Slight Complaints:

  • How Wretch 32 wasn’t nominated once, is incredible!
  • Professor Green should have had ‘Read All About It‘ nominated in Best Single
  • Example should have been in British Male Solo Artist
  • There’s probably a few more, but can’t think of them…

Well, I’m imagining I’ll be ‘live tweeting’ during the show – I doubt somehow I’ll be announced as a special writer and get to go backstage and all that, so I’ll be in bed watching. The show is live on ITV on 21st February, and will feature live performances from Ed Sheeran, Adele, Coldplay and Rihanna (plus others obviously) – and to top it all of, it’s hosted by the simply amazing, James Corden!
