Jack Savoretti says BRIT Awards are ‘bizarre’ after failing to land single nod

Chart-topper Jack Savoretti says the BRIT Awards are “bizarre”.

Despite his album Singing To Strangers ­topping the charts last year, Jack failed to land a single nod again.

And he blames it on ­industry politics.

The Candlelight star told me: “We are not nominated, I got the news and I was like, ‘OK, cool, moving on’.

“I’ve never been one to be graced by awards ceremonies so I don’t expect that to change any time soon.

“They are so political, they are made by the ­industry for the industry, they are just bizarre.”

  • Davina McCall's raciest outfits – from frontless dresses to braless displays

Jack, who performed as part of War Child’s BRIT Week recently, reckons the gongs will go to “whoever is pushing for it the most”.

He prefers to let his music do the talking: “The lovely thing about record sales is you can see how many people are connecting with it and that speaks for itself.

“And I think I have done all right, I don’t mean to be greedy, but I am OK”.

Jack is a hopeless romantic and he puts it down to his Italian heritage.

But the crooner ­believes there are too many sad songs in the charts.

And he pointed the finger at BRITs fave Lewis Capaldi.

Jack added: “There are no romantic songs on the radio.

“It’s easy to write a sad love song, as when you’re down it’s a lovely comfort blanket.

“It’s therapy, because why the hell would you stop and write a song when you’re feeling good?”

Jack plays Kew The Music at Royal Botanic Gardens in London on July 9.
