The Brits Performances
Klaxons and Rihanna go for lasers, Amy shouts out to her Blakey and (of course) Mika camps it up
The Brits hosted some extravagant live performances last night at the Earls Court venue.
Mikas performance seemed to last forever without his usual crew of dancers on stage. He sung a medley of hits in that high-pitched shriek while bouncing alone with crazy coulourful backdrops.
Luckily Beth Ditto popped into the show wearing a bright a pink dress to sing her hit Standing In The Way Of Control.
Rihanna and Klaxons collaborated on the biggest track of the past 12 months- Umbrella. As her backing band the trio were sadly upstaged by LOADS of lasers.
Though it must have been cool for Klaxons to play with a huge US star wed rather have seen them play Golden Skans alone.
For us Mark Ronson- winner of Best British Male despite being a bit American- stole the show with Adele and one Amy Winehouse.
Though looking nervous the Chasing Pavements singer belted out God Put A Smile On Your Face and was utterly charming in every way. Were not big Merriweather fans but Amy and Marks Valerie (backed by a lot of brass) was also great.
Wino also belted out Love Is A Losing Game in her usual loose vocal style. Its also becoming tradition that she shouts out her imprisoned partner when playing live and Amy didnt let us down.
Make some noise for my husband, my Blake, she said to the crowd.
Kaiser Chiefs performed Ruby in their standard way despite the distraction of a mini-city rising around them. Kylies performance looked the best even if the backing track often overrode her live vocals.
Paul McCartney- who won the Outstanding Contribution prize- closed the show in the best way possible with Hay Jude. Altogether now Na Na Na
