Lots of BRITs gubbins

BRIT Awards

So, what did we learn about the BRIT Awards from the short essay the event’s organisers emailed over earlier today?

Well, ITV has signed up to broadcast the show for another three years. Mastercard will continue to pump in lots of cash for another three years. And AEG’s big fat Dome-by-the-Thames will continue to host the annual backslapping bash for another three years.

And as for BRITs 2014, James Cordon will host, again, but for the last time, so that’s some good news. The Arctic Monkeys and Katy Perry will both sing a song each, employing all their many vocal skills I’m sure. The actual awards have been designed by Irish hat man Philip Treacy, and look a bit (exactly) like this. No word yet on whether everyone attending this year will have to wear a special BRIT Awards hat like the one on the trophy. I do hope so.

As you can imagine, with all that info slipping out in one go, the press release sent out by BRITs HQ today had more than it’s fair share of quotes in it. But all eight people quoted basically said something along the lines of “Hurrah for the BRITs, boom!”

Roll on February.
