Brit Awards 2019: Who is nominated?

The biggest night in British music returns for the 39th year running and Hugh Jackman, Pink and Dua Lipa are among the stars taking to the stage at the Brit Awards.

The annual awards ceremony takes place at the O2 Arena in London and comedian Jack Whitehall will host for the second year on Wednesday evening.

The Brits will be opened by Hollywood star Jackman, who portrayed PT Barnum in The Greatest Showman.

He will kick-off proceedings with a performance from the hit film, which has dominated the charts in the UK since the soundtrack was released in December 2017.

Other music stars taking to the stage include Little Mix, The 1975 and Ezra and US pop star Pink will close the show.

Women dominate this year's shortlist, with female solo artists Lipa and Anne-Marie both earning four nominations apiece.

Pink will be the first international artist to be honoured with the outstanding contribution to music prize.

Lipa, who won two Brits last year and recently took home two Grammy Awards, is nominated for four accolades at this year's ceremony across two categories.

She secured nods for her track IDGAF and her collaboration with Scottish DJ Calvin Harris, One Kiss, while both songs are shortlisted for British single and British video of the year.

Lipa will appear on stage on the night in a four-way collaboration with Harris, Sam Smith and Rag'N'Bone Man.
