“We’re going to perform there hopefully with a full orchestra and choir to do a full rendition of ‘Supremacy,’ which is the first song on the album,” singer Matt Bellamy said during an exclusive interview with Radio.com in regards to the latest single from the band’s most recent full-length, The 2nd Law. “It’ll be nice to perform that with an orchestra.
“The GRAMMYS are a bit more high-brow,” Bellamy continued, comparing the prestigious British music awards ceremony to its American counterpart. “It feels more serious, a bit more like the Oscars or something. The BRITS is a bit more pop. Not as formal, I’d say.”
“The BRITS are more like the Golden Globes when compared to the Oscars,” added the band’s drummer, Dominic Howard. “Everyone’s sitting around, eating dinner, drinking, chatting. You watch the Golden Globes, and you can’t hear what the presenters are saying because everyone’s just chatting in the background. The BRITS are a little bit like that.”
The 2013 BRIT Awards are scheduled for February 20 at London’s O2 Arena, ten days after the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards on February 10 at 8 p.m., where Muse is up for Best Rock Album (The 2nd Law) and Best Rock Song (“Madness”).
