BRITs 2014 Winners & Top 5 Moments

Last night’s Brits were flat. From the host, James Corden (who was hosting his 5th and final ceremony), to the performances, to the acceptance speeches – there were very few highlights.

Below are my top 5 moments from the night.

1. Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers
Pharrell was without his famous Vivienne Westwood hat for the ceremony but it made a comeback in the performance of the night. His performance with Nile Rodger was a great way to end the night. In hindsight the BRITs should have started with this performance.

2. Rudimental & Bastille’s performance.

3. Lorde & Disclosure’s performance

4. Speech of the night came from David Bowie – via Kate Moss  (wearing an outfit made from his Ziggy Stardust material).

Noel Gallagher presented the award. When he read out Bowie’s name he said to the audience, “You maniacs didn’t think David Bowie would actually be here. David Bowie wouldn’t do that. He’s too cool for this shit!”

Moss, who is Bowie’s “representative on Earth”, then went on to read a note from Bowie.

(No video footage is available as yet)

5. Harry Styles was MIA when One Direction won their Global Success Award.
As his 4 band mates took to the stage, Harry was not there for the start of it as he “was having a wee – the toilets are ages away”

About The Bellissimo Files

Hi, I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents! As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen! This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t. Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings. Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions. I also appear on TV3’s “Elaine” panel, talk movies on “Ireland AM” and you can sometimes hear me filling in on Moncrieff’s “Movies and Booze “(Newstalk) The Bellissimo Files is constantly evolving. Files (topics) will be added or deleted as time goes on. Feel free to read, watch, comment, share, and make suggestions for what you would like to see on the site. Sarina
