The BRIT Awards 2014: our predictions

Here's who we think will be taking home a BRIT Award this year

1/6

MasterCard British Album of the Year

Nominated:
Bastille
Disclosure
Laura Mvula
London Grammar
Tom Odell

We say: It has to be Disclosure’s‘Settle’. It’s an end-to-end classic of British dance that we made our album of the year, so let’s hope the BRITs judges agree.

2/6

British Group

Nominated:
Arctic Monkeys

Bastille
Disclosure
One Direction
Rudimental

We say: Apologies to 1D, but the Arctic Monkeys both sound better and wear much better suits. The Sheffielders have gone from boys to men in the last year, adding a sexy flair to their songwriting skills too.

3/6

British Male Solo Artist

Nominated:
David Bowie

Jake Bugg
James Blake
John Newman
Tom Odell

We say: The stage is set for the comeback queen – the question is will David Bowie break cover and collect the prize? Either way, Bowie richly deserves the award for the phenomenal rock of ‘The Next Day’.
4/6

British Female Solo Artist

Nominated:
Birdy

Ellie Goulding
Jessie J
Laura Marling
Laura Mvula

We say: It’s definitely a battle of the Lauras. Our pick would be Laura Mvula. The Birmingham-born singer’s heavenly and spiritual debut album ‘Sing to the Moon’ really is in a class of its own.
5/6

International Female Solo Artist

Nominated:
Janelle Monáe
Katy Perry
Lady Gaga
Lorde
Pink

We say: We’d love to see Ms Monáe win, if only to see how kookballs her speech would be. It has to be Lorde though. Not only is she a stunning singer, she’s a canny critic of pop itself, as ‘Royals’ proved.
6/6

International Group

Nominated:
Arcade Fire
Daft Punk
Haim
Kings Of Leon
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

We say: Never bet against Frenchmen wearing helmets. Daft Punk have this one sewn up simply due to the fervour they created globally for the long-awaited ‘Random Access Memories’.
