BRIT Awards 2017: Nominations announced

The nominations for the 37th Brit Awards were announced earlier today with a diverse list of artists, a true reflection of the past year in music.

Our highlights of the nominations include posthumous nominations for David Bowie (British Male Solo Artist and British Album of the Year) and Leonard Cohen (Best International Male). Grime has been celebrated throughout the nominations with Skepta (British Male Solo Artist, British Breakthrough Act and British Album of the Year), Kano (British Male Solo Artist and British Album of the Year) and Stormzy (British Breakthrough Act) all nominated.

All 5 nominees for British Album of the Year were shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize but Radiohead’s comeback album A Moon Shaped Pool missed out surprisingly. The full list of nominations can be found below and our tips for the awards will come closer to the even on 22nd February.
