Brits Odds

Paddy Power are offering prices on some of the Brit awards nominations. So because I've nothing better to do, I shall share the latest prices with you here...bear in mind they're only offering prices on the BRITISH categories and I'm not even going to list the LIVE act category as it's just pointless.

James Morrison 4 - 9
Lemar 7 - 2
Paolo Nutini 11 - 2
Thom Yorke 10 - 1
Jarvis Cocker 16 - 1

If the Brits decide that they need a bit of credibility then Yorke & Cocker may make a mockery of those odds, but I can't see them doing so. James Morrison is SO short a price that you can't really look past him, but whilst I can't see Lemar winning, Paolo Nutini could well sneak it.

Corinne Bailey Rae 8 - 11
Lily Allen 2 - 1
Amy Winehouse 7 - 2
Jamelia 14 - 1
Nerina Pallot 25 - 1

Again this one looks like the favourites to lose really. Throw in Rae's recent American success and she should probably walk away with this one. Jamelia is there for no apparent reason and whilst Nerina Pallot most certainly deserves the nomination I think the only thing she'll get from the evening is the chance to buy a new frock. I'd prefer Lily Allen to win, but for reasons I shall explain shortly, I think it's safe to say CBR will pip her here.

Lily Allen 13 - 8
James Morrison 11 - 4
Corinne Bailey Rae 11 - 4
The Kooks 4 - 1
The Fratellis 10 - 1

And this is why CBR will probably get the nod in the Best Female category as I would expect Lily Allen to claim this one. Considering the Kooks had the biggest selling debut album of 2006 in the UK though, they may well sneak this one, even more so as this is voted for by Radio 1 listeners.

Muse 5 - 4
Snow Patrol 2 - 1
Arctic Monkeys 9 - 2
Razorlight 6 - 1
Kasabian 10 - 1

Perhaps the most keenly contested and open category. I can't see it going to Kasabian or Razorlight as its the other three who've really set the world alight in the past year in terms of success. I'd prefer Muse to win it, but fear it may end up being Snow Patrol.

Take That - 'Patience' 8 - 11
Snow Patrol - 'Chasing Cars' 9 - 2
Leona Lewis - 'A Moment Like This' 6 - 1
Razorlight - 'America' 8 - 1
James Morrison - 'You Give Me Something' 9 - 1
Lily Allen - 'Smile' 10 - 1
The Kooks - 'She Moves In Her Own Way' 20 - 1
Will Young - 'All Time Love' 20 - 1
The Feeling - 'Fill My Little World' 20 - 1
Corinne Bailey Rae - 'Put Your Records On' 33 - 1
Sandi Thom - 'I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker' 40 - 1

Surely this is only going to go the way of Take That, not least because this is a public vote. I'd take anything as long as it wasn't Snow Patrol. Yes, I'd ever prefer the absolutely dreadful Razorlight song to win than them!

Snow Patrol - 'Eyes Open' evens
Muse - 'Black Holes And Revelations' 9 - 4
Arctic Monkeys -'Whatever People Say I Am,That's What I'm Not' 11 - 4
Amy Winehouse - 'Back To Black' 9 - 1
Lily Allen - 'Alright, Still' 16 - 1

A two horse race really as women never seem to take the "big one" and Arctic Monkeys shouldn't even really be in this if we were being strict about release dates. Therefore you're either looking at Snow Patrol or Muse and I wouldn't be at all surprised if they split this and the Best British Group award between each other.
