BRITISH SINGLE NOMINATIONS ANNOUNCEDThe British Single category for the BRIT Awards 2017 pits last year’s biggest and best tracks against each other. Familiar BRITs faces Coldplay, Calvin Harris, Clean Bandit, Tinie Tempah, Zayn and Little Mix are nominated alongside newcomers Alan Walker, Calum Scott, James Arthur and Jonas Blue.
This is the second consecutive year that Calvin Harris and Little Mix have been nominated in this category and they are both nominated in the British Video of the Year Category too. Little Mix also have a third nomination in the category for British Group, joining Skepta as the most nominated artist of The BRITs 2017.
Coldplay, Clean Bandit and Tinie Tempah are also no strangers to British Single nominations, having all been acknowledged in this category before. Coldplay have previously won a whopping nine BRIT awards - could this be their tenth?
This is the first time that Zayn has been nominated as a solo artist having been nominated for nine awards, and winning five, with One Direction.
