Skepta and David Bowie are among the leading nominees at this year’s BRIT Awards.

Set to take place on February 22, this year’s awards – which will be its 37th edition – will again be held at The O2 in London, but will see a new host in Canadian singer Michael Bublé. Live performances on the night will come from The 1975, Emeli Sandé and Little Mix, with more live acts set to be announced in due course.

Announced during tonight’s ‘BRITs Are Coming’ nominations launch, Skepta landed three nominations – including Album of The Year for his fourth studio album, ‘Konnichiwa’ – while Bowie has two nominations for Album of the Year (for his final album, ‘Blackstar’) and British Male Solo Artist.

Leonard Cohen joins Bowie in being awarded a posthumous nomination, with Cohen being recognised in the International Male Solo Artist category for his first ever BRIT Award nomination. Both artists passed away last year.

Elsewhere in the list, Little Mix join Skepta in bagging three nominations, including a nod for their song ‘Shout Out To My Ex’ in the British Single category. The 1975, Kano and Coldplay are among the artists to land two nominations each, while sisters Beyoncé and Solange have both been recognised in the International Female Solo Artist category.

A Tribe Called Quest have been nominated in the International Group category, as have Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. Blossoms, meanwhile, have been nominated alongside Stormzy in the British Breakthrough Act category, while Anohni leads the nominees in the British Female Solo Artist.
