Boy George: It would be really good if Bowie wins

Boy George told ITV News it would be "really good" if David Bowie wins a Brit Award tonight "because all pop music at the moment is centred around a certain demographic".

"Basically in this country if you're over a certain age you won't get played on Radio One which is shocking - this sort of idea that if you're past 30 you're not relevant, it's a cliche!"

The singer said he "hopes" Bowie wins his first Brit in nearly 20 years.

"I think it would be the right thing", he said. "I think everybody would be so happy if he wins - I think there will be a big, big, huge roar of approval if he wins".
