AdeleThe BBC music awards were announced last night in an exercise that seemed to be very much aimed at the comfy chair and cardigan corner of the music world.

In one of those pyrotechnic, flashbulb extravaganas that sees a nation yawning at the TV whilst showbiz gets its hour of fun all manner of oddly named million selling acts that most people have never actually  heard- like Hozier – collected gongs.

The fact that the flashing lights celebfest where hardly any of the winners even turned up was presented by the music-lite Chris Evans tells you everything you need to know about the dickie bow and caviare affair – the only really quirk was Adele winning best live performance of the year without actually even playing a gig in this year of great music – none of which was on the show.

Maybe everyone imagined what an Adele gig was like? maybe middle England blinked and Adele played a show?   do these people ever actually go to any gigs? Only one thing can be certain, Adele didn’t and still won an award!
