James Corden To Return As BRIT Awards Host; Damien Hirst To Design Statuette

James Corden’s stuttering performance under pressure at last year’s BRIT Awards ultimately hasn’t ruined his chances of being asked back, with the event confirming that the actor and comedian will be returning to host the music awards in 2013.

The televised awards descended into controversy this year after Corden was ordered by production to tell best British album winner Adele to cut her acceptance speech short so that they’d have time to show all of Blur’s performance. Unhappy with that, Adele flipped the bird at the cameras and the event came under criticism for essentially telling the night’s biggest winner to get off stage.

Corden will be hoping that there’ll be no repeat of that this time round, with the organizers having hopefully learnt their lesson. In addition to his confirmation to return, organizers have also revealed that Damien Hirst will follow in the footsteps of Sir Peter Blake and Dame Vivienne Westwood in designing the statuette to be handed out to winners in 2013. According to the Telegraph, BRITS chairman David Joseph said: "We are delighted that Damien will become the third extraordinary creative Briton to re-imagine the Brit statue. He is truly one of the most important British artists ever and his unique vision will make winning a 2013 Brit an even more special proposition."
