What can we expect from the show?

In 2008 Best British Album winners Arctic Monkeys took to the Brit Awards stage in hunting outfits with a plastic duck to accept their award. It’s hard to imagine any of this year’s contenders following in their footsteps – save maybe for Liam Gallagher, who’s in the running for the British Male Solo Artist gong.

Dua Lipa, whose single New Rules made her queen of the airwaves in 2017, leads the pack with five nominations, while the ever-present Ed Sheeran is hot on her feels with four. Oh, and don’t forget Stormzy either. He’s everywhere these days, and has two nominations.
