On 21 February the BRIT awards will be taking place again. You might remember last year when Adele gave her first performance of Someone Like You, you know, the one that had everyone captivated and started her along the road of extraordinary success that she’s enjoyed this past year.
There’s one award that we know the result of before the ceremony airs on TV and that’s the Critic’s Choice Award. It has a habit of choosing the next big thing in British music. I mean look at its history: Florence and the Machine, Adele, Jessie J and Ellie Goulding (actually to be fair I’m not a fan of the last one).
I’m afraid, as is my trend lately, that this will be another random and possibly vague post (I am so close to finishing my essay and kind of don’t want to lose my train of thought).
I don’t have much to say other than I’m going to see Florence and the Machine in Birmingham in March, my mum bought the ticket for me as a Christmas present and then couldn’t keep it a secret.

Considering I didn’t even tell him about her tour in the spring this was especially surprising news.

I mean it’s not like they actually add any extra ounce of wisdom to you once they make their way through. Sorry for the moan, but I needed to get it out there….kind of like my teeth.
And one last thing. Congratulations Katie Leung (Cho Chang from Harry Potter) for landing her debut role on a stage. She’s going to be playing author Jung Chang (seems like she’s stuck with that surname) in a production called Wild Swans.
Anyway, I’m off to go finish that essay, it’s due in on Friday and I have one last tutorial with my lecturer tomorrow. I’m hoping he doesn’t tear it apart like he has both other times I’ve seen him…apparently he does it to everyone.
I have been waiting for something new from Florence for ages. Lungs was phenomenal and so was her performance at the BRITs, but she’s been a bit quiet since, I assume to focus on the new album. Continue reading
