The BRIT Awards nominations are submitted by the voting academy which includes 1,500 members, including artists, managers, promoters, media figures and label staff. This year’s voting body achieved gender parity and 26% Black, Asian and minority ethnic representation.

AJ Tracey, who is up for multiple awards said: “I work really hard and getting the recognition feels amazing.” He also shared that he’s really looking forward to reconnecting with his fans in person “hopefully in the sun!”

Jessie Ware said: “It’s an honour to be nominated alongside all these incredible women”.

Joel Corry said that it’s “beyond his wildest dreams” to have had a No.1 song for so long and to be nominated for so many awards.
