Brit Awards 2016: Adele Leads Nominations, Set to Perform With Other Stars
After the audio glitches during Adele's Grammy performance, the star is hoping that this will no longer happen in the Brit Awards 2016 where she is set to perform and where she is nominated alongside other stars, the Irish Examiner reported.
The Brit Awards 2016 slated on February 24 has a star-studded lineup of performers aside from Adele, which includes, Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Little Mix, James Bay, The Weeknd, Jess Glynne and Rihanna.
Aside from that, the "Hello" singer also leads the nominations for four categories: British artist video of the year, British female solo artist, British album of the year and British single of the year. Like Adele, James Bay and Years & Years also received four nods each, the Telegraph reported.
Meanwhile, if Coldplay will still get their Brit Awards this year, the band will make history with the most number of wins for British album and British group. The band won British group in 2001, 2003 and 2012 and British album in 2001, 2003 and 2006.
This year, Coldplay's A Head Full Of Dreams album will be competing with Adele's record-breaking 25 album as well as the albums of Florence + The Machine, Jamie XX and Bay.
For the British female solo artist category, the late Amy Winehouse was nominated posthumously for the award alongside Glynne, Adele, Laura Marling and Florence Welch. For the international group category, Eagles Of Death Metal and Iris band U2 will be the contenders.
Although Taylor Swift won three Grammys this year and also won in the international female artist category last year, she is not nominated for this year's awards but her boyfriend DJ Calvin Harris is nominated for the British male solo artist, British single of the year, and British artist video of the year categories.
During the awards night, it will include a special tribute for David Bowie, who was named as the best British male artist twice in 1984 and 2014. He also received the outstanding contribution to British music award back in 1996.
For the second year, Ant and Dec will be hosting the Brit Awards that will take place in London's O2 Arena, the International Business Times reported.
