The team here at Great British Bingo surveyed 1000 people to find out who were their favourites to take home the most BRIT awards. But were the public correct in their voting? Let’s find out…
Leading the pack was Ed Sheeran with a whopping 38% of votes. The Thinking Out Loud singer was as successful as people thought: he came away with Best Male Artist and Mastercard Album Of The Year. His celebrations got quite a bit of attention too. At one point he was rapping for Rita Ora and had to be carried out by bouncers at the end of the night.
Only 18% of the people surveyed thought Sam Smith , surprising considering that he’s already won 4 Grammys this year. Like Ed, he landed two awards including Best Breakthrough Act and Best Global Success. We think he should have definitely got more votes.
There are just so many 1D fans out there that it was inevitable that One Direction would get some votes, even though they’re not what we’d call “good” music. 14.9% of people thought they would come out with the most awards but they were sadly mistaken. The band did pick up one award but only for Best Music Video…which we’re sure they didn’t have that much influence over.
Mark Ronson only received a measly 8.2% despite the fact that everybody must have heard Uptown Funk by now. We weren’t at all shocked when it won the Best Single trophy. We wonder if at the end of the night Mark called a limo by saying “Julio get the stretch!”.
George Ezra has a much smaller profile than the other musicians on this list but he still managed to attract 7.1% of the awards. Sadly, the voters were wrong – he didn’t pick up any awards. Perhaps it’s that slightly irritating Casio song that put the judges off.
And here’s where the voters went really astray with their predictions. Royal Blood got the lowest amount of votes at 5.6% but they took away what is arguably the best award of all: best British Group.
Well that’s it for this year’s awards predictions. We’re hoping Madge is recovering from her fall and Ed’s sleeping off his hangover!
