Brits: Awards 2011 - Ricky's updates from the red carpet
Newsround's Ricky at the Brits...
The biggest bash in the British music calendar, the Brit Awards, is here - and Newsround's bringing you all the action.
Ricky's been on the red carpet at London's O2 Arena to get all the Brits gossip just for you!
He caught up with some of the biggest stars and sent regular updates to the Newsround web team.
Don't miss Newsround on Wednesday to get all the Brits news.
Tinie Tempah still loves Newsround but says he didn't arrive on a bus even though he wanted to!
He's really looking forward to the show and says he'd love to a duet with Rihanna.
I'd love to have taken Chipmunk up on his offer of heading to the aftershow party, but instead I'm off to the winner's enclosure to get some post-Brits reaction from the winners.
You can find out who's won what on tomorrow's Newsround bulletins!

Alesha Dixon's just had a foot operation so was hopping about on the red carpet in her high heels!
Chipmunk said he was going to try to smuggle me into the aftershow party - I'll let you know how I get on.
Just waiting for Tinie now.

Olly Murs says he's having a brill time. It only took him 20 minutes to get ready - probably because his mum ironed his shirt for him!
Eliza Doolittle says she's friends with Tinie Tempah and really hopes he wins.
She's a little bit upset not to be nominated, but is hoping for better luck next year.

Just walking past the artists' entrance. Spotted no one yet.
And we are off!! The Newsround Brits 'A-Team' (that's my cameraman, producer and me) are on our way to the O2 Arena.
Tinie Tempah must be feeling pretty nervous. I've heard he might be arriving on a double decker London bus!

Some of the other celebs will be arriving on a boat via the River Thames.
I'll be getting there in a car. Not so fancy.
The countdown to the Brits 2011 has begun. Tonight will see Rihanna, Take That and Tinie Tempah performing on stage and of course Newsround will be there.
I'll be live on the red carpet this evening, but right now I'm getting the inside scoop. Yesterday all five members of Take That were busy rehearsing their routine.
Apparently the lads will be joined on stage with 300 dancers! Tinie Tempah and Plan B will also be raising the roof at the O2 Arena in London.
But who will bag a Brit? Tinie's got four nominations, Cheryl Cole and Take That both have two. I'll bring you all the backstage gossip and let you know who wins what. I'll be leaving the office in a minute Brits, here I come.
