Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson says that he is “annoyed” not to have made the shortlist for the Best Single at Wednesday’s Brit Awards.

Their track, ‘Ruby’, made the final ten names in the category but has not made the final five after the list was whittled down by the British public. Instead The Hoosiers, Leona Lewis, Take That, Mika and Mark Ronson will fight it out at the Earl’s Court bash.

Wilson commented: "Apparently we were in the nominees and then (someone handed me a piece of paper) with five nominees and we were not in there. Everyone knows Ruby is the best single, if you are gonna whittle them down to five, you'd think Ruby would be in there wouldn't you?"

He blathered on: "(The final five have) all got their merits, but I am just a bit annoyed. There is no point making enemies with these people cos they will all be there."
