The 2020 Brit Awards nominations were announced on Saturday January 11.

Someone You Loved hitmaker Lewis Capaldi has continued his stunning success by bagging four nods - the most of any artist - including for Best New Artist and one in the prestigious British Album of the Year category, for his debut LP, Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent.

The record is nominated alongside Stormzy's Heavy Is The Head, one of three nominations the grime star received, as well as Dave's Psychodrama, Harry Styles' Fine Line, and Michael Kiwanuka's KIWANUKA.

The same five artists are up for the British Male Solo Artist award, while Mabel, Charli XCX, Mahalia, Freya Ridings, and FKA Twigs will compete for the British Female Solo Artist gong.

Scottish singer-songwriter Capaldi, 23, also received a Song of the Year nod for Someone You Loved, as did Stormzy for Vossi Bop. Other songs nominated include Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber's I Don't Care, Sam Smith and Normani's Dancing with a Stranger, and Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus' collaboration, Nothing Breaks Like A Heart.

Coldplay, Foals, Bastille, Bring Me the Horizon, and rap duo D-Block Europe are the nominees for Best British Group.

Among the non-British artists to receive recognition in the international categories are Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, Lizzo, Post Malone, Bruce Springsteen, Camila Cabello and Lana Del Rey.

Soul star Celeste has already been announced as the winner of the BRITs Rising Star accolade.

The ceremony will be hosted by comedian Jack Whitehall and will take place at London's O2 Arena on 18 February 2020.
