I was happy that the Foo Fighters ended up winning four awards because their last album 'Wasting Light' was such a brilliant record. It was also nice that Amy Winehouse won the award for Best Pop Duo Performance which was a fitting tribute to a shortlived talent. But the big winner was Adele (she won six awards!) and I think she throughly deserved it.
I predicted 5/10 correctly. Not too shabby.
