Brit Awards 2015: The Nominations

brit awards 2015

The nominations for the 2015 Brit Awards have been revealed. The ceremony itself takes place on the 25th of February. The list of acts is a lot more varied than I anticipated and there’s a lot of musical talent being praised. As is always the case with these kind of awards you can never be too sure whether it’s about musical talent or just popularity, especially with the international categories, either way I think it would be a safe bet to say that a fair share of the awards will go to Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith.
