The Brit Awards 'To Make Amends With Adele'

Chairman says the ceremony will right the wrongs of last year...

The Brit Awards will finally make amends with Adele tonight (February 20) after her speech was cut-off by host James Corden during last year's show.

Corden famously interrupted the Someone Like You singer as she made her acceptance speech for British Album to introduce Blur - leaving Adele to stick up her middle finger in anger.

Brits chairman David Joseph has now claimed the mishap - which he says was a mistake - will be put right at tonight's ceremony.

He told The Guardian: "How can you take an artist who has made the biggest cultural impact musically this country has seen globally for some time and cut her off in the middle of her speech?

"I very much to this day question what was happening in that control booth."

Joseph added: "I can hint that something is going to happen this year to right that wrong."

It is thought that Adele could receive the new Global Success gong at the bash later, as well as being the bookies' face to win Best Single for Skyfall.

However, the BBC adds that Adele may not be present at this year's ceremony as she is busy rehearsing for her comeback performance at The Oscars on Sunday (February 24).
