Adele Brits 2012 speech cut-off to be put right, says chairman

By
Brit Awards chairman David Joseph has revealed that Adele being cut off during her speech at last year's show will be put right at tonight's (February 20) proceedings.

The singer's acceptance speech for 'British Album' was famously cut short last year, when host James Corden was asked to introduce Blur on stage.

However, Joseph has admitted that the decision to end Adele's speech abruptly was a mistake, and one that needs to be rectified.

"How can you take an artist who has made the biggest cultural impact musically this country has seen globally for some time and cut her off in the middle of her speech?" Joseph told The Guardian.

"I very much to this day question what was happening in that control booth."

He added: "I can hint something is going to happen this year to rewrite that wrong. I'd stay tuned to this year's show to see if there is any form of squaring of that circle."

Adele has been nominated for 'British Single' at this year's ceremony for her James Bond theme 'Skyfall'.

The Brit Awards 2013 takes place at London's O2 Arena tonight (February 20) and will air on ITV from 8pm.
