THE FIRST MONSTER OF THE NEW YEAR, AND THE NOMINATIONS FOR THE BRITS ARE OUT. IS THE GINGE HAPPY WITH WHO HAS BEEN NOMINATED? ONLY ONE WAY TO FIND OUT.......
LET ME CAST MY EYE OVER SOME OF THEM.
BEST BRITISH GROUP
ALL SAINTS    COLDPLAY   MOLOKO
RADIOHEAD   TOPLOADER
IT HAS BEEN A VERY POOR YEAR FOR MUSIC. AND I WOULD AGREE WITH TWO OF THOSE. COLDPLAY AND RADIOHEAD. AT LEAST ALL OF THESE HAVE RELEASED ALBUMS IN THIS YEAR. I HAVE NO IDEA WHY TOPLOADER ARE THERE. THERE MUSIC IS NOT ALL THAT AND NOT ONE HIT RECORD TO TALK ABOUT. MOLOKO ARE STILL RIDING ON THE BACK OF THIER FIRST HIT. AND ALL SAINTS, ARE THEY REALLY THE BEST BAND? THE GINGE TIPS EITHER RADIOHEAD OR COLDPLAY, ALL DEPENDS ON WHETHER THE JUDGES ARE TRYING TO BE TRENDY THIS YEAR, IF SO IT'S RADIOHEAD.
BEST BRTISH MALE SOLO ARTIST
BADLY DRAWN BOY   CRAIG DAVID   DAVID GRAY
FATBOY SLIM   ROBBIE WILLIAMS
THERE ARE ONLY TWO PEOPLE THIS AWARD DESERVES TO GO TO. AND THOSE ARE THE ONES WHO ACTUALLY WRITE THIER OWN STUFF. BADLY DRAWN BOY & DAVID GRAY. FATBOY SLIM JUST REMIXES OLD TUNES, DOES THAT REALLY MAKE HIM BEST MALE SOLO? ROBBIE WILLIAMS JUST CHURNS OUT THE SAME OLD STUFF, TIME TO CHANGE? CRAIG DAVID IS THE MOST OVER RATED ARTIST TO COME FROM LAST YEAR. SO THE GINGE CROSSES HIS FINGERS AND BEGS THAT IT'S DAVID GRAY AFTER HIS BRILLIANT ALBUM BUT SAYS IT WILL BE BADLY DRAWN BOY WITH NO COMPLAINTS.
BEST FEMALE SOLO ARTIST
DIDO   SADE   PJ HARVEY
JAMELIA   SONIQUE
THIS IS ALWAYS A VERY WEAK ONE. BUT THIS YEAR IT IS THE WORST I HAVE EVER SEEN IT. DIDO? CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME WHAT SHE HAS DONE OTHER THAN THE BACKING TRACK ON AN EMINEM SINGLE. HER NEW SINGLE IS FROM THIS YEAR BEFORE YOU START NOT LAST. SADE SORRY NOT HEARD ONE THING FROM HER IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS. PJ HARVEY WELL SHE BROUGHT OUT AN ALBUM ABOUT A TWO MONTHS AGO. SO THE SHOOT OUT IS BETWEEN JAMELIA AND SONIQUE. NIETHER REALLY DESERVE THE TITLE BEST FEMALE SOLO DO THEY? THE GINGE TIPS SONIQUE.
BEST INTERNATIONAL GROUP
THE CORRS   SANTANA   SAVAGE GARDEN
U2   WESTLIFE
THERE IS ONLY ONE WINNER FROM THIS ONE. U2, AND IF THERE IS ANYONE OUT THERE WHO THINKS ANY OF THE OTHER FOUR HAVE DONE ANYTHING BETTER THIS YEAR THEY  DESERVE TO HAVE THEIR EARS CHOPPED OFF. BUT THIS IS THE BRITS WHERE 90% OF THE TIME THE REAL WINNERS DON'T WIN. AND WITH U2 ALREADY GETTING THE OUTSTANDING AWARD THIS ONE WILL GO TO WESTLIFE.
BEST BRITISH ALBUM
COLDPLAY   CRAIG DAVID   DAVID GRAY
RADIOHEAD   ROBBIE WILLIAM
S
IF CRAIG DAVID WINS THIS WITH THE COMPANY HE KEEPS IN THIS ONE I WILL SHOOT MYSELF. THERE IS NO WAY HIS AVERAGE ALBUM COMPARES TO ANYTHING COLDPLAY, RADIOHEAD & DAVID GRAY HAVE DONE. THE SAME GOES FOR ROBBIE WILLIAMS. NOTHING TO DO WITH BIAS, BUT THEY ARE JUST NOT IN THE SAME LEAGUE. I CAN'T SERIOUSLY BE ALONE WITH THAT THOUGHT CAN I? SO WHO DO I GO FOR? A SOLO ARTIST NEVER WINS THIS AWARD AND WON'T AGAIN THIS YEAR. DAVID GRAY'S ALBUM WHITE LADDER HAS STILL BEEN MISSED BY SO MANY PEOPLE. BUT IT'S WORTHY OF BEING NOMINATED. COLDPLAY'S DEBUT ALBUM IS VERY GOOD BUT OTHER THAN THE SINGLES NOT GREAT. AND REGULAR MONSTER READERS KNOW WHAT I THINK ABOUT KIDA BY RADIOHEAD. OK COMPUTER WAS BEATEN TO THIS AWARD BY THE EXTREAMLY OVER RATED URBAN HYMS BY THE VERVE. SO SURLY THEIR TIME IS NOW? THIS IS THE BEST PIECE OF WORK IN THIS GROUP AND IF YOU ARE TELLING ME THAT THE CRAIG DAVID OR ROBBIE WILLIAMS ALBUMS REALLY ARE BETTER THEN YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR EARS. BUT AGAIN ALL DEPENDS ON WHETHER THE JUDGES THIS YEAR WANT TO BE TRENDY. IF SO IT'S RADIOHEAD DOING THE DOUBLE IF NOT THEN IT GOES TO CRAIG DAVID.
