Ed Sheeran, Adele, Jessie J Lead 2012 Brit Award Nominations

Newcomers Ed Sheeran and Jessie J notched up 4 and 3 nominations respectively for the 2012 Brit Awards to be held at London’s O2 Arena on February 21st. While to nobody’s surprise, Adele  earned 3 nominations herself including Album Of The Year for her 16-million-sold-and-counting sophomore smash ’21’.

Kudos to Jessie J, as her début extravaganza ‘Who You Are’ was one of my fave albums of 2011, and I’m hooked on to her current single ‘Domino’ that’s rising up the charts worldwide.

Bjork gets a much deserved nod for her stunning new album ‘Biophilia’ in the category for the Best International Female Artist.
