Brit Awards 2015 Gossip

Hi VIPs! The biggest event in the British music calendar -The Brit Awards – is coming to the O2 Arena on 25 February. It’s just been announced that Madonna is performing for the first time ever in 20 years and that Ant and Dec will take over from the previous year’s host James Corden. They may even sing their 90s hit Lets Get Ready to Rumble. Nostalgia!

The nominations were read out at a celebrity event at the ITV studios and were mixed up with performances by Jessie Ware, FKA Twigs and Clean Bandit. I have all the goss and performance videos for you here. Let’s start with the performances and my favourite was Clean Bandit, the band of the summer:

Jessie Ware performed You and I Forever

FKA Twigs sang Hide. It’s the first time I’ve seen her live and she was bewitching (and a bit scary on stage)
