So who’s going home with a Mercury?

We’ll find out on BBC2 in the UK from 10pm¬†tonight with the highly annoying Lauren Laverne (or ‘1995’ as I like to call her).¬†If you do a Google Image search for the awards, PJ Harvey seems to be the most googled artist today, but it’s anyone’s game.

UPDATE: PJ Harvey won.
