Brit Award Nominations and SCP Predictions

The UK is abuzz at the minute, with talk the forthcoming coming Brit Awards 2012 and who will be walking away with one or more of the winning trophies. With Adele, Ed Sheeren and Jessie J nominated in over 4 categories each, it going to be a interesting night. 

Rihanna, Coldplay, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Noel Gallagher, Florence & The Machine, Olly Murs, Blur and Adele are all set to perform but you know there will a few other surprises thrown in! SCP will be watching and we have cast our eye into our pop crystal ball to bring you our predications of who we think will win on the night.

The Brit Awards Ceremony are being held on the 21st February 2012.

British Male Solo Artist
Ed Sheeran
James Blake
James Morrison
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds
Professor Green

Interesting bunch of British male artist this year, Professor Green has taken on the charts however we predict that Ed Sheeran will win.

British Female Solo Artist
Florence & the Machine
Jessie J
Kate Bush
Laura Marling

Though Jessie J  has had a brilliant year, you can not deny that last year belonged to fellow London Brit School alumni Adele and will sweep the board at this years Brits.

British Breakthrough Act
Anna Calvi
Ed Sheeran
Emeli Sandé
Jessie J
The Vaccines

The Vaccines had a great year with their album What Did You Expect from The Vaccines being the biggest selling debut by a band that year and Emeli Sandé
is fastly becoming someone to talk note of, however the breakthrough act will go to Jessie J

British Group
Arctic Monkeys
Chase & Status

Hmm this could be a tight call to be honest, however Coldplay have had a great year with the release of their album Mylo Xyloto and reckon the boys will take the award.

British Single
Adele - Someone Like You
Ed Sheeran - The A Team
Example - Changed The Way You Kissed Me
Jessie J ft Bob - Price Tag
JLS ft Dev - She Makes Me Wanna
Military Wives/Gareth Malone - Wherever You Are
Olly Murs ft Rizzle Kicks - Heart Skips A Beat
One Direction - What Makes You Beautiful
Pixie Lott - All About Tonight
The Wanted - Glad You Came

Good to see loads of boy bands up for Single of the Year and we reckon it will come down to The Wanted, One Direction or Adele. Though we think Someone Like You is hands down brilliant we have a feeling that One Direction will take it due to popularity with the millions of screaming girls!

MasterCard British Album of the Year
Adele - 21
Coldplay - Mylo Xyloto
Ed Sheeran - +
Florence & The Machine - Ceremonials
PJ Harvey - Let England Shake

No need to discuss this one – Adele

International Male Solo Artist
Aloe Blacc
Bon Iver
Bruno Mars
David Guetta
Ryan Adams

Interesting choices for International Male Solo Artist and its been a great year for David Guetta ( though he is more a DJ/producer not a singer but don’t get us started on that debate again) however think Bruno Mars might take it.

International Female Solo Artist
Lady Gaga

It would be lovely to give Beyoncé the award as her album 4  was underrated however Lady Gaga will take it.

International Group
Fleet Foxes
Foo Fighters
Jay Z/ Kanye West
Lady Antebellum
Maroon 5

Maroon 5 just for the track Moves Like Jagger

International Breakthrough Act
Aloe Blacc
Bon Iver
Foster The People
Lana Del Rey
Nicki Minaj

Bit early for Lana Del Rey to start winning prizes, Foster The People album is brilliant, however it will be our favourite alter ego Nicki Minaj

Outstanding Contribution to Music Winner is Blur

And the Critics Choice has been awarded to Emeli Sandé

Who do you think will win?
Remember to tune in on February 21st. Here's our favourite performance from last year.
