I was going to bitch about the Brits in my journal but I'll vent my spleen here instead.

FIRSTLY what was up with the sound breaks? "Because of bad language"?!! I don't think so! It was cutting out during guitar solos, when Fearne Cotton was speaking (and I think she might just be relied upon to not launch into a four letter tirade) and best of all when Liam Gallagher had the microphone in his hand (and come on Liam uses swear words like people use air) they don't block out any of the swearing preferring instead to wait 60 seconds till Noel starts speaking and THEN cut the sound even though it didn't seem to me like he swore. And why bother cutting out the bad language anyway? OK before 9 I can understand but as soon as it got post watershed why bother? I mean the instant it hits 9.01pm British dramas tend to full of drugs, sex and bad language but God forbid that we might hear someone who isn't an actor saying f**k!

SECONDLY, nothing happened. Russell had been getting at Noel all night but when it came to collecting the award Noel seemed fine with him. Russell was banging on about Liam's sexual allure (again) and I thought this has got to get a reaction. And it did! Liam hugs him and says "You alright mate?". Amy Winehouse didn't do anything controversial either. Where's Jarvis Cocker when you need him?!

THIRDLY, The only reason that I bothered to watch- Oasis. Now I'd just about gotten over the shock of Liam deciding to have his hair in the style of Worzel Gummidge when they started to perform. Liam's voice wasn't at its best but I've heard him far worse but what really peed me off was that just as Liam's voice started to warm up and sound a little bit less like someone perpetually bringing up phlegm the credits roll and the show ends. Unless you have ITV 2 (I don't) where you can watch the rest of Oasis's set (I can't). I was so annoyed especially as I knew Noel was going to sing the next song. Why couldn't they just do what they did every other year and keep going till 10.30???

And I agree with you pgv. I wouldn't have awarded Orson anything either.
The sound cutting out was a technical problem, they admitted so...I got to see the rest of Oasis' set

I think it has been one of the dullest Brits in ages, there wasn't any one performance that stood out.

RHCP were good, also there is a 15 sec delay from the live broadcast, they do something similair to BB. Thats why some speech was filtered.

...good for you

And did Liam's voice get any better?

BTW, I've just been reading some stuff about the Brits. Apparently one year KLF were performing live and fired a machinegun into the crowd (it was loaded with blanks...just thought I'd make that clear ) . Somehow all the other eventful Brits just pale in comparison to that!

I've just seen a picture of Joss Stone,

What an awful, awful dress. Mariah Carey would be proud.

Yay to The Killers, Muse and Amy Winehouse

A wee bit, but Noel made up for it in general

Scissor Sisters were alright but I Don't Feel Like Dancing isn't the most spectacular opener in the world
