The Brits – Shouting at the TV

leave a comment »

I know it’s all a music business sham but all the same it’s always a compelling spectacle.

This year I spent it hanging out on the Word Magazine website where they were holding a running commentary discussion thread on it. Good fun. An online version of shouting at the TV.

Highlights.

  • Kylie looking like Debbie Harry circa 1978
  • The Arctic Monkeys acceptance speech consisting of a decoy duck and hunting horn.
  • Sharon Osbourne shouting “Piss off you bastard!” at Vic Reeves as he failed to announce the Arctic Monkeys as winners of something and then nobody switching her mic off as she commented on the Monkeys young farmers atire with a “what have they come as”
  • Amy Winehouse and Mark Ronson doing Valerie – top marks for the double neck Gibson SG.

Possibly the biggest car crash of a Brits since Sam Fox and Mick Fleetwood.

I’ll be back later with links once these highlights turn up on YouTube.
