The nominations were announced by BBC Radio 1’s Nick Grimshaw and Griff, winner of the 2021 Rising Star Award winner Griff. They were announced across all @BRITs official social platforms (YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram).

She added: “I take none of this for granted I hope you know that. What a moment…all words are escaping me right now except for thank you. From sketchy demos on my £30 mic in my basement to the BRITs – dreams come true.”
