Awards shows are funny old things and maybe I'm a bit of an idiot for thinking it but The Brits could be brilliant. If the producers weren't obsessed with this below par format of average comedy and s

Think the only thing I've heard on either short list was the Arlo Parks album. Was about to say Dua Lipa too, but then realised I was getting confused with the Charli XCX album. 

No, it's the children who are wrong etc.

You know the world's upside down when the annual roasting of the BRITs gets completely overlooked.

I guess it figures really. Award shows are on their arse and the big, communal viewing experience doesn't exist in the same way anymore.

Sad face.

All this talk of how much the world will or should go back to the way it was, but I am 100% sure that the world is a better place when a group of people can come together on an internet forum in real time and laugh at a dancer dressed as a house falling off a stage.

Not the same when you're not all watching it on telly at the same time.

Ripping into Kiedis for the 100th time just doesn't have the same oomph.

You need to sack the awards shows, read Scar Tissue and reinvigorate your passion for roasting Anthony Kiedis. He truly doesn't deserve the apologists.

I'm on a Bob Marley biography at the moment. Scar Tissue is staring at me from the bookshelf, daring me to read it.

Watching the Brits every year to try and reach the highest I ever felt in my life: watching Justin Timberlake debut Mirrors on stage there in a live performance, almost a decade ago.

Nothing will ever beat the time Jarvis waggled his arse at Michael Jackson.

On the original point from Mattymooz though, the singles list is leaving me colder than a Pink Floyd reunion.

A couple of decent ones on the album list, but it really all feels a bit....meh.

Seems strange considering how stacked a lot of us felt 2020 was with good stuff. Clearly just a lot of it was stuff flying under the mainstream radar.

I always thought of it as a bit of a solo project, like Florence and the Machine.

No, not really paid much attention to them and honestly thought they were a band.
