We'll have full coverage of the bash this evening (February 20)

The Brit Awards begin at 8pm (GMT) tonight at London‘s Earls Court venue, and we’ll be giving you full coverage of events on NME.COM.

We’ll be reporting who wins, who loses and who gets up to mischief all evening, as it happens, as the nominees clench up and cross their fingers in anticipation.

It’s already been reported that Brit bosses are worried about what antics presenters Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne are going to get up to at the awards, and should any interesting incidents occur we’ll be the first to report it.
