'Your papers, please' must never be heard in America

British music put on a brash, confident show at the Brit Awards on Wednesday, celebrating a resurgent industry whose bands and artists are topping charts around the globe.
A year after Whitney Houston's death, music executive Clive Davis remembered her in words _ and video.
The late Amy Winehouse has been nominated for a Brit Award, joining acts such as Emeli Sande and Paloma Faith in the running for best British female act.
U.K. singer Emeli Sande has married boyfriend Adam Gouragine.
London Olympic organizers say former Beatle Paul McCartney and other star performers who took part in Friday's opening ceremony essentially donated their time — receiving a mere $1.57 for their performances.
"This is a dream, really," said Sande, who beat Alt-J, Mumford & Sons, Plan B and Paloma Faith to the album prize.
She collaborated with Alicia Keys on the album and has written for Keys' upcoming release.
