All the cool kids get public transport these days it seems.

And after Rihanna set the trend by getting the tube to the BRIT Awards last year, two other acts followed suit tonight.

Muse, who were nominated for Best Band and Best Live Act tonight and who opened the Brits 2013 this evening, made sure that they kept their mode of transport down to earth this evening, taking the underground to the ceremony.

They tweeted: "Heading to Brits by tube, beat the traffic!" alongside a snap of lead singer Matt Bellamy outside the station.

Fellow nominee Olly Murs ALSO kept it real by popping on the tube, to avoid the crazy London traffic.

He tweeted: "That was bonkers!! Did a Rihanna tonight and got the tube to the @BRITAwards the traffic was NUTS!! #nowneedatoilet"

We hope someone found him a toilet.

Meanwhile super cool American popstar Justin Timberlake ALSO got a different form of transport to London's O2.

But he beat both Muse and Olly in the cool stakes, arriving by BOAT.

The singer tweeted: "Boat ride to the O2!! London Fog... #Brits2013"

And it's a good job this lot chose a different route to the awards after Lily Allen AND Caroline Flack both got held up.

Singer and mummy Lily had a mare trying to hit the red carpet after she had to turn back when she forgot her nipple pads.

And THEN she headed to Earls Court by mistake, before getting stuck in a ridiculous amount of traffic.

She posted: "I can see the 02 but stuck in traffic"

Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack also got held up on the road - after deciding to hit the arena despite suffering from food poisoining.
