Brits: Will Kanye Gatecrash The Stage Again?
With Beyonce up for a nomination at the 2015 Brits for Best International Female, William Hill are offering 6/1 that Kanye West gatecrashes the stage during the presenting of that award.
“One thing punters look for when having a bet is form and Kanye certainly has that in spades when it comes to upstaging people collecting their awards,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “It would not be a massive surprise to see him snatch centre stage once again.”
Ant and Dec are hosting the awards for the first time since 2001 and it is 10/1 that they perform one of their singles live at Wednesday night’s Brits.
One of the hosting duties Ant and Dec will have to perform is making sure that the speeches do not overrun and it is 8/1 that the winners of the last award have their acceptance speech cut short as happened to Adele a couple of years ago.
As betting closed, It was Royal Blood who headed the betting for Best Group ahead of One Direction who look set to miss out on the award for the third year in a row.
“Punters have been sensing blood as they expect the Royal duo to walk home with the coveted Best Group award,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
