Scottish singer Emeli Sande has admitted that she would love to win at this year's Brit Awards, to make up for the fiasco of last year's ceremony. Emeli won a Brit Award last year but was unable to go up on stage to collect the award, as the show had over run, due to time restraints.
Chatting to The Sun about the Brit Awards, Sande explained, "It wasn't the best of experiences last year. It was exciting to win an award, but I didn't get to go up and do a speech. If I did win one this time, I'd like to do it properly."
She added, "Although I haven't planned what I'm going to say because I don't want to jinx it. I didn't even have an album out last year or the chance to prove myself, so getting to go back this year and getting that acknowledgement means a lot."
Emeli is nominated for four Brit Awards this year, including Best British Female Solo Artist and Best British Album for Our Version of Events. However, she faces stiff competition in the Best British Album category from the likes of Plan B for Ill Manors, Alt-J for An Awesome Wave, Paloma Faith for Fall to Grace and Mumford & Sons for Babel.
The Brit Awards will take place tomorrow (Wednesday, February 20).
