Q.  Hello Oracle !
I'd like to know if you are nominated for a Brit award ( as a band ) do you have to go to the event? Or can you just stay home? Because I was wondering if Oasis will attend would it be with or without Noel?

Thanks in advance mate ! :)

Cynical folk used to think that if you didn't turn up for the show you would have zero chance of winning but that has proved to be false. Anyway, no, you don't HAVE to attend and in light of the Oasis split the brothers certainly wouldn't sit at the same table and I very much doubt they'd agree to accept an award together at the podium!

This is Oracle vs. Anchorman. I think they were, he says not. I think I am right. I am usually aren't I?

Q.  Why oh why didnt the band win a Brit award! Was gutted!

Well that's the way it goes sometimes. Iron Maiden have been around for over 25 years and have a hardcore fan base that were voting for the Best Live Act category. Let's be honest, they don't get a lot of opportunity to win at the Brits so it was always gonna be tough. Plus we weren't just competing with the band, but also Eddie!
Coldplay have always done so well at the Brits but this year it was someone else's turn. To see a band such as Elbow finally get some recognition was great! Duffy had an amazing year too. The Girls Aloud's single was stiff competition.
As you may guess by the fact they have all been invited to perform with Coldplay on tour, they have the band's support and congratulations.
It's always fantastic to win but performing, being nominated and taking part are great too.
