Following huge anticipation, the nominees for next month’s 2015 BRIT Awards have been announced, with Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran continuing their MOBO nods late last year.

Announced earlier this evening at the ‘BRITS Are Coming’ event (set to be broadcast on ITV1 later tonight), George Ezra received three nominations, (including the coveted ‘MasterCard British Album’ for his No.1 debut collection Wanted On Voyage). Meanwhile, hats were also tipped for BeyoncĂ©, Sia and Pharrell in their various International categories, whilst Clean Bandit and Duke Dumont both cleaned up with two nominations apiece, alongside Lily Allen, nominated for Best Female Solo Artist. There were surprise omissions, however, with Jungle’s summer 2014 hit Busy Earnin nowhere to be seen (alongside their Mercury Music Award-nominated self-titled debut album), whilst Gorgon City seemed have been surprisingly shunned too.

Check the full nominations below; the 2015 BRIT Awards take place next month at Wembley’s SSE Arena, with performances so-far confirmed from Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Taylor Swift, George Ezra and Paloma Faith – the latter three also confirmed to have received nominations this evening. Tickets to the 2015 BRIT Awards are also on sale now k direct from Ticketmaster UK. Click here for more information. More on BRIT Awards performers as and when we hear it.
