Bumford and Sons.

There's very little point in getting worked up over the Brit awards.  Every industry simply has to have a ceremony where the biggest successes of the year are celebrated, if only to ensure Jimmy Carr can keep stashing his money offshore.

This said, Mumford and Sons in three categories, including best album?  Really? Really?  And Paloma Faith in any category at all?  Thank heavens for small mercies: the Vaccines are completely ignored, as is Nicki Minaj.  Just a shame the same can't be said for Muse.

And then there's the nomination for Amy Winehouse.

That's just really tacky, isn't it? No one can seriously claim Lioness is anything other than what it is, which is a posthumous album cobbled together from the scraps that went unused previously. Pay tribute to her by all means, but not by pretending she was in any way one of the best solo artists of last year. That said, I'd take her winning over Paloma or Emeli Sande.
