Let’s face it, the real BRITs aren’t all that.

That’s why last year we held our own ceremony, with the British artists that actually are doing great things (so that’s Rustie not Robbie, Actress not Alt-J, Objekt not One Direction – you get the idea) rewarded for being superstars in our eyes. It proved pretty popular, so we decided to do it again this year. Today sees the announcement of five nominations for each category – bar Lifetime Achievement – with the winners announced on Wednesday, February 20. Turn the pages to see who made it.
