Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa lead Brit Awards nominations

Dua Lipa is the only female artist from the United Kingdom to top the charts since Adele, so we know she's definitely going to be huge this year! The 2018 ceremony is staged at The O2 on February 21. It remains to be seen if Sony will dominate the ceremony as they did in 2017.

Dua Lipa will compete for best female artist against the likes of Jessie Ware and 2015 victor Paloma Faith.

The Atlantic Records singer is nominated for British Album, British Male Solo Artist, British Artist Video and Single (Shape Of You in both categories).

Former One Direction star Liam Payne is nominated for best single and video for "Strip That Down", which has now been a hit in the UK, Australia and US.

Dua Lipa, Sheeran, Stormzy and International Group nominees Foo Fighters have already been confirmed to perform along with Sam Smith, who has not picked up any nominations despite the strong sales for sophomore album The Thrill Of It All and No.1 single Too Good At Goodbyes.

Stormzy and Rag'N'Bone Man are also included on the best album shortlist for respective efforts Gang Signs And Prayer and Human alongside Lipa's eponymous debut and Sheeran's Divide as well as rapper J Hus's first release, Common Sense.


The best British band nominees are Gorillaz, London Grammar, Royal Blood, Wolf Alice and The xx.

Little Mix, Clean Bandit, Jonas Blue, Calvin Harris, Rag'n'Bone Man, J Hus, Jax Jones, Liam Payne and Dua Lipa also join Ed in the British Single category.

The victor of the British Artist Video award will be decided by the public, with one of the 10 acts eliminated each week until there are only five left on the night of the awards.

The Brit Awards were past year dominated by David Bowie, who won two posthumous awards for best solo artist and best album for "Blackstar".

Speaking on the red carpet, Liam Payne told BANG Showbiz: "It's really great and there are some great artists in those categories as well".

Those competing for the gong, include Calvin Harris, Clean Bandit, Jonas Blue, Little Mix, Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa and Anne-Marie. William Singe) - Mama Liam Payne (feat.
