Pop Parties: The Brit Awards 2009 Launch & Nominations!

Pop Parties: The Brit Awards 2009 Launch & Nominations!

Last night FabUK and I attended The Brit Awards 2009 launch party and nominations announcement show at the Roundhouse in London, where we watched some great performances from Florence and the Machine, Scouting For Girls and Gabriella Cilmi. The event was hosted by Fearne Cotton who looked absolutely gorgeous in her studded black dress, and kept the audience entertained between filming segments of the televised show. Lovely Florence threw flowers out into the audience before her performance, Scouting For Girls got the crowd jumping around with "She's So Lovely" and I spied the new Skins cast, including Kaya Scodelario, dancing in the audience.

The reason for all the fun was the announcement of the nominations and performers for the night itself, which takes place on February 8 at Earls Court. Duffy and Coldplay led the pack with four nods each, and Chris Martin and the boys, Take That, U2, Kings of Leon, Duffy, Girls Aloud and the Pet Shop Boys will be performing at this year's ceremony. So make sure you check out all the nominations under the cut, and let me know what you think!
