BRIT Awards 2017 nominations revealed

BRIT Awards 2017 nominations revealed

The nominations for this year’s BRIT Awards have been revealed, with a number of grime artists gracing the 2017 shortlist.

The nominations were announced as part of a televised launch event on ITV, hosted by Emma Willis and featuring performances from the likes of Craig David, Calum Scott, Christine And The Queens and Rag’N’Bone Man.

One of the most notable aspects of this year’s list of nominees is the diversity of talent and a strong grime showing, after last year’s awards drew criticism for an alleged lack of diversity and grime artists. The fallout led to an overhaul of the BRITs voting academy in a bid to create a more representative event.

And it appears to have worked.

Up for British Male Solo Artist are Craig David, David Bowie, Kano, Michael Kiwanuka and Skepta, while Anohni, Ellie Goulding, Emeli Sandé, Lianne La Havas and Nao are nominated for British Female Solo Artists.

Meanwhile, battling it out for British Album Of The Year are The 1975 (I Like It When You Sleep For You Are Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It), David Bowie (Blackstar), Kano (Made In The Manor), Michael Kiwanuka (Love & Hate) and Skepta (Konnichiwa).  

Elsewhere, the winner of the BRITs 2017 Critics Choice Award was announced last month, with Rag'N'Bone Man triumphing over Dua Lipa and Anne-Marie.
