The nominees for the 2022 BRIT Awards have been revealed

Winners will be revealed at a ceremony in February

The likes of Adele, Ed Sheeran, Little Simz and Dave are among nominees for the 2022 BRIT Awards.

The nominations were announced today (December 18) during the one-hour The BRITs Are Coming TV special on ITV. Find the full list below.

Notably, the Best Male and Female Artist categories are not featured in next year’s awards, instead, a Best Artist category takes their place.


The Best New Artist category sees the likes of Central Cee, Griff, Joy Crookes, Little Simz and Self Esteem in the running.

On her nomination, Self Esteem – the nom de plume of Rebecca Lucy Taylor – said across two tweets: “WILD”. “Whatever happens, being a 35 year old woman nominated for a Brit Award is a really proud moment for me.

“In an industry obsessed with youth, especially the youth of women, I’m galvanised as fuck by this.”

Adele, Ed Sheeran, Little Simz and Dave lead this year’s list with four nominations each. These four artists, alongside Sam Fender, are each up for the inaugural Artist of the Year award.


On his double nomination in the Best Rock/Alternative Act and Song of the Year for ‘Little Bit of Love’, Tom Grennan tweeted: “Is this real life!!

“What an honour to be recognised for my music, this means the world.”

Among the other nominations in the Song of the Year category are Elton John and Dua Lipa for ‘Cold Heart’, Adele for ‘Easy On Me’, and Central Cee for ‘Obsessed With You’.

The International Song of the Year category features Lil Nas X (‘Montero(Call Me By Your Name’), Doja Cat (‘Kiss Me More’), Olivia Rodrigo (‘Good 4 U’), Drake (‘Girls Want Girls ft. Lil Baby’) and The Kid LAROI with Justin Bieber (‘Stay’), among others.

Nominations for producer and songwriter of the year are slated to be announced in January.

All winners will be revealed at the BRIT Awards ceremony, taking place at London’s O2 Arena on Tuesday February 22 and broadcast exclusively through ITV. The ceremony will be hosted by Mo Gilligan, who replaces Jack Whitehall after four consecutive years.
