Scissor Sisters @ the Brit Awards

They had this to say:

THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!!
WELL, THE BRITS CAPPED OFF AN AMAZING YEAR IN THE U.K. FOR US. TO WIN 3 AWARDS - BEST INTERNATIONAL BREAKTHROUGH, BEST INTERNATIONAL ARTIST, AND BEST INTERNATIONAL ALBUM – IS THAT INSANE OR WHAT? AND ESPECIALLY WHEN THE COMPETITION INCLUDES SOME OF OUR IDOLS AND A LOT OF PEOPLE WE DEEPLY RESPECT. THERE’S NOT MUCH MORE TO SAY THAN THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO VOTED FOR US, THE SCISSORHOOD AND THE BRITISH PEOPLE. IT WAS JUST A YEAR AGO THAT WE DROPPED OUR LITTLE HOMEMADE RECORD ON YOU ALL, AND THE LOVE YOU HAVE GIVEN US HAS BEEN NOTHING LESS THAN AWE-INSPIRING. YOU COULD NEVER KNOW HOW MUCH IT MEANS TO US (THOUGH HOPEFULLY SOME OF YOU WILL GET TO KNOW THAT FEELING IN THE FUTURE). ALL OUR LOVE AND LOYALTY – ANA, BABYDADDY, DEL, JAKE AND PADDY.
