BRIT Awards 2011: Nominations

The BRIT Awards have become bigger and bigger each year since it started in 1977. They are important in celebrating British artists and their musical achievements over the course of the year. 
“The 68 nominations reflect all that is popular and credible in British music right now and sees the country’s most exciting, original and talented artists all up for the most coveted statue in The BRITs’ 30-year history, exclusively restyled for 2011 by Vivienne Westwood.” 

Last night the 2011 BRIT award nominations where released at the Launch party in The O2 which will be broadcast on ITV2 at 8pm.
Dominating the nominations are Tinie Tempah (4), Plan B (3), The XX (3) and Mumford & Sons (3). 
The voting is now open for these categories...
OK then, here are most of the nominees for you to feast your eyes on... and who I have tipped to win...


1. Mark Ronson

2. Paul Weller
3. Plan B 
4. Robert Plant
5. Tinie Tempah
It’s strange how these awards go but Tinie Tempah has been nominated for both Breakthrough and Best Male, showing how quickly the music industry works, I suppose. My 2 favourites of the year have been Plan B and Tinie Tempah, but I’d really like to see Plan B win this one as he has been working for so long, and I believe deserves it the most.

1. Cheryl Cole
2. Ellie Goulding
3. Laura Marling
4. Paloma Faith
5. Rumer
Ellie Goulding is definitely my favourite to win - she’s been everywhere this year and I think has the biggest voice - and work ethic, (being 2nd on the list of playing the most live gigs in smaller venue in 2010) - of them all. 


1. Ellie Goulding
2. Mumford & Sons
3. Rumer
4. Tinie Tempah
5. The XX
Everyone in this category deserves to be nominated, but for me Tinie Tempah has made the biggest waves this year, so will be the one to win. 


1. Biffy Clyro
2. Gorillaz
3. Mumford & Sons
4. Take That
5. The XX
Take That are the most likely to win this one, but I’d much rather see Mumford & Sons get some recognition.


1. Alexandra Burke ft Pitbull - All Night Long
2. Cheryl Cole - Parachute
3. Florence & The Machine - You’ve Got The Love
4. Matt Cardle - When We Collide
5. Olly Murs - Please Don’t Let Me Go
6. Plan B - She Said
7. Scouting For Girls - This Ain’t A Love Song
8. Taio Cruz - Dynamite
9. Tinie Tempah - Pass Out
10. The Wanted - All Time Low
Some of these songs on here are just plain awful, so I’m not going to say a word about those. 
The two that I've picked are actually my Top 2 of 2010 (from My Top 20 of 2010) - Tinie Tempah and Plan B.

1. Mumford & Sons - Sigh No More
2. Plan B - The Defamation of Strickland Banks
3. Take That - Progress
4. Tinie Tempah Disc - Overy
5. The XX - XX
The critics really do love The XX, so are in for a shot with this category.  However I really loved the characterisation in ‘The Defamation of Strickland Banks’, which was a piece of genius - a definite winner in my eyes. 

1. Bruce Springsteen
2. Cee Lo Green
3. David Guetta
4. Eminem
5. Kanye West
What with his many top 10 singles this year, not to mention the song of the year duet with Rihanna  ‘Love The Way You Lie’, Eminem should win this one. 

1. Alicia Keys
2. Katy Perry
3. Kylie Minogue
4. Rihanna
5. Robyn
Hmmmm, Katy Perry of Rihanna? Rihanna or Katy Perry? Nope, can’t choose between them either! Both have been the powerhouse ladies of pop in 2010.

1. Bruno Mars
2. Glee Cast
3. Justin Bieber
4. The National
5. Temper Trap
Oh please, no! Don’t let Justin Bieber win! I will do ANYTHING for that not to happen. Glee all the way - their joyful mix of music has been cheering up Monday nights all year.  

1. Arcade Fire
2. Black Eyed Peas
3. Kings of Leon
4. The Script
5. Vampire Weekend
Simply the best of the bunch. Although I do have a soft spot for Vampire Weekend also. 

1. Arcade Fire - The Suburbs
2. Cee Lo Green - The Lady Killer
3. Eminem - Recovery
4. Katy Perry - Teenage Dream 
5. Kings Of Leon - Come Around Sundown
There’s no stopping Katy Perry in this one only Eminem has the power to knock her off her pop pedestal. Will he succeed?

1. Jessie J (Winner)
2. James Blake
3. The Vaccines
The Critic’s choice has largely followed the same pattern as the Sound of 2011 results, with Jessie J winning yet again. Looks set to be a big year for her!

Tune in for the actual awards ceremony where we find out the winners! 
It will be held on Tuesday 15th February, hosted by James Corden and broadcast live on ITV1.
