The 2008 Brit awards were styled to represent the best of British from pop to punk. On the left stage a torn up Union Jack surrounded the stage, in stark contrast with golden swags and crystal of the stage right stage. The central area was styled to match the aesthetic of the hosts Sharon and Ozzy Osborne. With a Damian Hirst like crystal skull, luxurious leather walls and two thrones for the couple the area was finished off with a large sculpture of a bat. Individual set pieces for the performances were created for Mark Ronson, Rihanna, Kaiser Chiefs, Leona Lewis, Mika and Amy Winehouse.
