Brits better than Grammys any day

Brits committee chairman Christian Tattersfield has said he thinks the UK music awards are way better than their US counterpart, the Grammys.

Christian told The Sun he didn't agree that the Brit Awards were the poor relation of the Grammys and thought the UK definitely had the better event.

He said: "I read some laughable article recently about how this year's Grammys line-up was just so much better than the one at the Brits.

"Well I disagree. What was so great about the Grammys line-up? There were a couple of collaborations that were interesting and Beyonce and Jay Z were exciting.

"But in general, people who write these articles want to attend the Grammys some time, then compare it to the Brits. To me, the Brits is way better because it is more interesting."

Christian also promised there would be no repeat of 2012's bungle when Adele was cut off mid-way through her acceptance speech.

He said: "You wouldn't want to make that mistake twice. There are definitely some safeguards in place. That's not going to happen on my watch."

Of tomorrow night's line-up, which includes Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Arctic Monkeys and collaborations between Lorde and Disclosure, Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers, and Rudimental and Bastille, he added: "There's never been this level of excitement and credibility in the acts before."
