The Brit Awards 2009

I’m very VERY excited! On Wednesday I will be going to The Brit Awards. I don’t care how un-cool some people think they are…I can’t wait. I have always wanted to go and this year I can’t quite believe I will be there! the-brits

The awards take place at Earls Court in London and are going out on ITV1 Live from 8pm presented by Gavin and Stacey’s Matthew Horne and James Corden as well as Kylie. It’s going to be so much better now they’re live, than it used to be when they were pre-recorded and broadcast the next day. I’m looking forward to seeing the live performances from Take That, U2, Kings of Leon and the Pet Shop Boys who have won the Outstanding Contribution to Music category. To see who else I will be rubbing shoulders with (and who else is performing and nominated) click here. I will let you know how I get on.

UPDATE: It was fantastic! Full on Red carpet action. Lots of great music and a very sore head by the next morning when I had to mission my way back to Birmingham.
