Ed Sheeran and Dua Lipa dominate Brit Award nominations

Ed Sheeran and Dua Lipa dominate Brit Award nominations

And he's no doubt hoping to add the awards for Best British Artist Video of the Year and British Single of the Year to the display, as he admitted that he's pretty chuffed to be nominated so early into his solo career.

Lipa is also up for British breakthrough artist alongside J Hus, Loyle Carner, Mercury Prize-winning Sampha and young rapper Dave, while she will face competition from Kate Tempest, Paloma Faith, Jessie Ware and Laura Marling for the British female solo artist prize.

He already has six wins and 17 nominations as part of Oasis, including an Outstanding Contribution to Music Award in 2007 and BRITs Album of 30 Years in 2010, but this is his first ever nomination as a solo artist.

One Direction singers Liam Payne and Harry Styles will also compete with former bandmate Zayn Malik in the category.

J Hus and Rag'n'Bone man have three nods each, while Stormzy, Loyle Carner, Little Mix and Clean Bandit have two.

Meanwhile, Dua Lipa leads the BRITs nominations with five, while Ed Sheeran follows with nods in four categories.

Taylor Swift, Lorde, Bjork, Pink and Alicia Keys are up for best global female, while Childish Gambino, Beck, DJ Khaled, Drake and Kendrick Lamar are up for best worldwide male.

Foo Fighters - who are confirmed to perform at this year's ceremony - are up against Arcade Fire, The Killers, LCD Soundstyem and HAIM for best worldwide band.
