Jessie Ware says 'music gods' are on her side after receiving two Brit Awards nominations
Singer is up for Best British Female and Best British Breakthrough at this year's ceremony
The 'Wildest Moments' singer scored nominations for Best British Female and Best British Breakthrough. Ware described the moment she heard she had been nominated in both categories as "wicked".
It's wicked, I can't believe it – I feel like the musical gods are on my side this year. They've been pretty good to me so far this year, so, it just keeps getting funner and funner really.
It's set to be an important night for the 28-year-old singer who has fond memories of watching the Brit Awards on TV when she was younger. "I remember when Jarvis Cocker got on stage, you know, Take That and the Spice Girls," she said.
Ware is up against Amy Winehouse in the Best British Female category, but the singer is pleased that Winehouse has received a posthumous nomination as "she is someone that I feel is really important to British music".
When asked if there was an album that she was looking forward to in 2013, Ware praised NME favourites Haim who she referred to as her "Jewish sisters".
She added: "They're just brilliant aren’t they? They make incredible pop music. They're incredibly talented girls, they're charismatic, they're fun, they don’t take themselves too seriously, and they're sisters. It's amazing!"
