The Brit Awards 2012 – Roundup!0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:34 pm

After another outstanding and fascinating year within the ever-evolving music industry, it was time to join comedian James Corden, in order to celebrate the success of various music artists from all over the globe as ITV broadcasted the 32nd edition of The Brit Awards last night!

To begin, I think it would be fair to say what an incredible evening; there were some excellent live performances alongside the celebration of various different music artists’ achievements over the past year. The show kicked off at 8pm on ITV1 with Coldplay performing their brand new single, ‘Charlie Brown’ – well, I can’t say I am a hardcore fan of theirs myself but it was an excellent choice of an act to open with! The crowd were up off their feet, the atmosphere at The 02 Arena looked absolutely phenomenal! Later performances included ‘No Light, No Light’ by Florence and the Machine, ‘Heart Skips a Beat’ by Olly Murs featuring the up and coming Rizzle Kicks, the exceptional Ed Sheeran with ‘Lego House’, Noel Gallagher with ‘AKA…. What a Life!’, the singing sensation Adele with ‘Rolling in the Deep’, Bruno Mars with a rather unique performance of ‘Just the Way You Are’ and Rihanna with a rather messy ‘We Found Love’. Up until that point, I’d say the entertainment was the best it’s been for a number of years now, it’s a shame that Blur came along to close the show and totally ruined it…

The evening also included tributes to two legendary music artists, who sadly passed away within the last year – Amy Winehouse and Whitney Houston. Video tributes were shown towards the talented two, celebrating their contribution to music. Amy sadly passed away last summer at the age of 27, and Whitney Houston just eleven days ago on 11th February 2012, aged 48, shortly before she was due to make an appearance at the 2012 Grammy Awards.

Right, let’s now move onto the nominees and winners for each award given out during the evening. The winner for each award is written at the top of each list below, and we’ve also bolded them for you.

Outstanding Contribution to Music Award

So, the awards concluded with Adele winning “Mastercard British Album of the Year”, the star went up onto the stage in accept her award, and mid-speech was cut off by host James Corden who announced that she would have to stop as time was running out. Angrily, Adele directed a rude hand gesture towards the producers of the show. ITV later apologised and Corden seemed relatively upset, revealing that he was against the decision of interrupting the star but was forced to do so by a senior member of the production team.

The evening was then closed with a “mini-concern” from Blur… and how awful was that!? I wondered to myself, “How the heck can they cut off Adele for this rubbish!!” – but they did, and for the final ten minutes of the show, viewers were forced to watch four has-beens attempt to “rock out” on stage.

That’s pretty much everything from The Brit Awards… until next year of course! Did you attend or watch the show on TV? Do you think the right people won? Were you shocked at some of the acts that picked up certain awards? Give us your feedback via the comments system below!
