And the winnner is… James Blunt, I mean… Blake


Yes, very hard to believe, but Lauren Laverne accidentally called James Blake, ‘James Blunt’ at the Mercury Music Prize awards ceremony at London’s Roundhouse last night (Octover 30th). In fairness to her, she dealt with it well, as you can see on her twitter account.

In truth, it’s not about Lauren, but about James (Blake), so congrats to him. It was a strong line up of contestants, which included the wonderful Villagers. Well done to trendy James Blake.
