BRIT Awards bosses make promise to Adele

BRIT Awards bosses have promised ADELE will be given a chance to shine at Wednesday night's (20Feb13) ceremony after she was booted from the stage in the middle of her acceptance speech last year (12).

The soul sensation famously flipped her middle finger at host James Corden during the 2012 show when she took to the stage to pick up her Best British Album trophy for 21 and was cut off early due to the over-running schedule.

Adele is nominated in the British Single category for her Bond theme Skyfall and awards bosses have revealed they plan to make amends for last year's (12) mistake.

BRIT Awards chairman David Joseph says, "How can you take an artist who has made the biggest cultural impact musically this country has seen globally for some time and cut her off in the middle of her speech? I very much to this day question what was happening in that control booth. I can hint something is going to happen this year to rewrite that wrong.

"Adele was totally justified expressing how she felt. It was a very big moment for her, but I'd stay tuned to this year's show to see if there is any form of squaring of that circle."

The BRIT Awards will be handed out at London's O2 Arena on Wednesday night.
