2009 Brit Award Nominees

Standard

Is it that time of year already?  One of the papers mentioned that there are no big surprises.  Suppose they are right, but still fun compared to similar award shows on this side of the pond so I will still act as though I care.  😉

Am happy to finally have a RHCP-free ‘Best International Act’ list (or was it ‘Best Live Act’ that they always seem to get)?  Aside from that…I’m rooting for The Verve.  Saw their V Fest performance recently and it was a-m-a-z-i-n-g.

The awards will take place February 18.  Set to play live:  Coldplay (of course), U2, Take That (um, is that w/ or w/o Robbie?), Kings of Leon, Pet Shop Boys (!!), Duffy.  Kylie will be a co-host.
