BRIT Awards 2017
See the nominees
Following criticism in 2016, the BRITs have broadened their voter base for 2017, resulting in their most diverse shortlist to date. Skepta and Little Mix lead the pack with three nods each, while David Bowie receives two posthumous nominations for his final album, Blackstar. This year’s ceremony takes place on February 22nd at London’s O2 Arena and promises live performances from The 1975, Emeli Sandé and more. Check out all the nominees below.
All five of 2017’s British Album nominees were also nominated for the 2016 Mercury Prize. The question is, can Skepta top off an incredible 12 months by doing the double?
Craig David receives his first BRIT-nomination since 2006 as part of an eclectic shortlist encompassing grime, R&B, folk-rock and jazz.
