florence nominated for three BRITs

Having claimed last year’s Critics’ Choice prize, Florence + The Machine are up for another three BRIT Awards at the ceremony on February 16, in the running for Best British Album, Best British Female Solo Artist and Best British Breakthrough Act. As the nominations party continues at the IndigO2 tonight, the full list of nominees has been posted up on the BRITs’ official site. Most notably, Lily Allen and first-time nominees Pixie Lott and Lady Gaga are also up for three awards. Oh, and with it being the BRITs’ 30th anniversary and all, a special category has been announced to honour the best British albums of the past 30 years. The best they could come up with for the women? Dido’s No Angel, Duffy’s Rockferry and Sade’s Diamond Life. There are no words. Or surnames, for that matter.

Comment by P.Viktor

I cant say im suprised that Little Boots has been left out of the Brit nominations 2010, she has a such a high degree of competition, Lady gaga is just miles ahead in voice, song writing, peformance, La Roux writes better tunes, Florence is a great singer and performer, pixie lott is not even in this category she has been moulded by a major label for 4 years so it is no wonder she did well commercially. I completely forgot about little boots until i read this post, not a good sign!! Suprised her last single only went to 84 in the charts cos the amount of hype and press she does, it usually works! I guess you can take a horse to water but you cant make it drink.

Oh yeah really stoked to see Ladyhawke up there, she also didnt do well commercially either (she didnt have the same press as boots though) but she is so bloody real, not an ounce of pretense, just pure talent. Gaga will probs win it though!
