Mika, our favourite pop star du moment, has cleaned up at the Brit nominations bagging no fewer than four of the buggers: Best Male, where he’s up against the likes of Mark Ronson and Newton Faulkener; Best British album; British Breakthrough Act; and Best British Single for ‘Grace Kelly’.
But would it be churlish to ask why he’s not in Best Live Act, which is full of a bunch of boring looking guitar players when Mika actually has fat girls and animal suits live on stage?
The other acts to get four nominations were…
Leona Lewis (Female, Album, Single, Breakthrough – so she’s up against Mika in three categories) and Take That (Live, Album, Single [‘Shine’] and Group).
Meanwhile, Kylie’s prolly going to get Best International Female as she’s only up against the likes of Bjork and Alicia Keys and she’s recovered from cancer, while another me-me-me fave, Adele, has already bagged her Critics’ Choice Award. Sir Paul of McCartney will be getting a Lifetime Achievement Award (does that mean he’s now free to die?), while Girls Aloud are up against Take That in the Best Group thing.
Should be a good year, what with Mika and Kylie performing (do you like how we can say that without any snidery at all?) and with Sir Paul taking the stage at the end of the evening it means everyone can nip out early to get their bus.
