  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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’.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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’.

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.
