Robbie Williams Will Be An Outstanding Brit

Robbie Williams' comeback is on a roll! The onetime Take That crooner has been singled out to receive the Outstanding Contribution To Music award at the BRITs—i.e., the same prize the Pet Shop Boys were given earlier this year where they did that really rad medley of their hitz with Brandon Flowers and Lady GaGa—in February.

And, kudos to Rob—it's certainly been a banner year for him. Well, banner week, at least. "Bodies" debuted at #2 on the U.K. singles chart this past Sunday, and his Trevor Horn-produced album Reality Killed The Video Star is out November 9.

Hey! The Pet Shop Boys also worked with Trevor Horn on their 2006 Fundamental album. Hmmm.

Robbie is noted for having won 11 BRIT Awards in the past, more than any other artist. So what's one more to stuff in a box up in the attic?
