Brits global success (for international sales in 2012)

I’m sure they’re all crossing their fingers in hopes of receiving the polka-dotted trophy designed by Damien Hirst.

No doubt the attendees will be getting the treatment. There’s a backstage spa for that! With the likes of Fudge behind the hair and Revlon doing make-up and nails the stars will be polished and pretty.

Us viewers don’t have to fuss over our awards-day look though because ITV1 airs the BRITs live. Slip into your rainbow dotted onesie (we won’t judge we promise) and order pizza for a night of home entertainment.
