FLASHING YOUR ARSE: In what looks like a fairly desperate last-minute bid to influence the voting, Jamelia has promised she'll show us her arse if she wins all three Brit awards she's up for tonight. Jamelia, if you win all three, we'll show you our ass...

Talking of the Brits, is it just us or is there something ridiculously old-fashioned about the 'live' coverage having a 24 hour delay on it? It's like the way they wouldn't show football live in the 1970s. If they were going to be able to keep a lid on the results, that would be fine... but it really does remove almost all the point in watching the show tomorrow night if you know who's going to win. Pretty poor.

Something else that puzzles us: it's officially called the BRITs. Why? It makes it look like the first four letters are an acronym - which they're not. Is there anything more to it than designers being rubbish?

Actually, according to no less an authority than the Daily Record's "25 things you never knew about the Brits" article, it is an acronym and stands for "British Record Induistry Trust".

But it's not, is it? It's one of those situations where they try to reverse engineer an acronym out of the name - the British Record Industry Trust dates from 1989, so it came long after they rebranded the British Rop and Pop Awards as the Brits.

That was our thought, but we were naturally loathe to doubt the journalistic integrity of the Razz team despite the fact that they're the only music journalists in the world that make Billy Sloan look like he has a clue.
