It's that time of year again as we begin to approach awards season. I personally love awards season, not just for the red carpets and the lavish ceremonies, but because it's also lovely to see music and the arts being celebrated.
I love the BRIT Awards and have been lucky enough to attend every year since 2014. I'm really excited for the 40th anniversary show this year and again I am lucky enough to be in attendance.
Every year I make my nomination predictions, but I usually do this on Twitter. However, this year I thought I would make a change and post my predictions here instead!
When I usually make my predictions, I stick to the amount of artists/songs/albums that are nominated in the category (for example, Best Female will have five nominations). However, this year I wanted to predict anyone who I think is a contender to be nominated and not count how many are on my list (some may say that it increases my chances of being right...).
With a revamp of the categories this year, the BRITs have said that all categories are British unless it says otherwise, for example International Female and Male.
There are also less categories this year and fans no longer have the chance to vote on certain categories, however it has been said that the fewer categories mean there is now more time for the musical performances - which is arguably just as important on the night!
Take a look at my predictions below and let me know on Twitter (@Pop_Affairs) what you think!
Male Solo Artist
Female Solo Artist
Best New Artist (previously British Breakthrough Act)
Song Of The Year (previously British Single)
Mastercard Album Of The Year
International Male Solo Artist
International Female Solo Artist
