Hosted by James Cordon the awards were good although I did expect to be laughing at jokes rather than the blueness of Robbie Williams’s ‘suit’. If you can really call it that.
Punctuated with performances by Justin Timberlake, Muse, Taylor Swift, One Direction, Robbie Williams, Ben Howard, Mumford and Sons and Emeli Sandé -the night was a success. Although, the same can’t be said for Ben Howard’s speeches. Stick to singing mate.
Simon Cowell was called a ‘beautiful bastard’ by James and Harry’s ‘magic stick’ got a shout-out from Sharon Osborne (who clarified that she was using a euphemism to refer to his ‘willy’). Great.
That’s a summary of the Brits 2013. Not bad. Not great. The biggest disappointment for me was seeing Plan B looking gutted as he was overlooked for awards. Don’t worry I still love you…
