Dua Lipa beats Ed Sheeran in Brit Awards 2018 nominations

Dua Lipa beats Ed Sheeran in Brit Awards 2018 nominations

7:36pm 13th January 2018
(Updated 3:15am 14th January 2018)

Pop artist Dua Lipa has beaten Ed Sheeran for most nominations at this year's Brit Awards.

The 22-year-old's self-titled album won the most nods, including British female solo artist, british single, album of the year, video of the year and breakthrough act.

Sheeran's Divide album emulated Dua Lipa's score minus the breakthrough act, which he no longer qualifies for.

Gorillaz, the xx, Liam Gallagher, Sampha, Wolf Alice, Stormzy, Kate Tempest, Harry Styles and Jessie Ware are among the British musicians up for awards.

In the international categories, Bjork, Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino, Drake, LCD Soundsystem, HAIM, Arcade Fire, Alice Wolf, The Killers, and Alicia Keys have been nominated.

Liam Payne, who was nominated for best British single and best video for Strip That Down, has hailed the power of British music.

"It's been amazing, I can't believe I'm stood here by myself at this pre-show party and having two nominations, fantastic," he said.

"To be one of the people who are mentioned among these names... I mean last year was such a great year for music with Ed coming through and all sorts of different things."

The 2018 Brit Awards will take place 21 February at the O2 Arena in London, and the categories video of the year and breakthrough act are open to voting at the official website.
