The 2009 BRIT Awards Looked Like This

Amrit Singh | February 18, 2009 - 6:25 pm

Tonight the British music industry packaged their self-image for all to YouTube. The nominations were very Duffy with a side of Coldplay, and Duffy wound up being the main dish, but poor Chris Martin & Band couldn’t follow their three-statue Grammy night with even a single award from their four nominations. Instead it’s [SPOILER] Kings Of Leon that’s the rock band the BRITs love. Biggest props went to Duffy, KoL, Pet Shop Boys, and Not Katy Perry Hello Kitty dress (although she has a cat named Kitty Purry and that’s funny). David Hasselhoff was there, Brandon Flowers came out on “It’s A Sin” during the Pet Shop Boys medley, obvs to both. The award show ended tonight around 11:30PM in the future in the UK, so clips and photos are now starting to spill their way through the internet. We’ve got ‘em alongside a full winner’s list and a guylinered Bono doing “Get On Your Boots” for hopefully the last time on television. Enjoy!
