BRITs 25 - the Best Song Award will be broadcast on Radio 2 for two hours on Monday 3rd January, when listeners will be invited to vote for their favourite single from a list of 25. The list has been compiled by a panel of industry experts and media bods, and the top five winning songs from the radio broadcast will be presented at the BRIT Awards Nomination Launch at London's Park Lane Hotel a week later. Talk about cranking up the publicity! That's two hours of national radio airtime, then a pre-awards 'Nomination Launch Party' before the main event on February 9th 2005. Well done chaps. Ten weeks ahead of the actual event, to the organisers of the BRITS 25 with MasterCard, ... we salute you!
