yeah the thrills should have won best international newcomer by a country mile, i was fuming! and why shaun paul even gets nominated i dont know! and all the continuous bumming of the darkness did my head in!
Its deffo right you know! I too am slipping towards thirty and I'm sure I'm becoming my Dad! I had no interest at all in the Brits, and cant even be bothered to find out who won what!!! In another 5-10 years I can see me not knowing any group/band and just listening to my 'old stuff' that kids say is crap!!

I am closing in on the huge milestone of 18 and I too think the Brits are shit. Just there to make the pop-puppets feel good about themselves. The music industry is full off the same old shit, a good looking girl/lad being told how to sing, when to sing and probabley when to wipe their arse their that bloody pampered. Anything that is a little bit different is dismissed by the 'mainstream' music industry and the artist has to make their own way into it.
Re: The Darkness, I don't mind them too much to be honest. They are probabley a pop band disguised as a rock band I know, but at least they're something a bit different. If someone told me to dress up in spandex catsuit and sing like a woman I would have told them where to shove it, but these guys had the balls to do it.
Damine Rice should have been Best Breakthrough Artist as he actually earned it. Not like 33p a.k.a 'Look at me I'm Eminems mate'
I quite like the darkness, a breath of fresh air compared to some bands. And I can say I saw em when it only cost £3 to get in ;D Not too big on the way the pop world has claimed them for its own, will be interesting to see how they cope with it.

Quote me if I'm wrong but it is "The Brits".So why were there live performances by 50p,f#cking Outkast,Beyonce,and Justin "talentless c#nt" Timberlake gets to present Duran duran with their award.Whats going on?....and Busted?who gives a sh#t about them sons of a spunk bubble? F#cking readers of Smash Hits thats who.The whole show was terrible,and next year re-name it "The Yanks" or something.Toss
I agree with clintonbaptiste-its absolute toss-about 9 performences and 7 were yanks-(I saw this bit in the paper btw) as I refused watch it.....whatever happened too rock n roll??? I saw Justin (the darkness) was crying backstage after his award that he was given-probly from sum 12 year olds voting in smash hits as well. I cant stand Busted and their "punk" I cant stand any of them yankee performers and as for that soft cow Dildo-that woman gets right up me nose bland singing-toss words that means nothing to me
