The nominees for the BRIT Awards 2023 have been unveiled today (January 12), with the likes of Sam Smith, Lewis Capaldi, and Taylor Swift in the running.

The ceremony will take place at London’s The O2 on February 11 and will be hosted by comedian Mo Gilligan. The show will be broadcast live on ITV1 and ITVX.

Sam Smith, Aitch, and Taylor Swift are all in the running for two awards each, with Smith up for Best Pop/R&B Act and Song Of The Year for “Unholy,” their collaboration with Kim Petras. The two will reunite on the BRITs stage for a special performance at the event.

Aitch is up for Song Of The Year for his Ashanti-featuring track “Baby” and Best Hip-Hop/Grime/Rap Act. Taylor Swift could take home International Artist Of The Year and International Song Of The Year for “Anti-Hero.”

Elsewhere, Lewis Capaldi is nominated for Song Of The Year for “Forget Me.” “It’s an honor to be nominated for British Song Of The Year,” he said in response to the news. “I very much look forward to seeing Harry Styles accept the award for ‘As It Was’.”

Four categories are open to public voting – Best Pop/R&B Act, Best Rock/Alternative Act, Best Dance Act, and Best Hip-Hop/Grime/Rap Act. Fans can vote for who they want to win each award 10 times per category a day on TikTok from 12pm on January 19 until 12pm on February 2.

Last month it was announced that the fast-rising British girl group FLO had won the BRITs 2023 Rising Star Award. They are the first girl group to win the award and the first group of any type to win it since Florence + The Machine in 2009.
