The BRITs Awards with MasterCard will return to The O2 on Wednesday the 25th February for their fifth time and will be broadcast live on ITV.
2008 – Foals and Duffy
The first year of the Critics’ Choice saw both Foals and Duffy nominated alongside Adele. Both have enjoyed incredible success, with one particular highlight being Foals transforming the usually sedate Royal Albert Hall into a frenzied rock amphitheatre last March.
Little Boots has wowed the world since her Critics’ Choice nomination with her incredible live show which includes a Tenori-on and Stylophone; while White Lies have released three albums which have all charted in the Top 5 - their debut To Lose My Life… going to No. 1.
Both of these acts were unlucky to miss out to Ellie Goulding at the turn of the decade but despite this have still managed to cement themselves as household names. Marina & the Diamonds is currently working on her third album, as are Delphic who will be hoping to top the success of Good Life which was chosen as one of the official tracks of the London 2012 Olympics.
