  1. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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’.
