BRIT Awards Chairman To "Rewrite The Wrong" Of Cutting Off Adele's Speech In 2012
20 February 2013, 12:26
The 'Rolling In The Deep' singer was famously cut off during the 2012, but the BRITs plan to make amends tonight.
The chairman of the BRIT Awards has admitted that cutting off Adele during her acceptance speech at last year's ceremony was a bad decision - and promises that tonight's (20th February) BRITs will "rewrite that wrong".
BRITs chairman David Joseph says he still questions the decision to have host James Corden cut the 'Someone Like You' singer's acceptance speech for Best British Album short to stay within the show's time constraints.
The decision was met with heavy boos from the show's live audience as well as leading Adele herself to give a middle finger to the cameras, later revealing he gesture had been aimed at "the suits at the BRITs".
"How can you take an artist who has made the biggest cultural impact musically this country has seen globally for some time and cut her off in the middle of her speech?" David questioned, during an interview with The Guardian this week. "I very much to this day question what was happening in that control booth.
"I can hint something is going to happen this year to rewrite that wrong," the chairman revealed. "I'd stay tuned to this year's show to see if there is any form of squaring of that circle."

Adele is up for two awards at this year's BRITs, both Global Success and Best British Single With Capital FM for 'Skyfall', but is not expected to attend in person.
