In today’s announcements it was revealed that Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran are in the lead with five nominations each, going head to head in the category for Best Male Solo Artist, as well as Album of the Year and Best British Single.

Fronting the nominations for the ladies is X Factor contestant Ella Henderson who has two nominations, and will be fighting off the likes of Paloma Faith and FKA Twigs when the awards take place.

Also up for multiple awards is the highly buzzed about rock duo Royal Blood who will take on George Ezra, who finds himself with four nominations of his own, in the British Breakthrough Act category.
