Plan B better that Take That at the BRITs?

Plan B was disappointed when he realised both he and Take That were using dancers dresses as riot police during their BRIT Awards performance, but felt his version was best

Plan B has claimed Take That's BRITs performance was tame compared to his.

The rapper and the boyband each sang at the music awards on Tuesday night (15.02.11) surrounded by dancers dressed as riot police, and while Plan B admitted he was initially annoyed with the similarities, he felt his performance - which featured a policeman dashing across the stage on fire - was best.

The 'She Said' hitmaker - real name Ben Drew - told The Sun newspaper: "I couldn't believe it when I came in and saw their police. I just saw their shields and said, 'What the f**k is this?'

"Theirs was the PG version though - they were just trying to copy me."

After winning British Male Solo Artist at the event, the 27-year-old rapper and singer celebrated at a huge party thrown by his record label and admitted despite claiming he didn't care if he won or not, his win was useful for attracting women.

He said: "This award's like a magnet, it's great. All the women are loving me. I'm definitely not going to complain about that.

"Of course I wanted to win, you just don't want people knowing that when you're sitting by the stage waiting to find out who won. It feels great though."

Known to the world as Plan B, Ben Drew burst into the limelight from the streets of East London. Originally making a name for himself as a hip hop artist, his first album, Who Needs Actions When You Got Words, utilised a direct, confrontational approach to tell hard-hitting stories of contemporary urban issues.

Take That

The prototype boy band have re-lit their own fire and returned to cash in those nostalgia dollars, and have proved far more credible than any of us could have imagined. Now reduced to a three-piece as Jason Orange bows out but Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald soldier on.
