U2 may not get Brit Award

Posted on Thursday, December 14 @ 02:58:02 UTC by Macphisto

(PeopleNews.com) -- Industry figures rally against ‘TV stunt’
The most coveted prize in that the British music industry can bestow may be snatched from U2 at the last minute because, as a Dublin band, some industry figures insist that Bono, The Edge and co aren’t actually a part of the British music industry at all.

Following a leak early last week that the band were set to scoop the Outstanding Contribution to British Music prize at the ceremony in February, it seems that top Brit Awards execs – who include Geri Halliwell’s fearsome former manager Lisa Anderson – have come under heavy pressure to veto the honour. One particular industry insider is hopeful that the executives will soon see things his way. ‘The decision makes no sense,’ this senior recordman fumes. ‘U2 don’t even pay tax in this country. The Brits should promote the UK’s best talent, especially at the moment with dwindling overseas sales. The organisers seem far more interested in putting on a spectacular TV show than rewarding talent, just like they were when the Spice Girls won last year.’ It is not clear exactly which current UK ‘talent’ this outraged lobby would prefer. Thankfully, just like U2, current pop darlings Westlife are also from the Republic of Ireland.
