Fantasy Brits Awards 2008

It is that time of year when thoughts turn to Mick Fleetwood and Sam Fox and the horror that is the annual British music gong-fest, The Brits. So whilst PJ Harvey looks forlornly at her obligatory, annual nomination and Bruce Springsteen powers up the old satellite link up in his back garden, I thought I'd do my best impression of Paul Gambaccini and give you my predictions for the night.
