So that time has come again where the BRIT Awards nominations are here. In this blog I will be telling you who is nominated in each category and who I think will win, and who I want to win and maybe some notes next to some.

First of all these are who are confirmed to perform so far: Emeli Sande, Ben Howard, Robbie Williams, Muse and Mumford & Sons.

Now, here’s the official 2013 BRIT Award Nominations…

British Breakthrough Act Nominees:
Top 5 selected by Voting Academy. Winner identified by public vote promoted by brits.co.uk and BBC Radio 1
• Alt-J (Infectious Music)
• Ben Howard (Island / Universal Music)
• Jake Bugg (Mercury / Universal Music)
• Jessie Ware (Island / PMR / Universal Music)
• Rita Ora (Columbia / Roc Nation / Sony Music)

Want to win: Jessie Ware

Think will win: Alt-J

This one is a hard one to pick. I would love Jessie Ware to win, though unfortunately I don’t think she will pick up an award. However this is an award where the public can vote and isn’t picked by the Brit Award people themselves therefore I feel Alt-J will win. Though I feel Rita or Ben Howard have a good chance.

British Female Solo Artist Nominees:
• Amy Winehouse (Island / Universal Music)
• Bat for Lashes (Parlophone / EMI Music)
• Emeli Sandé (Virgin / EMI Music)
• Jessie Ware (Island / PMR / Universal Music)
• Paloma Faith (RCA / Sony Music)

Want to win: Paloma Faith

Think will win: Emeli Sande/Amy Winehouse

Emeli Sande to me is most likely to pick up the most awards. With the best selling album of 2012 and being up for the most awards, she is most definitely going to go home with at least one. Oh, and being at the ceremony with she is because she’s performing gives you a better chance of winning. If Emeli doesn’t win this I recon Amy might though really hoping Paloma gets one this year!
