Last night was Brits Music Award night....Yippeee.
The show was opened by irritating and squeaky Mika.His opening set was like watching Attention Defecit Hyperactivity Disorder set to music. He squeaked , he minced and I for one would like to slap the blighter until he stops.
The Rest of the show was ok , hosted by the entire Osbourne Family , altho dissapiontingly Ozzy was only shambling about for about two minutes , fluffing his lines and looking in totally the wrong direction....THATS WHAT WE CAME TO SEE , ther should have been more of it.
One of the highlights was Amy Winehouse's 'released from rehab' performances both as a guest slot in Mark Ronsons set and doing her own thing. The girl just has presence , from the improbably large and messy beehive , to the impossibly stick thin legs that look like they could snap at any moment , the 'I want to go to the toilet RIGHT NOW' dancing, to the fantastically rich and quirky voice
Undoutabley as Mr Gaskins has stated , she looks like she smells of piss , but the girl is a star . There were other performances the most notable were Rihana and the klaxons, Kylie and Leona Lewis. Mark Ronson did a great set and bizzarely won the Solo Male award even tho he arranges and produces rather than sings
My biggest bugbear about the whole thing , was wheeling out Paul McCartney for the closing set...... the man is 900 years old and as boring as hell , I know he has had a lot of simpering press coverage because he married old hoppity , but he is hardly relevant musically these days , and hasn't been for years.
