That Brit Awards preview and predictions.

Not long now till the annual back-slapping celebration of the past British musical year. At this point I will attempt to predict who will win awards: bear in mind I usually and inevitably get them wrong. And remember just because I'm predicting the winners doesn't always mean I like them!

Best British Male Solo Artist: Jamie T/Mark Ronson/Mika/Newton Faulkner/Richard Hawley. Prediction to win: Mika.
Best British Female Solo Artist: Bat For Lashes/Kate Nash/KT Tunstall/Leona Lewis/PJ Harvey. Prediction to win: Leona Lewis.
Best British Group: Arctic Monkeys/Editors/Girls Aloud/Kaiser Chiefs/Take That. Prediction to win: Take That.
Best British Album: "Favourite Worst Nightmare" - Arctic Monkeys/"Spirit" - Leona Lewis/"Version" - Mark Ronson/"Life In Cartoon Motion" - Mika/"Beautiful World" - Take That. Prediction to win: "Life In Cartoon Motion" - Mika.
Best British Breakthrough: Bat For Lashes/Kate Nash/Klaxons/Leona Lewis/Mika. Prediction to win: Klaxons.
Best British Live Act: Arctic Monkeys/Kaiser Chiefs/Klaxons/Muse/Take That. Prediction to win: Take That.
Best British Single: From a shortlist I reckon this will be a straight fight between "Bleeding Love" by Leona Lewis and "Valerie" by Mark Ronson featuring Amy Winehouse.
Best International Male Artist: Bruce Springsteen/Kanye West/Michael Buble/Rufus Wainwright/Timbaland. Prediction to win: Kanye West.
Best International Female Artist: Alicia Keys/Bjork/Feist/Kylie Minogue/Rihanna. Prediction to win: Rihanna.
Best International Group: Arcade Fire/The Eagles/Foo Fighters/Kings of Leon/White Stripes. Prediction to win: Foo Fighters.
Best International Album: "Neon Bible" - Arcade Fire/"Long Road Out Of Eden" - The Eagles/"Because of the Times" - Kings of Leon/"X" - Kylie Minogue/"Echoes Silence Patience and Grace" - Foo Fighters. Prediction to win: Foo Fighters.

I'll be back here on Wednesday night with the results.
