And the Winner is... The Brit Awards 2012

On Sunday night, the Brit Awards were held at London’s O2 Arena and once again it was Adele that was queen of the night. Winning Female Solo Artist and British Album of The Year for her album 21, we sure hope Adele has a large trophy room in her new home. Her album is set to sell bucket loads more, after the profile it has got lately, with sales currently at 17million, it is tipped the album will be expected to top 20m.

The UK equivalent of The Grammys was also a great night for newcomer Ed Sheeran, who won British Male Solo Artist of the year and British Breakthrough Act.
Lana Del Ray struggled to control her emotions as 25-year-old received the gong for International Breakthrough Act and new boyband sensation One Direction won Best British Single, as we predicted.
 SnapCacklePop crew didn’t do too badly with their predictions, getting 6 out of the 10 awards correct, however there a few surprises with no salute to Jessie J or even Lady Gaga. Perhaps Mother Monster was busy that night.
