Robbie Williams wants BRITs bosses to liven up dull awards show

Robbie Williams is urging organisers of the BRIT Awards to make some serious changes to avoid another "dull" ceremony next year (14). The Take That star was among the performers at the prizegiving in London last week (20Feb13), but he insists playing his hit Candy to fellow celebrities and industry executives was like facing a "dead hall". Williams is adamant the show was "a bit dull" and could be improved by filling the venue with an audience of fans when it returns in 2014. He tells Britain's BBC Radio 4's Front Row show, "I'm not saying that I was amazing at the BRITs... (but) I got on stage and turned around and looked at a dead hall. It's not their fault, but maybe they should have some punters in... I didn't have anybody to vibe off in the audience." Williams was so disappointed with the ceremony, he wrote a song afterwards mocking the BRITs. In the track, titled The Brits 2013, he sings, "I'm very excited to be here yet again, it's an honour to be nominated of course, blah di blah... Well that BRITs night was so f**king boring."
