Chig's pointless Brits predictions
Posted at 20:01.
My predictions and my choices if I were giving out the awards.
(Note to Mike - I've changed my mind about the international female since e-mailing these at lunchtime. Pointlessly, as it turned out.)
UPDATE: Five right and six wrong. I'll claim the two at the bottom to make it seven-six in my favour!
Paul Weller – MY PREDICTED WINNER The actual winner! (Showing that the flurry of bets which caused the bookies to stop taking wagers at the weekend may actually have been from people who knew something.) Also proving that a number one album counts for a lot more than two singles peaking at #19 and #28 last year.
The Streets – MY CHOICE
British Female Solo
Duffy – MY PREDICTED WINNER & MY CHOICE The actual winner!
British Breakthrough Act
Duffy - The actual winner!
The Last Shadow Puppets – MY CHOICE
Scouting For Girls
The Ting Tings – MY PREDICTED WINNERS (and my 2nd choice)
Coldplay – MY CHOICE
Elbow (My 2nd choice) The actual winners! Adding to their Mercury Prize.
Take That - MY PREDICTED WINNERS
British Live Act
Iron Maiden – MY PREDICTED WINNERS & MY CHOICE (I think the fanbase will have secured this, even though it’s Radio2 listeners voting) The actual winners! You can't stop the rock!
Scouting For Girls
British Single (Nominations reduced from ten to this five by listeners to commercial radio, who have been indoctrinated already with too much Scouting For Girls.)
Viva La Vida – Coldplay MY CHOICE
Mercy – Duffy - MY PREDICTED WINNER and my 2nd choice
The Promise – Girls Aloud (An easy third.) The actual winner! Good for them. Good job they performed it earlier...
Better In Time – Leona Lewis - RIDICULOUS. It's good, but not that good.
Heartbeat – Scouting For Girls - RIDICULOUS! How could anyone tell their singles apart? They've released five versions of the same song.
Mastercard British Album
Viva La Vida or Death And All His Friends – Coldplay – MY PREDICTED WINNER & MY CHOICE
Rockferry – Duffy The actual winner! A Duffy treble! Hasn't she done well?
The Seldom Seen Kid – Elbow
In Rainbows - Radiohead
We Started Nothing – The Ting Tings
Black Ice - AC/DC (Surprise winner?)
Fleet Foxes – Fleet Foxes
Day And Age – The Killers MY CHOICE
Only By The Night – Kings Of Leon MY PREDICTED WINNER The actual winner!
Oracular Spectacular – MGMT
The Annual Beck Nomination for International Male
Neil Diamond MY CHOICE (Yes, really!)
Kanye West The actual winner! How the hell did that happen?
Seasick Steve (Would be brilliant…) MY PREDICTED WINNER
Beyoncé - MY PREDICTED WINNER (Just, over P!nk & Katy Perry)
