the lifetime achievement award this year? I'm still having nightmares about Blur's shit karaoke themed performance last year.

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 21:50:02

Thought it was.. I've still got it on cassette Raahh grin

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 21:50:57

Yeah I guess but really if they put the effort in they could have adapted

I don't know who most of them are. However, I get my kicks by watching One Direction and perving over the young Mr Styles, so I'm pretty much in my element here grin I like the drinking games idea someone had too!

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 21:51:29

Ooooh. Mumford.

<thrashes fringe up and down>

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 21:51:48

And this is why mumford are better than muse

TomDudgeon Wed 20-Feb-13 21:52:48

Oh yes the help album was great
Sadly I has it on tape

I sound so old, I'm not really

Oh, I'm watching on +1 too, so just about to see 1Ds performance I think

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:53:16

Go beardy, go!

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:54:04

Yep- definitely spot the difference between live, and not live

TomDudgeon Wed 20-Feb-13 21:55:22

We're watching on delay but fast forwarding through the shit
So catching up very fast

Mrsrobertduvall Wed 20-Feb-13 21:55:43

Can't decide if I like Mumford and Sons or not.
Oh fuck me Bryan Ferry...I love him.

I used to like BF but was at a gig and saw him chuck a fan off stage sad

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 21:56:23

You and me both Tom.. but i AM quite old grin

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 21:57:31

oh no doubt Emilie is very deserving but I really love Paloma


Paloma Faith should have won.

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 21:58:19

Well, i spose she had to win something.. but she has the personality of a puddle.

JillJ72 Wed 20-Feb-13 21:58:34

Used to want to adopt BF - he had the hush puppy look when singing Jealous Guy

LetUsPrey Wed 20-Feb-13 21:58:54

I love Mumford and Sons so much! Saw them last December in Manchester and they were amazing.

Should have won best album <biased> grin

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:59:20

The Wandies are going to win this, aren't they?

MrsJamin Wed 20-Feb-13 21:59:29

Oh bloody boring Emilie Sande sad

JillJ72 Wed 20-Feb-13 21:59:59



IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 22:00:11

personality of a puddle (snigger)

I'm going to use that for my next knock back grin

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 22:00:54

Bet Mat 'The hat' Cardle is sat at home sobbing into his horlicks.grin

RedPencils Wed 20-Feb-13 22:00:57

Is this a proper award or have they made this up so 1d can win something?

PatriciaHolm Wed 20-Feb-13 22:02:00

Well, at least one of their voices has broken...

MrsJamin Wed 20-Feb-13 22:02:03

Global Success Award? Gah, they just make these up as they go along...

TomDudgeon Wed 20-Feb-13 22:02:05

Am on Mumford and sons
Love them so much.

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 22:02:30

<whispers> red they might have made it upgrin

Now,old as i am, i bloody love Rizzle kicks. They are brilliant.

LetUsPrey Wed 20-Feb-13 22:02:43

Did they make that award up at the last minute because Wanderection didn't win anything? Or did I fast forward by that bit because I didn't care?

I keep trying to FF it but I'm up to date. Aarrrrgghhhh

LetUsPrey Wed 20-Feb-13 22:03:28

Cross-posts by lots! grin

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 22:03:52

Ah James trying to claw back some humour by scrapping the barrel.

They definitely need someone new next year.

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 22:05:38

Bugger Raahh i like them too.. Great personalities, and actually very clever.

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 22:06:48

Jelly- exactly- so young and talented, I saw a live show on tv at stupid o'clock one nigh, and was hooked. Very, very clever.

TomDudgeon Wed 20-Feb-13 22:08:13

I like rks too

Someone please explain to me the emili sande thing. I don't get her, so blah. Why is she so popular?

HazeltheMcWitch Wed 20-Feb-13 22:08:29

Did you know, if Emily Sande does not perform, an event cannot legally class itself as 'live'.

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 22:08:49

Ok- are they not doing a lifetime achievement thing? Or is it because it feels like Emilie has been around forever?

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 22:09:22

Hazel true. It's written in the Magna Carta.

LetUsPrey Wed 20-Feb-13 22:09:46

Is this really what they're finishing with?

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 22:09:47

(except she's Scottish, so maybe not)grin

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 22:10:00

So no life time achievement award?

What's the matter have they ran out of people who will accept it?

My favourite winners of it were the Pet Shop boys.

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 22:10:07

Hype, hype and a bloody good manager Tom?

She's going to sing me to sleep...

MrsJamin Wed 20-Feb-13 22:10:10

This is definitely the most forgettable Brits ever. Who is going to remember anything about the whole 2 hours tomorrow?

Lorelilee Wed 20-Feb-13 22:11:09

Yes Raah, that's the only thing that is stopping me from saying how dull she is. <in no way biased>.

ceebeegeebies Wed 20-Feb-13 22:11:19

Completely superficial but she looks like she has lost a lot of weight smile

JillJ72 Wed 20-Feb-13 22:11:30

Do we need more Harreeeeeee?

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 22:11:42

I'll remember this thread grin

HazeltheMcWitch Wed 20-Feb-13 22:12:23

Yet despite her ubiquity, I can't seem to spell her name blush

Am sure 2013 will bring me plenty more opportunity to learn.

RedPencils Wed 20-Feb-13 22:12:48

I quite like her.

She was on everything last year, hope her agent got a big Xmas bonus!

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 22:13:21

So now we get a re-cap?


MaybeOrnot Wed 20-Feb-13 22:13:33

Get Emilie out of my ears. There's something repulsive about her. Graham Norton seemed to think so too. It's very unlike him to be rude about former guests.

IamMummyhearmeROAR Wed 20-Feb-13 22:13:50

At least no Macca!

TomDudgeon Wed 20-Feb-13 22:14:26

Best thing about tonight Brit awards have been the comments on this thread
How shit was that

Raahh Wed 20-Feb-13 22:14:49

IamMummy -we are grateful for that, at least. grin

HazeltheMcWitch Wed 20-Feb-13 22:14:49

WHAT Maybe? I missed Graham being rude about Emilie. What went dahhhnn?

HazeltheMcWitch Wed 20-Feb-13 22:16:24

IS Natasha Kerplinsky pregnant again? And has she left any hairspray in the world for anyone else to use?

TomDudgeon Wed 20-Feb-13 22:16:36

The folk awards were so much better than this dross

Emili seems to have a nice enough voice. The songs are dull though.

PatriciaHolm Wed 20-Feb-13 22:17:34

I went to the previous two Brits and had a blast. I was a bit annoyed at the non-appearance of a ticket this year but to be honest I'm not any more!

Post Brits party was always good though. DH better smuggle me a bottle of champagne home...

Jellykat Wed 20-Feb-13 22:18:34

Bet they'll be an Emili/ Macca duet by the end of the year.. Its a conspiracy i tells ya, the NHS will save a fortune on sleeping tablets though.

Night all, thanks for the evenings entertainment smile

IamMummyhearmeROAR Wed 20-Feb-13 22:19:30

Repulsive? Really? Women really are rotten about one another.

SinisterBuggyMonth Wed 20-Feb-13 22:19:53

Wtf happened to the life time acheivement award?

And why wasnt Bruno Mars nominated for Best International male?

RedPencils Wed 20-Feb-13 22:21:08

What did Graham day? He was nice to her when she was in the show (mind you he always is).

MaybeOrnot Wed 20-Feb-13 22:23:57

Graham had a young singer on (can't remember her name),and he said,"you sound like a young Emilie Sande,as we know,everyone's soon replaced".

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Wed 20-Feb-13 22:31:39

When he said everyone is soon replaced I thought he was talking about him taking Wossy's Friday night spot.confused

RedPencils Wed 20-Feb-13 22:33:31

That's not so bad. Thought you were going to say she's crap.

Wow bitchy remarks about Emile, we just love to knock a girl doing well

TaggieCampbellBlack Wed 20-Feb-13 22:39:02

I like Emile.
Anyway. Same place next year? Will Wanders win anythig? Will there be a stage invasion? Will Cordon be ousted?
