Held at London’s O2, Adele, Justin Bieber and Coldplay will grace the event with more than stellar performances. Others who will be there too include The Weeknd, Little Mix, Jess Glynne and James Bay.
David Bowie will get a subdued tribute and rail-thin model Kate Moss will be handling that. She is a great impersonator of Bowie’s alter ego character, Ziggy Stardust. The clips and sound bytes of the show will appear on ITV at 8 pm today.
It is not a matter of who will be strutting their stuff at the Brit Awards. Rather the right question to ask is who isn’t showing what they have. Such class acts as Rihanna and Justin Bieber will be there in all their glory. Ant and Dec will be the main hosts too.
The trophies for the Brit Awards are designed by Pam Hogg. Rihanna’s bad habit of swearing all those cuss words might take a back seat this time around. That is because the bosses behind the show have warned her to be on her best behavior.
They don’t want the same thing which occurred in case of Kanye West’s performance last year. His use of the “N” word offended the rationality of many self-respecting blacks as well as whites. This time it will be Justin Bieber’s first time on the platform that is the Brit Awards.
Among the male solo artists nominated may be included Calvin Harris. The female solo artists nominated have Adele as a prime candidate not to mention Amy Winehouse. The best British group has Coldplay and Blur plus One Direction in its row.
The best producer may be Mark Ronson, according to Mirror. The breakthrough acts include Jess Glynne and Years & Years among the list. As for the album of the year, the credit may go to any one of the following: Adele, Coldplay, Florence + The Machine, James Bay and Jamie xx.
The best British single of the year has a great many singers and bands lined up to receive it. Adele, Ed Sheeran, Ellie Goulding and Little Mix are just a sample of the lineup.
This year at the Brit Awards there are many exciting things that will happen (or not happen). One of the biggest “What If’s” is whether Good Girl Gone Bad Rihanna will turn up for the event or not. She has a throat infection and may not be fit to attend the event.
The fans of many of the stars don’t want to see the same blunder occur again as occurred last year with Madonna and her troupe. She fell and then continued as if nothing had happened. Everyone could see though that the Material Girl had committed a big mistake.
You can bet on Adele this time though. She won’t be taking any chances with the faulty equipment. The experience of having her voice falter due to technical glitches at the Grammy Awards was one heartbreak that she is hardly over.
She said that she cried at home when she relived that embarrassing moment in her mind, according to TheGuardian. The best international group category includes U2 in it. They just might bag the trophy. There are several other contender besides them as well.
The scant recognition given to the Grime Scene of Black Artists in the UK was a shame indeed. It shows that racism and exclusivity still reign supreme in even the most advanced societies on earth. The lack of diversity is a gap in the golden record of Britain and it is the same case for the Oscars which will be airing soon in the United States.
Getting back to the awards’ other highlights, Justin Bieber is another pop star that you can bet on like Adele. He has his mojo and he can entertain crowds like no other. The young man is full of spunk and his ambition knows no limits.
Like the recent Lionel Richie tribute, a tribute to David Bowie lies in the program. David died a month ago of cancer. He was well into his old age. If ever there was a creative and offbeat person with prodigious output in music and cultural memes, it is David Bowie.
There are only two non-white acts that have been included in the nominees for this year’s Brit Awards. This is a crying shame. Racism is a scourge that ought to be eradicated as fast as possible from the populace, according to Mirror. It prevents real talent from being recognized and appreciated. Not just freedom of opportunity but freedom of outcome ought to be available to the decent law-abiding citizens of a just and ideal society.
Meanwhile, Ed Drewett who is the man behind Little Mix and One Direction’s songs has criticized the awards as being ignorant of new songwriters, according to BBC.
While Ed had received the due recognition for writing the lyrics to Black Magic, many of his fellow songwriters have been given short shrift. He spoke out against the injustice that was taking place.
On the other hand, if by any chance Rihanna does touchdown in Britain for the awards, she will be performing her latest single titled Work with Drake, according to TheSun.
Rihanna is one sexy babe with a voluptuous body and gorgeous dusky looks to match. She brings on the heartbreak and may even give many old wheezers who missed the sexual revolution a heart attack or two.
The band One Direction will not present a united front this time at the show. Two or three of its members will be missing from the scene, according to TheSun. It looks like their time away from regular tours has left them in a state of disunity.
Finally, the main highlight is regarding that Bad Boy of Pop, Justin Bieber. He arrived late for the show and was dressed in a very casual manner. Bieber had on him a loose fitting T-shirt and a baseball cap.
He looked to be in a pensive mood and brooding over what appeared to be something close to his heart. Justin prepared for his performance before the awards began.
The Canadian’s platinum blonde hair was visible from beneath his baseball cap. To imagine that he began his career as a YouTube phenomenon. Fame just happened to him and he seems to attract prepubescent girls whose hormones are going haywire at the drop of a hat.
Bieber had a drink or two at a pubhouse before he wrapped things up for the day. He was seen requesting his team to fetch him a Nando’s takeaway for fuel before the rehearsal, according to DailyMail.
Justin has been known to get into fights and trouble by his wild shenanigan ways. This time around though he kept a low profile. He traveled the roads of the UK with his huge bodyguard.

Bieber was trying to appear like a normal citizen instead of a VIP. He has arrived in Britain via a private jet and had his entourage with him following his every move to ensure that nothing went wrong.
