Here’s Keith Lemon rapping for Tom Grennan at the BRIT Awards
Lemon: “Would you say that Coldplay are the musical version of Ant & Dec?”
NME were interviewing Tom Grennan at the BRIT Awards last night, when Celebrity Juice host Keith Lemon interrupted to deliver a rap and suggest a collab. Watch our full video interview with the pair above.
The singer-songwriter was in attendance at the London ceremony last night where he was nominated for Song Of The Year for ‘Little Bit Of Love’, as well as Best Rock/Alternative Act.
While discussing the success of the single, we were met with Leigh Francis, aka Keith Lemon, who told us a little bit about their friendship.
“Well he’s been on Celebrity Juice and at first we didn’t know each other. We got to know each other because of booze I guess?” he said. “He were up for it, he’s a great sport and a great talent. I didn’t even know his music. I bought his album, he gave me one as well on vinyl but I don’t have record player. Of course I do, I’m old.”
Discussing Grennan’s chances of winning against the likes of Coldplay and victors Wolf Alice for the Rock/Alternative category, Francis asked his: “Would you say that Coldplay are the musical version of Ant & Dec? If you’re against Ant & Dec, you’re not winning. You just sit at the back and have a good time. Coldplay though, eh? It’s a good category to be in.”
Then it all collapsed into Lemon delivering a spitfire rap and offering himself up for a collaboration. Check out our full interview above where Grennan tells us about his musical inspirations and plans for the year.
