Emeli Sandé also cut from Brit Awards broadcast

It’s not just Adele who was upset: Critics Choice winner Emeli Sandé cut from Brit Awards broadcast

Honoured: Emeli Sande with her Critics' Choice Brit Award at Tuesday's ceremony

It appears Adele wasn’t the only person upset by the Brit Award TV bosses last night.

Chart newcomer Emeli Sandé didn’t even get the opportunity to make a speech after receiving the Critics’ Choice Award.

The Scottish singer, who had a No.1 hit last year with Professor Green duet Read All About It, couldn’t give a public thank you.

Sandé’s family had travelled down from Aberdeen specially for the ceremony at London’s O2 Arena.

But due to tight time constraints, Sande wasn’t given a slot for a speech.

A source close to the singer told The Sun: ‘Emeli deserved her moment in the spotlight in front of her peers, the industry and her family.

‘She’d been looking forward to it for months and was really disappointed when her win was not properly recognised.’

As is tradition, Sande performed to sponsors and journalists at a pre-awards dinner reception at the O2.

Last year’s Critics Choice winner Jessie J was given the chance to make a speech on stage.

Sande’s disappointment comes as double award winner Adele’s speech was cut short to make way for Blur’s performance at the climax of the show.

The Londoner ended up flipping her middle finger to ‘the suits’ behind the show after they ordered host James Corden to cut her short.
