The 2012 Brit Awards will take place tonight. And, t'internet is revolutionising the way you can take part in Britain's annual pop music awards. No longer relegated to just watching the festivities on the telly, Plusnet broadband users can watch the Brits online, or can get in on the action by voting for their favourite artists, tweeting their real-time reactions to the show and downloading live musical performances from the night. Just read on for our recommendations on how you can connect with the 2012 Brit Awards online.
Watch the Brits online
The Brits will be shown live on 21 February at 8pm on itv1 - but, if you want even more, the Red Carpet and Backstage coverage runs from 7pm - 8pm on itv2. Head on over to the itv1 and itv2 home pages and stream all the action live online. We know life can be busy, but with broadband you're guaranteed to not miss out on the fun. If you can't catch the live broadcast, ITV programmes are available to watch online on the ITV Player for 30 days. And, you can stream it though your iPhone, iPad, Android, PS3 or computer.
Interact with the Brits online
The joys of t'internet let you interact with the show and not just watch it. Social media sites like Facebook and Twitter have official Brit Awards accounts - letting you stay up-to-date on all the happenings, as well as share your reactions to the show and the winners in real time. If you're watching the show live, be sure to share the love with @BRIT_Awards on the BRIT Awards Official Fan Page.
Download the nominees and the live performances online
The 2012 Brit Awards nominees is a veritable who's who of some of the best musical artists and groups in the UK and abroad. If you're playlist could use a Brits refresh, iTunes lets you download the nominated albums, singles and artists - trust us, your ears will thank you. It's safe to say that there will be some exceptional performances on the night. You can listen to all the music performed at the Brit Awards online. What's more, live tracks will be available for download on the Brit Awards Downloads page shortly after the event.
And, don't miss out on the online fun … check your broadband before the show
None of the above actions require all that much bandwidth - but if you're doing them all at once for the full Brits experience, it's best to check your data and broadband to avoid stalling or incurring any extra data charges. Check to make sure you don't miss out on any of the Brits fun - with the wrong broadband package, you'll feel almost as bad as all the other artists who will inevitably lose out to Adele this year. Will you be enjoying the full online experience for the 2012 Brit Awards? Who will you be voting for?
