We say: Apologies to 1D, but the Arctic Monkeys both sound better and wear much better suits. The Sheffielders have gone from boys to men in the last year, adding a sexy flair to their songwriting skills too.
We say: The stage is set for the comeback queen – the question is will David Bowie break cover and collect the prize? Either way, Bowie richly deserves the award for the phenomenal rock of ‘The Next Day’.
We say: We’d love to see Ms Monáe win, if only to see how kookballs her speech would be. It has to be Lorde though. Not only is she a stunning singer, she’s a canny critic of pop itself, as ‘Royals’ proved.
