Brit Awards to 'make amends' to Adele

Last year she was cut off mid-speech, but the organiser of The Brit Awards has hinted that the ceremony will make it up to Adele at tonight's ceremony.
In an unforgivable live TV botch-up by ITV, an elated Adele, who won six Grammys the previous week, was thanking the audience for her Brit Award for Best British Album when host James Cordon stopped her to introduce the 2012 Brits' grand finale from an unsuspecting Blur.
Her speech was cut short because the show was running over time but Brits chairman David Joseph has told The Guardian he couldn't understand "what was happening in that control booth".
"I can hint that something is going to happen this year to right that wrong," he added.
Adele is currently bookmakers' favourite to win the best British single prize, for her Bond theme Skyfall.
She's also in the running for a new award for "global success" which recognises exceptional international sales in 2012.
However, there are rumours that Adele may not make it to the Brits ceremony, as she is rehearsing for an appearance at the Oscars on Sunday night. But who could blame her for a no show, eh?
Artists who are confirmed to perform at the annual music awards bash include One Direction, Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, Mumford and Sons, Emeli Sandé and Robbie Williams.
Sandé is in the running for most prizes on Wednesday night, with four nominations including best female and best album. She has said that she intends to take six months off after tonight's bun fest.
There are also three nominations apiece for designer roots act Mumford and Sons and Mercury Prize winners Alt-J.
You can watch the Brit Awards live on ITV tonight from 8.00pm.
