Liam Gallagher's Bad Mouthed BRIT Awards Speech

 
Liam Gallagher's Bad Mouthed BRIT Awards Speech

17 February 2010

Liam Gallagher outraged the BRIT Awards tonight (16.02.10), throwing his trophy in the crowd and snubbing his brother.

The former Oasis singer appeared to collect the award for BRITS Album of 30 Years, a publicly voted accolade for the best album since the event started.

Liam appeared onstage briefly to collect the trophy, and thanked the band's line up - apart from his brother Noel, the band's main songwriter and second vocalist.

Referring to one of the group's hits, Liam said: "I'd like to thank Bonehead, Guigsy, Alan White.... the best bands in the f**king world live forever."

He then threw his microphone and the award into the audience and walked offstage.

Oasis split last year after a fallout between the volatile Gallagher brothers, and while Noel is recording a new solo album, Liam has formed a new band with the rest of the group's members.

Backstage at the event, he said: "I don't know if we deserved it because there has been loads of great albums over the last 30 years.

"But if they're gonna give it to us then I'll play the game and turn up and get it.
"Now can we go and take loads of Class A drugs?"

The missing microphone caused panic among the award organisers, and while the show was at an advert break, one of the stage team pleaded for its safe return.

He announced: "We need this mic back. Please, if you have the mic will you return it, as one of our artists will not be able to perform without it."

The microphone thrown by Liam was given back and the show went on.

Other performances at the event included rock band Kasabian, who performed their single 'Fire' on a stage which was partially engulfed in flames. They later won the award for British Group.

Cheryl Cole - who is currently undergoing troubles in her marriage to footballer Ashley Cole, after he was caught sending lewd messages to other women - also performed her single 'Fight For This Love' singing through what appeared to be gritted teeth as she did a dance routine reminiscent of Michael Jackson.
