Wednesday 24th January - The nominations for this year’s BRIT Awards with Mastercard were this afternoon revealed in ‘Bring on The BRITs with Mastercard: The 2024 Nominations’, a 30 minute special streamed across the BRITs' official Instagram and Facebook.  Host Yinka Bokinni took viewers through the category shortlists, with a few guest appearances from nominated artists and fellow broadcaster Jack Saunders.

The winners - who will each receive an award designed this year by visual artist and painter Rachel Jones - will be revealed at The BRIT Awards with Mastercard on Saturday 2nd March at The O2 arena, broadcast live on ITV1 and ITVX.

For 2024, The BRITs increased the number of nominees for both Artist of the Year and International Artist of the Year from five to ten,  a change aimed at improving representation and inclusion. More than half (55%) of the 2024 BRITs nominations feature women – either as a solo artist or as part of an all-woman group. This figure rises to 57% when including women in mixed gender groups.

A new genre award category R&B Act has been introduced for 2024, which along with Alternative/Rock Act, Dance Act, Pop Act, Hip Hop/Grime/Rap Act, collectively showcase the versatility, creativity and diverse styles of music in the UK. 

The winners of the genre awards will be determined by a public vote exclusively through Instagram, which will open on Thursday 1st February at 12 noon and close on Thursday 15th February at 6pm.

To vote, fans can either head to the BRITs page on Instagram (@BRITs), and comment on the category Reel of their choice using an artist specific hashtag, or by creating a Reel and using the @BRITs tag, and the artist specific # in the caption. Further information on the vote will be announced soon.

Taking the title of the most nominated artist in a single BRITs year, RAYE leads the charge with an incredible seven nominations in total – a first by any artist since The BRITs began in 1977, eclipsing the record to date of six held by Gorillaz (2002), Craig David (2001) and Robbie Williams (1999). In recognition of what has been a spectacular year for the independent artist, singer/songwriter and BRIT School graduate, she is nominated for: Artist of the Year, Mastercard Album of the Year, Best New Artist (along with Mahalia, Olivia Dean, PinkPantheress and Yussef Dayes), Pop Act, R&B Act, and receives two nominations in Song of the Year with Mastercard.

Six-time BRIT winner Dua Lipa receives three nominations this year; for Artist of the Year, Pop Act and Song of the Year with Mastercard, and is the first artist confirmed to perform on the main show on 2nd March. Dua Lipa last performed at The BRITs in 2021.

Central Cee and J Hus both receive four nominations, with Central Cee up twice for Song of the Year with Mastercard.

Along with RAYE, Dua Lipa, Central Cee and J Hus, this year’s Artist of the Year category also sees nominations for Arlo Parks, Dave, Fred again.., Jessie Ware, Little Simz and Olivia Dean.

Nominees for Mastercard Album of the Year include Blur, Little Simz and Young Fathers, who each receive three nominations in total. Also up for three awards are Calvin Harris, Dave and Olivia Dean.

The International Artist of the Year category is another immense showdown of global talent; with nominees Asake, Burna Boy, Caroline Polachek, CMAT, Kylie Minogue, Lana Del Rey, Miley Cyrus, Olivia Rodrigo, SZA and Taylor Swift. Olivia, Miley and SZA are also all nominated for International Song of the Year.

Other artists up for more than one award include: Fred again.., Mahalia, PinkPantheress and Yussef Dayes.

2024 also sees the first BRIT nomination for The Rolling Stones in over a decade; having been nominated four times previously in 1977, 1995, 1996 and 2013. 

Other artists nominated for a 2024 BRIT award include: Becky Hill, Billie Eilish, CASISDEAD, Charli XCX, Doja Cat, Ed Sheeran, Foo Fighters, Lewis Capaldi, Noah Kahan, Paramore, Peggy Gou, Rema, Stormzy, Tate McRae and Tyla.

In December, The BRITs announced the winner of the 2024 Rising Star supported by BBC Radio 1 award as The Last Dinner Party. They join the list of incredible artists who have won the award in previous years including Adele, Florence + The Machine, Sam Smith, Ellie Goulding, Emeli Sandé, Griff, and last year’s winner, FLO.

The winners of Songwriter of the Year and Producer of the Year will be revealed over the coming weeks, along with other show announcements.

Damian Christian, Managing Director and President of Promotions at Atlantic Records (part of Warner Music UK) and Chair of the BRIT Committee for 2024 said: “This year's BRIT nominees really highlight the incredible breadth and diversity within British music. From breaking artists to returning greats, and with artists spanning so many genres, this year's shortlist really feels like it has it all. I'd like to congratulate RAYE on her record-breaking seven nominations, as well as every other artist up for an award - I hope to see you all on the night!"

Dr. Jo Twist OBE, BPI Chief Executive  and YolanDa Brown OBE DL, BPI Chair said in a joint statement: “We congratulate all the nominees on their deserved recognition of a brilliant year in music, and in particular RAYE on her exceptional achievement of a record seven nominations, underlining a truly outstanding 12 months for her.  It’s also wonderful that women overall have performed so strongly across so many of the awards categories. We shared in last year’s disappointment that women were not represented in the British Artist of the Year nominations, and it’s heartening to see such a strong showing in the BRITs 2024 nominations. With such an exciting new generation of diverse talent coming through, we hope and will continue to work towards more balanced representation increasingly becoming the norm rather than the exception.”       

The BRITs Voting Academy, responsible for determining the shortlists and the overall winners for The BRIT Awards (bar Rising Star, Songwriter and Producer awards which are voted on or decided by separate panels), is refreshed annually, drawing on updated member data, to ensure relevance and diversity across its participants. The Voting Academy is composed of approx. 1300 individuals drawn from across the music industry, including artists, managers, media, producers, publishers, record labels, retailers and more.  For 2024, The Voting Academy achieved a balanced split of men and women and included a number of members who identified as non binary or who preferred not to specify their gender, whilst a quarter of its members identified as Black, Asian or ethnic minority background. The Academy and the voting process is overseen by Civica – an independent voting scrutineer.

This year, The BRITs are teaming up with Music Declares Emergency to amplify the NO MUSIC ON A DEAD PLANET campaign. This campaign has the support of thousands of artists including some of the biggest names in music and this new partnership with The BRITs will give music fans a way to get involved in positive climate action.  Music fans can get involved now by heading to nomusiconadeadplanet.org to sign up for monthly climate action challenges and music giveaways!

Mastercard returns as headline partner of The BRIT Awards for the 26th year, bringing cardholders closer to their passion for music through a range of BRITs experiences. Mastercard continues to partner with the BRIT School to support and celebrate the next generation of creative talent.

Also revealed today are new partnerships for The BRITs in 2024. Hilton will be this year’s Official Hotel Partner, and this collaboration will see the leading hospitality company associating with the biggest night in UK music with a unique ‘Stay on the Red Carpet’ moment, where nominees, performers and presenters will be invited to engage in some ‘pillow talk’ before their big night begins.

Media were invited to an official Nominations Event earlier today at the London Hilton on Park Lane, which has recently undergone a multi-million-pound renovation.

The partnership builds on Hilton’s ongoing commitment to supporting the music industry. In the UK, Hilton’s Secret Socials events have offered music fans and Hilton Honors members an exclusive opportunity to see global artists like they’ve never seen them before. BRITs fans will be able to bid for the eagerly anticipated first Hilton Secret Socials event of 2024, where lucky winners will be delighted with an intimate performance from a surprise BRIT nominated artist. 

There is a new shine at The BRITs this year. TRESemmé will debut at the awards as the Official Haircare Partner as well as named partner of the Best New Artist category. This partnership will coincide with the TRESemmé Lamellar Shine launch and include an on-site presence backstage at The BRITs with gifting opportunities, shiny content, influencer partnerships and much more.

The BRIT Awards 2024 with Mastercard will take place on Saturday 2nd March - once again back in a primetime Saturday night slot - and will broadcast live on ITV1 and ITVX - from The O2 arena

About The BRIT Trust  www.brittrust.co.uk

The BRIT Trust is the music industry’s charity, with a mission to improve lives through the power of music and the creative arts.  It is funded in large part through monies raised annually by The BRIT Awards and the Music Industry Trusts (MITS) Award.  Since its founding by UK record labels and the BPI in 1989, the Trust has distributed over £28 million to a broad range of progressive charities and causes around the UK that promote education and wellbeing through music, with over half this amount going to The BRIT School, the UK’s leading performing and creative arts school that is free to attend, and Nordoff and Robbins, the UK’s largest music therapy provider.  Other charities supported include Mind, to promote good mental health in schools, the music industry and the workplace; Music Support, the addictions and mental health charity; East London Arts & Music (ELAM), the free school creative arts sixth form; and Key4Life, which seeks to help young men in prison, or who are at risk of ending up there, a way out from a life of crime by drawing on their passion for music. More recently causes such as Come Play With Me, Heart ‘n’ Soul, Independent Venue Week, Liam Colgan Music Fund, Not Saints, and Sing Inside have been supported - you can learn more about their work and that of the BRIT Trust by reading The BRIT Trust Diaries, published exclusively by Music Week here.
