Disclosure lead Brit Awards 2014 nominations

James Blake, Drake and Janelle Monae also among this year’s nominees.

Disclosure have a chance to sweep the board at this year’s Brit Awards after being nominated in four categories.

The chart-topping brothers are up for best British group, best British breakthrough act, best song for ‘White Noise’ featuring AlunaGeorge, and best album for their debut Settle.

Close behind are fellow Mercury Prize nominees Rudimental with three nominations, including for ‘Waiting All Night’, the single featuring BBC Sound of 2014 runner-up Ella Eyre.

Mercury Prize winner James Blake gets a nod in the best British male solo artist category, while Drake and Justin Timberlake are nominated for best international male solo artist.

Janelle Monae makes an appearance in the best international female solo artist category, while Arcade Fire, Daft Punk and Haim are all in the hat for best international group.

The awards ceremony takes place at London’s O2 arena on February 19, with popular TV ‘funnyman’ James Corden presiding over the ceremony for the third and, we hope, final time.
