Brit Awards 2009

. Wednesday, February 18

Tonight is the annual industry back scratch awards known to bored ITV viewers as 'The Brits'. James Cordon and Mat Horne are presenting with Kylie Minogue involved somehwhere along the line. You can see the nominees here. Performances are due from Lady GaGa, Kings of Leon, Slayer and Girls Aloud- I made one of those up, guess which one. I'm not being an indie snob about the awards- they will be a lot more fun than the Mercury's that's for sure but they do tend to be a bit on the safe side. Below are my predictions and wishes- don't quote me on any of them, it could be a Mark Lawrenson esque disaster.

If i was in charge

British Album - In Rainbows, first decent Radiohead in a while IMHO

Group - meh

British single - Laura Marling with Cross your fingers/crawled out of the sea

Male Solo - meh

Breakthrough Act - nice call, saw Late of The Pier recently and was very impressed

Live Act - Iron Maiden only cause they do their shtick well, glad not TingsTings cause they are rubbish live, haven't seen Foals yet though

International Album - KOL album is a let-down, way too clean sounding and uninventive for me. Dear Science by TOTR followed closely by Dig Lazarus Dig.

International Group - Black Keys. Awesome albums, awesome live, awesomely unpretentious. Failing that, Sigur Ros.

International Male - Seasick Steve, yes his shtick got old quickly but they're all boring.

International Female - Ladyhawke, though Soko is fun.
