Ah!  I couldn't understand this either.
Why was the award called "BRITs Hits 30", when so many of the songs are clearly from the 70s?

It turns out that this award is really for the best song performance at the Brits, in the last 30 years.

I found the answer at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2010_BRIT_Awards
