London singer/songwriter wins the gong in her hometown
Kate Nash won the Best British Female award at the Brit Awards 2008 tonight (February 20) in London.
“This is really surreal,” she said as she accepted the award from actor James Nesbitt, before thanking her family for their support, as well as her management and other people who had helped her career.
Nash gave a shout out to the Brits School, which she graduated from, along with the likes of Amy Winehouse and members of The Kooks, before praising her fellow nominees for their individuality which proves that “female is not a genre”.
Kate Nash is now set to hit the road on the US NME Awards Tour which kicks off in April.
