OK so there's not a whole lot to see just yet, but the webcams are now up and running ahead of the ceremony, which kicks off Wednesday at 8.15pm. Doors open from 6.30pm, so expect the venue to be a hive of activity from the afternoon onwards.
So if you've ever wondered what the O2 Academy Brixton looks like when there's nobody there, now's your chance. The webcam images linked to below should update every 10 seconds (or you can click refresh to see the latest scenes). The cameras are trained on three areas - the red carpet, the main awards area, and the backstage photo room (the winners' enclosure, basically).
Of course, you may want to come back on Wednesday, when you'll be able to see famous people and stuff. But still! Exciting...
