Best Of BRITish Music

By bzbeth 20 Feb 2018

Award season is upon us...

And after the recent drama from the Grammys (I'd say it was one of the worst yet) what we really need to be talking about is the upcoming 38th Brit Awards!

The Brits are OUR Grammys. They’re our chance to make sure the deserved singers get their recognition.

Join me as I take a look back over the last few Brit Awards and discuss if the winners of some of the major Brit categories deserved their trophy!

2017

BRITISH ALBUM OF THE YEAR

Who won?
 Blackstar by David Bowie
Deserved? Yes.
The late great British music ICON David Bowie posthumously won the big award for his final record Blackstar. 

BRITISH SINGLE OF THE YEAR

Who won?
 Shout Out To My Ex by Little Mix
Deserved? Yes.
This hit is Little Mix at their finest it was an instant catchy classic and the band’s first ever Brit!

BRITISH FEMALE SOLO ARTIST

Who won?
 Emeli Sandé
Deserved? No.
No songs Emeli Sandé released over the last couple of years were hits and she never seems to do anything memorable. 

2016

BRITISH ALBUM OF THE YEAR

Who won?
 25 by Adele
Deserved? Yes.
Her third album was so long awaited, so hyped and she really delivered. It’s an essential album for any pop fan and such a worthy winner. 

BRITISH SINGLE OF THE YEAR

Who won? Hello by Adele
Deserved? Yes.
She’d not released music since 2012 and it was the perfect way to come back into our ears. No one else nominated had a chance!

BRITISH FEMALE SOLO ARTIST

Who won? 
Adele
Deserved? YES.
Adele owned the Brits this year and that is the end of that.

2015

BRITISH ALBUM OF THE YEAR

Who won? X by Ed Sheeran
Deserved? No.
It was a really poor category - there wasn’t a single female artist nominated. Sam Smith should have won the Brit.

BRITISH SINGLE OF THE YEAR

Who won? Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson (feat. Bruno Mars)
Deserved? Yes.
It’s one of the best pop songs of the decade, it smashed the charts and deserved all the success it got. 

BRITISH FEMALE SOLO ARTIST

Who won? Paloma Faith
Deserved? Yes.
2015’s British Female Solo Artist was a really strong category but Paloma's vocals and sweeping orchestrations that she’s known never fail to impress.

With only a day until the 2018 Brit Awards, I'm looking forward to seeing who wins and the performances. These are my predictions:

Let's see what happens!
