Award season is finally upon us. It’s that time of year again when the best in British music come together to celebrate their achievements, creativity, and the mark they’re making on the world. Whether they’re up-and-coming or renowned legends, the BRIT Awards is famed for heralding everybody’s achievements. Take a look at the nominees for this year’s award ceremony, that you can see on tour, below.
Causing a storm globally with the much awaited and ever-so-sassy new record 'reputation', Taylor Swift returned to 2017 with a musical bang. Named as one of Times' person of the year 2017 and on Forbes' 100 most powerful women, it's clear that Taylor means business when it comes to music. Not only this, since 2007 the singer has had a whopping 41 Top 40 singles worldwide; five number one albums globally, and won a staggering 278 awards. It seems that her nomination for International Female Solo Artist is well and truly deserved!
Needing little introduction, The Killers are the cornerstone of indie-rock across the globe; forming in 2001 and being a force to be reckoned with ever since. They have a whopping 20 chart-topping hits globally and, with five number one albums, they are the only international band to have consecutive number ones in the UK charts! With this, the UK clearly admire The Killers and that's why they've been nominated for International Group.
With her debut single 'Stone Cold Sober' entering the Top 20 UK Singles Charts upon first release, Paloma Faith started her musical career with a bang and has only continued to go from strength to strength since. Not only has her solo career been a huge success, with four chart-topping albums, Paloma has also collaborated with some of the biggest names - such as Sigma on the number one track 'Changing' in 2014. With her latest album peaking at number one in the UK, it's no surprise that she's up for British Female Solo Artist.
There isn't much that Arcade Fire haven't achieved; their work heralded in numerous best albums of all time lists; having won 24 renowned awards; recorded a song for The Hunger Games soundtrack and original score; having received an Oscar for Best Original Score from film Her; headlined Glastonbury; had four chart-topping albums worldwide, and 13 singles. This is the eighth BRIT award nomination and you can certainly see why.
