One Direction BRIT Awards 2016

In the music world this current week, one of the biggest events took place on Wednesday night at the world famous O2 arena. Of course, it was the Brit awards a show in which musical talent is recognised and also gives artist the opportunity to perform and show off their passion for music. Seeing that half of One Direction turned up to attend this years ceremony, with them members being Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne even though it was only half of the four piece boyband, I will still be talking about all the antics and events that occurred surrounding One Direction as a group no matter how many members attended.

The first glimpse of Louis and Liam and the Brits was when they graced the red carpet to enter the venue. Looking very suave and sophisticated, both dressed and perfected suitable for such a massive event it was defiantly a breath of fresh air to see them on the red carpet at a music event again.

As the awards ceremony kicks off immediately the show delves straight into handing out the first Brit award of the night for the category of British Female Solo Artist. Surprisingly and unknowingly the presenters of this award were the one and only Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne and admittedly they did a pleasantly good job of being presenters for a short period of time.

Later on, one of the two category’s One Direction were nominated for got its prime time and this was for the category British Group and they were up against the likes of Coldplay, Years and Years, Foals and Blur. In previous years One Direction have been nominated for this specific category on a number of occasions and this year were pipped to the post by British rock band Coldplay. However their chances of winning a coveted award wasn’t over just yet.

‘Incredible. Time and time again you keep doing it, there’s absolutely no doubt that we have the best fans.’ – Niall Horan (One Direction, via Twitter)

Throughout the show there is a category titled British Artist Video Of The Year which is a twitter fan based vote where a hashtag becomes available for the public to vote in the run up and throughout the ceremony for who they believe should win the award. Finally near the closing of this years awards ceremony the penultimate time had come around to find out if One Direction had deservingly won the award for their debut music video for album Made In The A.M Drag Me Down. With an intense wait as the envelope opened it was finally said aloud that us the fans have done it again and got the boys the award for the third time in a row. Therefore Louis and Liam made their way up on stage to proudly accept the award of course in the speech thanking every one from the fans to their label they did a very short and sweet speech.

After the formal award ceremony it was time to let loose for all the artist to celebrate at the after party. Louis and Liam went on to do several interviews based around their success of winning their sixth Brit award.

Overall, it was as usual, my favourite music award show and it has being even better for the guys of One Direction picking up yet another award to add to the ever growing collection and even though they didn’t win British Group, there is always a next time.
