They were doing loads of interviews in the press room backstage.

Rock'n'roll Radio 5 do have an interview though, should be on soon. I thought Dave looked a bit downbeat (for him). Maybe just knackered.

Fun, interesting, unique evening at The O2. Surrounded by Little Mix fans. Foo's sounded fab. Very very glad I went.

Turned TV on in time to see Foos perform then put on Netflix once they finished.

I have zero interest in the rest of the line-up.

Gorrilaz beat Wolf Alice to best British band - seriously? They have done sod all since their first record and the gimmick has worn off.

I really lost interest after the Foos performance. I'm not surprised that they didn't stick around...roll on June

Dave does look tired or something, not his usual chirpy self.

I thought it wasn't all that bad, there are supposed to be bits/lots of the Brits that you hate, or make you cringe (thanks Damon for that). We have a representative of the younger demographic in this house and they love Foos but also really enjoy Dua Lipa. Personally I don't like or understand or have any emotional response to rap or grime but clearly Stormzy is a good performer. And, yeah, Kendrick Lamar came over as a total tit, but that's a Brits tradition.

I think its just good exposure. They will sell more records because of it. The charts next week will be full of brit winners and performers. Not that they need it but secretly i think dave wants to be the biggest rock band in the world (they pretty much are anyway at the moment) and the record company probably asked them. Plus most the band love the uk.

Beyond being a good performer he used his exposure to call out Theresa May & have a dig at The Daily Mail. Coming off the back of Ellie Goulding’s disjointed praise for #MeToo & Damon’s slurred Brexit mention Stormzy’s rap felt to me like (as far as awards shows go) the correct balance of position & power.

I've yet to watch Stormzy's performance, but by all accounts it was pretty special. Fair play to him for calling out T May and her lacklustre response to the Grenfell tragedy. The charred structure is visible from my workplace. The audience weren't engaged with the performers, and that's why I believe Dave looked a bit cheesed off. I've come across a nice clip of Dave and Nile Rogers - probably one of the very few people Dave actually knew at the ceremony!

I only watched the Foos performance then watched something else. Fair play to Stormzy for calling out the Tory scum sweeping Grenfell under the carpet.

As for Dave, why were they so high up on that stupid stage - could anyone in the standing area actually see all/any of the band?

Thank you ☺
Go to the your page where the web address is. Hold your finger on that link and hopefully you will be prompted to copy/select the link. Then go to where you want to put the link on the page, hold your finger on the screen and it will prompt you to paste.

What Dave said about Nile is that he was the 'One person I actually like in the whole place'?!
