Dua Lipa Leads Brit Nominations

He already has six wins and 17 nominations as part of Oasis, including an Outstanding Contribution to Music Award in 2007 and BRITs Album of 30 Years in 2010, but this is his first ever nomination as a solo artist.

Dua Lipa is also among four artists whose first full-length studio albums have been nominated.

Dua Lipa will compete for best female artist against the likes of Jessie Ware and 2015 victor Paloma Faith.

Liam is up for British Artist Video Of The Year and British Single of the Year and is thrilled that his solo career is off to such a promising start.

And her competition in the breakthrough act category includes J Hus, Loyle Carner, Sampha and Santan Dave.

Liam is up against Harry Styles and Zayn Malik for Video of the Year, but the 24-year-old insists it's all good fun.

Taylor Swift, Lorde, Bjork, Pink and Alicia Keys are up for best worldwide female, while Childish Gambino, Beck, DJ Khaled, Drake and Kendrick Lamar are up for best global male.

In the global categories, Bjork, Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino, Drake, LCD Soundsystem, HAIM, Arcade Fire, Alice Wolf, The Killers, and Alicia Keys have been nominated.

Speaking on the red carpet, Liam Payne told BANG Showbiz: "It's really great and there are some great artists in those categories as well".

East London rapper J Hus and platinum-selling songwriter Rag'n'Bone Man have three nominations apiece, including for best album, while Stormzy's Gang Signs and Prayer is also nominated. "This is where I am from so it it's extra special".

'There is always time for us to come back, ' Liam assured. "I don't think our kid's got it in him anymore anyway, it seems to me like he's playing to the snobs and the world and the toffs".

The 2018 Brit Awards will take place 21 February at the O2 Arena in London, and the categories video of the year and breakthrough act are open to voting at the official website. Her single New Rules was a break out hit past year and she is nominated in five categories including best album, best female artist and best single.
