2014 Brit Award Nominees
Award season has kicked off again. Last night the nominees were announced for the UK’s biggest music award ceremony, the Brit Awards. The big news was that both Bastille and Disclosure are in the frame for four gongs each. Whilst Ellie Goulding and Rudimental are in the frame for three each.
Of course usual suspects One Direction are nominated. The boys are up for both Best British Group and Best British Single. Unbelievably Jessie J has also been nominated for Best British Solo Female, although we are struggling to work out why.
The Music Eyz Hotlist, which features our views on “the ones to watch in 2o14” also shares some commonality with the Critics Choice nominations, both Sam Smith and Ella Eyre featuring (Sam Smith being the obvious favourite for the Critics Choice Award). The main event takes place on 19th February at London’s O2 arena.
