For the past twelve months one women’s voice alone has dominated the charts both sides of the Atlantic with her multi platinum selling album (21) and showering us with concerts (some of which had to be cancelled due to throat surgery) and her phenomenal singing ability; therefore it is no surprise that former BRIT school student Adele has been nominated for THREE top awards which include British Female Solo Artist, Mastercard British Album of the Year and best British Single for Someone Like You.
However, just tipping the 23-year-old, is newcomer Ed Sheeran whom is also up for FOUR awards. Sheeran took to social networking site Twitter to share his shock stating that he was ‘.. a bit blown away, thank you for all your support!!’. Sheeran then spoke with radio station Capital FM explaining: ‘It’s surprising I would say is the word. You just don’t expect to be in categories with people like Adele and Coldplay on your first year. To have the album nomination was the one that surprised me. I won’t win it because Adele will win it.’
Sheeran has been nominated for British Male Solo Artist, British Breakthrough Act, Mastercard British Album of the Year (+) and British Single (The A Team). Alongside this Emeli Sandé has been noted already as 1st place for Critics Choice after her astonishing last 12 months on the music scene.
Sheeran and Adele will battle out the Mastercard British Album of the Year alongside huge acts which include Coldplay, Florence & The Machine and PJ Harvey.
