Hard-Fi Star Questions Brit Nominations

HARD-FI frontman RICHARD ARCHER has hit out at the organisers of next month's (FEB06) Brit Awards for leaving SUGABABES and GIRLS ALOUD out of the Best Pop Act category.

The LIVING FOR THE WEEKEND singer finds it difficult to understand how a singer/songwriter like JAMES BLUNT can be nominated, when the two all-female groups weren't.

He says, "I'm not really a pop fan but when it's done right it's good.

"Girls Aloud and Sugababes both do it well so it's a bit of a surprise they aren't in the pop act selection when Blunt and (KATIE) MELUA are. They should be.

"How they put the nominations together is a bit of a mystery. We're up for Best Group but not Breakthrough Act, when last year (05) was the one in which we actually broke through."
