Brit Awards 2018 Nominations Revealed With Dua Lipa Leading Nominees



Dua Lipa has scooped the most Brit Awards nominations, after they were revealed on Saturday (13 January) night.

The singer has received five nods – including Best British Solo Female and Best British Breakthrough – ahead of this year’s ceremony, which takes place next month.

Dua’s hit ’New Rules’ been nominated for Best Single and Best Video, while her self-titled debut was also honored in the prestigious Best Album category.

Meanwhile, Ed Sheeran also received four nominations, including Best British Solo Male and Best Album. 

Rag’n’Bone Man, Jonas Blue and J Hus also had three apiece, while there were also nods for the likes of Little Mix, Stormzy and Calvin Harris. 

There were a number of surprising snubs, however, with both Sam Smith and Rita Ora both notably absent from the list of nominees, despite being two of the most successful artists of 2017 and releasing music within the eligible period in order to receive a nomination.

The Brit Awards will take place on 21 February at London’s O2 Arena, hosted by Jack Whitehall.
