Celeste, Arlo Parks and Yungblud are among the artists to be nominated for the 2021 BRIT Awards – you can see the full list of nominees below.
This year’s ceremony was pushed back three months from its traditional February date due to the coronavirus crisis, and will now take place at London’s O2 Arena on May 11, 2021. Performances on the night will come from the likes of Dua Lipa and Griff.
Those in the running for the 2021 BRIT Awards were announced today, March 31, by BBC Radio 1’s Nick Grimshaw and this year’s BRITs Rising Star winner Griff during a live-streamed online show.
Comedian, actor and writer Jack Whitehall will host the show for the fourth year in a row. That equals James Corden’s four-year stint as host from 2011-14.
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).
Dua Lipa, Arlo Parks and Celeste and Joel Corry lead the 2021 BRIT Awards list with three nominations apiece.
Parks, Lipa and Celeste are up for Female Solo Artist alongside Jessie Ware and Lianne La Havas. Lipa is also nominated for British Single (“Physical”) and Mastercard Album Of The Year (Future Nostalgia).
Speaking of her nods on Twitter, Arlo Parks wrote: “All I know is that I wouldn’t be here without my team, my family, every single person who’s played my tunes in their cars, bedrooms, kitchens & living rooms.”
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.”
Yungblud, meanwhile, is in the running for Male Solo Artist. He’s up against Corry, J Hus, Headie One and AJ Tracey.
“I have watched the brits every year since i can remember,” Yungblud wrote. “it’s what makes the British music scene so rock n roll. I would watch oasis and the artic monkeys cause trouble and I always wanted to be there and now to be nominated is mental!!!”
