The shortlists are out for this year's super-blokey Brit Awards

The nominations are out for this year's Brit Awards.

Dave and Lewis Capaldi (pictured) are leading the noms with four nods each, while Mabel and Stormzy are just behind with three apiece, and Harry Styles and Michael Kiwanuka are up for two. 

While the list also features nods to Billie Eilish, Lizzo, Charli XCX, FKA twigs and more, it's an incredibly blokey showing this year, with identical Male Solo Artist and Album of the Year lists, an all-male list for Group of the Year, and very skewed Song of the Year and New Artist categories.

The BRIT Awards 2020 will be exclusively broadcast on ITV on Tuesday 18th February, from The O2 Arena in London.

Mystery Jets: "You never know what the future holds"

At the back end of last year, Mystery Jets were all prepped to drop their brand new album. Then they weren’t. Six months later and a band-member down, they’re back on track (pretty much) and ready to go.
