    Brits Preview 1: Noel Gallagher tight-lipped on duet with Chris Martin at Tuesday's Brits - but doesn't rule it out

    noelgallagher.jpgNoel Gallagher remains tight-lipped on his duet with Chris Martin at Tuesday's Brit Awards, according to The Sun this morning. Here is their article:


    Think Florence and the Machine doing You Got The Dirtee Love with Dizzee Rascal in 2010 and Justin Timberlake with Kylie in 2003. But Noel Gallagher and Chris Martin on stage together for the first time this Tuesday will be pure class. Coldplay frontman Chris suggested the idea to former Oasis guitarist Noel before Christmas and they agreed it would be an ideal way to cap a brilliant year of gigs for both of them. I asked Noel if the duet was on and he replied with a nod and a wink: "I couldn't possibly comment."


    If it wasn't true, the answer would have been: "Piss off, you Scottish fantasist."

    A source added: "Chris and Noel have become good pals over the years. Noel has a lot of respect for Coldplay. He was blown away by their Glastonbury gig when he saw it on telly. They are both up for doing something special."


    Noel, up for Best Male, has a number of tracks he could perform, although no rehearsals have been done yet. AKA... What A Life! with Chris hammering away on piano would be quality. I saw Coldplay live in LA last week and they were on brilliant form. They played Beatles song We Can Work It Out at a MusiCares gig in honour of Sir Paul McCartney and it was stunning. At The Grammys they performed Princess Of China from Mylo Xyloto with Rihanna, which was different class too. The flashing wristbands also burst into life during Paradise. Hopefully they will do the same at The Brits. Last night a Brits spokesman said: "There is lots of speculation about the performances next week but we can't confirm anything. You'll have to tune in on Tuesday."


    There will also be a ten-minute Blur spectacular to close the show — the longest any Outstanding Contribution act has ever been given on the night. It'll be a night to remember.


    Meanwhile, MusicMetric have been crunching data relating to the awards next Tuesday (February 21st) - as Adele, Coldplay, Ed Sheeran have top 'most pirated' list ahead of Brit Awards. According to them this means that Adele is set to dominate on Tuesday night.


    By calculating the artists and releases most commonly downloaded by filesharers in the UK, an accurate prediction of who will win at next week's ceremony can be gained. Musicmetric have tipped Adele to win three awards and have her taking home the gongs for Best Album, Best British Female and Best Single for 'Someone Like You'. They also back Ed Sheeran to win Best British Male, Jessie J to win British Breakthrough Act and Coldplay and Foo Fighters to triumph in the Best British Group and International Group categories respectively.


    They also name Rihanna as the likely recipient of Best International Female and Bruno Mars as Best International Male, with Nicki Minaj as the winner of the award for International Breakthrough Act. The Brit Awards will take place at the O2 Arena on February 21. Blur will receive the Outstanding Contribution To Music award at the 2012 event.
