Aussie joins Adele, Eilish in Brits voting

Adele and Ed Sheeran head the list of candidates for the 2022 BRIT Awards, with four nominations each.

The global superstars are joined in the voting for the prestigious awards by Sydney artist The Kid Laroi, who is nominated alongside Justin Bieber for their collaboration Stay in the best international song category.

Rappers Dave and Little Simz also each received four nominations for the awards, as Britain’s annual pop music honours dispenses with male and female categories.

Organisers said last month they were introducing gender-neutral awards for local and international artists, with performers in the running for artist of the year or international artist of the year.

British singer Adele, who has topped charts around the world with her comeback album 30, secured four nods, including nominations for best album, best artist and best song for Easy On Me.

She faces competition in the best album and artist categories from singer-songwriter Sam Fender.

In the international artist category, Doja Cat, Olivia Rodrigo, Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X are each nominated for two awards and all are up against Taylor Swift.

Next year’s BRITs, the 42nd edition of the awards show, also introduces four genre awards: alternative/rock act, hip-hop/grime/rap act, dance act, and pop/R’n’B act.

Organisers have already announced 22-year-old singer-songwriter Holly Humberstone as the winner of the Rising Star award.

The BRITs will take place on February 8 in London.
