She’s tied for most nominations with James Bay and Years and Years, who both also secured four each. Calvin Harris and Jess Glynne each earned three nominations.
Former X Factor winners Little Mix scored theiir first ever Brit recognition with two nods for smash hit single Black Magic while Eagles of Death Metal earned a nomination for International Act alongside U2, who they shared the stage with just weeks after their gig became the focus of a terrorist attack in Paris.
