Florence and the Brits

The Brit nominations come out later today, and it's a pretty good bet that Florence and the Machine (pictured right, with a duck) will have three nominations, for best female, best album and breakthrough artist.

My colleague and Brits guru, Ian Youngs, reckons La Roux could walk away with more nominations - as they're also eligible for best single - but I'd put money on Florence being the big winner on 16 February.

According to my predictometer, Paolo Nutini is a shoo-in for best male and JLS are likely to win the viewer's teenager's vote for best single. Lady GaGa should easily dominate the international categories where, bizarrely, they've cancelled the best international group prize. The Brits are weird, aren't they?

Anyway, in anticipation of Florence "sweeping the board" (this phrase always makes me think of my sister flipping her lid during a game of Monopoly and scattering all the pieces on the floor with one swift motion of her arm) here is her rather splendiferous cover of Robert Palmer's Addicted To Love, off the CD single for You Got The Love.
