The nominations for this year’s Brit Awards were announced today. Sam Smith dominates with five award nominations, including ‘British Male Solo Artist‘ and ‘British Album Of The Year‘, while Ed Sheeran is up for a total of four after achieving the biggest selling single and album of 2014. Another contender for multiple awards is George Ezra, the 21-year-old has had a meteoric rise in the past 12 months and is also up for four awards including ‘Best Breakthrough Act‘.
