Britted Out

The 2008 Brit Awards were hosted tonight, and the full list of winners can be found below. For reference, my original predictions/desires were listed at this post. Comparing the list of actual winners to my predictions, I’ve managed the astonishing total of one correct prediction out of the entire lot.

Well I never said I was an award show expert, now did I? Turns out the Brits like to choose the artists I prefer over the ones that are assumed to win. That’s why I think I was a Brit in a past life.

Despite all this, it was a great success for pop tonight, with Kylie, Mika, Adele, and Kate taking home a Brit and performances from Kylie, Mika, and Rihanna. The only letdown was the Girls Aloud loss, though it was to a formidable opponent, The Arctic Monkeys. The nod itself proved that the girls aren’t entirely unrecognized, and therefore made the night regardless. Now if only the Grammy’s were this fun, maybe people would tune in once in a while.
