Last week’s Golden Globes mean that award season is fully underway and on Saturday (14 January) night, it was time for the 2017 Brit Awards nominations to be announced.

The full list was revealed live on ITV, with a special ‘The Brits Are Coming’ show, featuring performances from nominated artists Craig David, Christine and the Queens, Calum Scott and Rag’n’Bone Man.

Will Skepta be successful again? 

Little Mix and Mercury prize winner Skepta are in the lead running up to the February ceremony, with three nods each, while The 1975, Kano, Michael Kiwanuka, Calvin Harris, James Arthur, Clean Bandit, Jonas Blue, Tinie Tempah and Coldplay all have two.

There are a number of categories that look particularly interesting, including the Mastercard British Album of the Year one, which will see David Bowie, Skepta, The 1975, Kano, and Michael Kiwanuka going head-to-head. 

The International Female Solo Artist category will be a tough fought contest, with breakthrough star Christine And The Queens going up against Rihanna, Sia, and sisters Beyonce and Solange Knowles.
