Female Artists lead Brit Award 2019 nominations


Possibly the most relevant music award for the UK music industry; the Brits celebrate the best music talent this country has to offer. For the first time in a long time, female artists are dominating the nominations; with Dua Lipa and Anne-Marie leading nominations for four awards nominations each. Newcomer Jorja Smith in nominated for 3 awards, including British album of the Year for Lost & Found, and Best Newcomer.

Also with 3 nominations and tipped to win big is George Ezra, going against Jorja Smith in the British album of the year for Staying at Tamara’s, as well as Best Single for ‘Shotgun’. The Brits aren’t just about homegrown talent, there are also nominations for international artists, including Janelle Monae, Shawn Mendes and BROCKHAMPTON.

We already have one award winner, announced in advance – the Critics Choice award. Previous winners include Adele, Sam Smith and Ellie Goulding. This year, the critics chose Sam Fender over nominees Lewis Capaldi and Mahalia, as the one to watch in 2019.
