Brit Awards Betting 2013

This year The Brit Awards 2013 takes place on the 20th February at the O2 Arena. Taylot Swift, Emeli Sande, Mumford and Sons and Rihanna are some of the nominees in the running for an award.

The Brit Awards, or the 'Brits', are Britain's main pop music event, and one of the biggest awards cermonies in the events betting calendar next to the Oscars, the BAFTA's, and BBC Sports Personality of the Year. Towards the start of each year, the BPI celebrate British pop music and reward Britain's top artists and groups in categories like best single, best album, and best male and female solo artist. The BPI also organise the Classical Brit Awards for slightly more 'sedate' music fans.

Critics tend to see the Brit Awards as an event in which the music industry gives itself a pat on the back and rewards stars for shifting units. Some of this is criticism is perhaps justified, as the event is, after all, largely an industry 'do' organised by the BPI (even if television coverage and the arena of screaming fans make it look significantly more 'populist' or 'democratic' than it actually is). Nevertheless, even if the Brit Awards lack the critical kudos of other UK music awards betting environments like the Mercury Prize Betting, they are still seen as the premiere awards in UK Music and a lot of importance is attached to them.

Brit Awards Betting Categories

There are many weird and wonderful awards handed out at the Brits and the bookmakers offer Brit Awards Betting on each and every one of them. The most coveted ones being Best British Male Solo Artist, Best British Female Solo Artist and Best British Band which also tend to receive the largest volume of bets with the online bookmakers. There are also awards given to International artists in equivalent categories which are accepted with similar gratitude from their recipients.

Bets British Single and Best British Album are also extremely popular Brit Awards Betting categories. Traditionally these categories tend two have two front runners in the Music Betting stakes but there has been the odd upset throughout the history of the awards so don’t be afraid to put your wedge on that rank outsider who provided the soundtrack to your summer. The final categories to mention are the British and International breakthrough acts which list the musicians who have made a big impact on the music scene over the last 12 months, although some can disappear out of the musical stratosphere quite rapidly others go on to dominate the bigger awards categories in years to come.

30 Years of Brit Awards

The Brit Awards entered its 30th year in 2010 and has left a trail of musicians with silver statuettes residing on their mantelpieces over those three decades. The most decorated artist and a favourite with Brit Awards Betting fans is Robbie Williams, he has no fewer than 15 awards to his name (three of which he won with Take That) and was honoured with the Outstanding Contribution to Music Award in recognition of that at the 2010 ceremony.

Musical hall-of-famers such as The Beatles, Prince, Culture Club, The Cure, Take That, Oasis, Blur, Spice Girls, U2, Kylie Minogue and Coldplay have all won multiple awards throughout the history of the awards ceremony. And the majority of them (Liam Gallagher being an obvious exception) state the winning of a Brit Award as one of their greatest achievements in music. It is not necessarily the opportunity to place one of those glistening statuettes on top of their TV (although I am sure one would look very nice in your front living room) but the realisation of recognition that comes with winning the award. A Brit Award is by far and large one of, if not the, biggest award a British musician can hope to win.
