The Brit Awards 2013




During Wednesday evening’s Brit Awards, more than 6.5 million people sat through what can only be described as a lacklustre ceremony.

Once again, anybody who’s listened to the radio at any point in the past year would’ve been able to predict most of the winning acts. Emeli Sandé, who many ‘Twitterers’ describe as being “Britain’s most overrated singer,” picked up two awards; Mumford & Sons, whose second album was the fastest-selling of last year, won best band; and for the newly-created award of global success, who else but One Direction. Of course, it wouldn’t be the Brit awards without Coldplay, so they took the award for best live act.

There’s no denying that these acts aren’t talented – that’s evident from their success – but do we really need an awards ceremony which serves only to confirm what we already know? Surely we’d all prefer to see talented, but lesser-known artists receive recognition for their accomplishments in the music industry in the last 12 months.

But even with another utterly predictable line-up, you might expect James Corden – star of Gavin and Stacey – to liven up the evening and make the show worth watching. Sadly, that wasn’t the case. He spent much of the night apologising for last year’s shenanigans surrounding Adele (who chose to stay away from the awards this year) and mentioning the ceremony’s sponsors at every given opportunity.

So, even though the show attracted its biggest television audience for a decade, things need to change next year!
