Well. Not too many surprises. Best Brit album sees Duffy, Elbow and Radiohead battle Coldplay and the f---ing Ting Tings, with Girls Aloud and Take That joining most of them in the best group category.
Nothing good in the best single category apart from Dizzee, and Will Young, Ian
Brown, Estelle and Beth Rowley popping up a little erroneously in the best male/ female categories.
Our hopes? MGMT for best international album and group, MIA for British female, Seasick Steve for best int male and Santogold for int female. Roll on Feb 18.
Florence and the Machine are great. Really great. Channeling some Joanna 'I've got a harp and I'm not afraid to use it' Newsom, she's just handed Scouting For Girls their pubescent bottoms on a plate with a stunning rendition of Dog Days Are Over.
Crumbs. Very deserving of her Critics Choice award, whatever it is and whoever it was who voted for it. Stay up, or in, to watch it.
(And if you can tell us who the "critics" are who vote for this stuff, you get a big gold star. Really.)
Well... We've traversed a semi-acoustic set from Scouting For Grrls (popular with the rambuctions crowd).
"How's my mic?" asks an off-camera shinyCotton. Ahh... The magic of tv.
Couple of surprises in the best international group and Brit male. Kings Of Leon AND ACDC?!! MGMT have a nod, which is OMH approved. The Streets - huzzah - and Ian Brown?? Has he even released an album this year?
