Emeli Sande - Emeli Sande 'Annoyed' By Brits Snub

Scottish singer/songwriter Emeli Sande was fuming when she was prevented from picking up her Critics Choice honour onstage at the Brit Awards on Tuesday (21Feb12), branding the snub "annoying".
The 24 year old, who has recorded with rapper Professor Green and written tracks for stars including Susan Boyle and Cheryl Cole, was chosen for the honour by a panel of experts and was expected to pick up the trophy during the London ceremony.
But due to time constraints at the event, Sande was not asked onstage to accept her award - and the star was hurt by the snub.
A fan asked Sande on Twitter.com, "Did u get ur (your) award... the camera only went on yea (sic) for (a) sec (second)."
Sande replied, "Yeh... kinda Annoying. But it's on top of my piano now!"
A source tells Britain's The Sun, "She'd been looking forward to it for months and was really disappointed when her win was not properly recognised. She's worked incredibly hard over the last year and what she has achieved has been phenomenal."
