The show is an annual presentation of accolades in pop music awards which explains the big winners of the night.
Geri Halliwell and Melanie Brown accepted a gong for Best Brit Performance Of 30 Years for their 1997 performance of “Who Do You Think You Are?” (Yes, a gong, like the Gong Show except in this case you want one.) This might be an annual award, but it sounds like a made up reason to give the Spice Girls something. The producers where probably hoping for a reunion performance. The pair looked ready for a show in coordinated white outfits and Melanie B showed off a new shave hair cut. Victoria Beckham is likely still in New York basking in the success of her latest fashion show.
Robbie Williams won the Outstanding Contribution To Music Award and performed a medley of his big hits to celebrate the honor. Always up for entertaining at a boring show, Lily Allen accepted her first Brit Award for Best Female Solo Artist in a giant orange wig.
“I only wore this orange wig because I thought I would make it more difficult for the cameramen to find me and catch my disappointed face,” says the performer who had four nominations last year and walked away with nothing. Note to Allen, looking like a used q-tip is not low profile. The singer switched to a black bob wig for the backstage photo with her gong (he he) and went from pilgrim by day to S&M by the hour at night for her performance. To be fair, she did embrace on pants.
