The Brit Awards unveil 2020 nominees

Foals, Billie Eilish, Harry Styles and Stormzy are among the nominees.

With the ceremony set to take place next month, The Brit Awards have revealed the shortlists for who could be taking home the prizes this year!

Leading with the most nominations are Dave and Lewis Capaldi, who have both received four each, with DIY faves Foals and Bastille being tipped for the Group Of The Year award.

Once again the source of hot debate, the list has come under loads of criticism because it is super male dominated with not a single woman nominated for album of the year, despite the fact that Little Simz, Charli XCX and FKA twigs exist. Do better Brits, yeah?

Anyway, see the list of all nominations below, and catch the results on 18th February.
