First of all, the new statue by Vivienne Westwood looks so ridiculously cheap.

Moving on...

British Female Solo Artist: Ellie Goulding, Laura Marling Ellie is damn awful. Terrible voice, it pains my ears. This category has Marling written all over it. She SHOULD win it.

British Breakthrough Act: Ellie Goulding, The XX Wait what? Horrendous voice is now a breakthrough act? Here's hoping The XX gets it.

International Female Solo Artist: Alicia Keys, Katy Perry, Kylie Minogue, Rihanna, Robyn Robyn should win it but we all know it most likely is going to Rihanna/Perry. :shrug:

Most, if not all of these predictions will be horribly wrong.

Mark Ronson....does he even sing in his songs?
Example should have been nominated for best male

Who the heck is Rumer and Biffy Glyblah?

If Cheryl Cole wins either of the awards she's nominated for, the Brits will become even more meaningless than they already are. She's easily the least deserving/least talented of the entire bunch.

I expect Tine Tempah to take Best Male and Ellie Goulding to take Best Female...her voice is simply stunning and her songs pretty captivating. I just pray Take That don't win anything , I am positively sick of seeing their wrinkled faces on television.

the category is called "British Male Solo Artist", not "British Male Singer".

None of his songs released this year was a "solo" effort.
Every single one of them had some sort of collaboration.

Surprisingly JLS haven't been nominated for anything, neither has Lady Gaga :unsure:
but they both did win awards last year.

Neither Gaga nor JLS has released an album in the past year, hence they are not nominated.

^ JLS did release an album last year, Lady Gaga didn't though.
Doesn't matter though they won awards last year.

Jan 14th, 2011, 09:05 PM
Did they? :spit: Well that passed me by.

It's a little bizarre that JLS were snubbed then, IMO. I'm not exactly sure that The Brits like to put in too many 'boy' bands so to speak, perhaps why they only nominated Take That? :shrug: I don't know.

Her album was out though, she released 2 singles (3 if you count Dance in the Dark) and toured for the whole year including the UK.

That won last year though so she isn't eligible with the same album.
