David Bowie tipped for first Brits success in 20 years

David Bowie is being tipped to receive his first Brit Award for almost two decades tonight.

Bowie, 67, leads the field to take the British Male Solo Artist award at the Brits after his comeback last year with album The Next Day following a 10-year hiatus.

A triumph for Bowie would make him the oldest recipient of a Brit Award. The current record holder is Sir Tom Jones, who was given an honorary prize for his outstanding contribution to music in 2003, when he was 62.
