Brit Awards 2015 Nominations Are Here


Last night, January 15, the Brit Awards revealed the nominations for their 2015 awards.


Included in the stream of successful musicians are Sam Smith with five nods, our very own homegrown Hozier as Best International Male, and St Vincent as Best International Female.

Clearly missed from the nominations is La Roux, her 2014 album Trouble in Paradise was released in July to a flurry of rave reviews and critics’ delight. It would have been nice to see her album in a category so male-dominated.

The Brit Awards will take place on February 25 at London’s O2 Arena.
