On Saturday, Adele and Ed Sheeran received four nominations for the 2022 BRIT Awards. Rappers Dave and Little Simz were also nominated four times for the awards, which dispensed with the traditional male and female categories for Britain’s yearly pop music honors.
Gender-neutral awards for local and international artists were announced last month, and performers are now running for either artist of the year or international artist of the year.
It was a good year for Adele. Her comeback album, “30,” was nominated for four Grammys, including best album, and “Easy On Me” was nominated for best song.
This year, Sam Fender is competing with her for the best album and artist awards.
Doja Cat, Olivia Rodrigo, Billie Eilish, and Lil Nas X are all against Taylor Swift in the international artist category.
Four new prizes will be at the 42nd British Recording Industry Awards (BRITs): alternative/rock act, hip-hop act, dance act, and pop/R’n’B artist.
The Rising Star award has already been given to Holly Humberstone, a rookie to the competition.
The BRIT Awards 2022 will be held in London on February 8th.
