Comedian James Corden, who was the host of the 2012 Brit Awards earlier this year, has admitted that he believes the whole Adele snub was blown way out of proportion. James claims that Adele is fine with it and nobody is really that bothered about, so why did it get such huge coverage?
Corden explained, "She's fine, I've never known such a non thing to become a thing, ever. I've done a lot of press [in the US] in the last few weeks and no-one's mentioned it. I think they realised that someone didn't get to say 'Thank you' long enough and maybe thought it wasn't huge news."
He added, “The truth is you want something to happen at the Brits. Let's remember what the Brits used to be, where a story would be the lead singer of Chumbawamba throws ice over John Prescott.”
James continued, "Is [the Adele snub] really what we should be saying is a great showcase for our musical centre piece of the year? The show we did this year for the Brits, that was a good two-hour music show."
James Corden is set to return for the fifth season of A League of Their Own, later this month.
