The 2009 Classical BRIT Awards were held earlier tonight at London's Royal Albert Hall in an appalling display of bad hair; for the first time in her long life, Camilla wins for the best coiffure (at least unlike Jonas Kaufmann's, her hair looked freshly shampooed).
The tenth annual ceremony handed out awards to a handful of randomness, in addition to Gustavo Dudamel for "Male Artist of the Year", Sir Charles Mackerras for the "Critics' Award", and José Carreras scored himself a "Lifetime Achievement In Music". The full list can be found here.
The event brought out Placidone, José Carreras, Jonas Kaufmann, Lang Lang, Sir Charles Mackerras, Katherine Jenkins, Faryl Smith, and Darcy Bu$$sel. Weeee!
In the photo above, pOpera Tart, Katherine Jenkins chats up the Duchess of Cornwall, while below is a shot of Jenkins' arrival.
