Who is nominated for a Brit this year?

Raye has achieved a remarkable feat in Brit Award history by earning seven nominations, the most ever for a single artist in a year, and already has been named 2024’s songwriter of the year ahead of the ceremony.

But the 26-year-old Londoner will face tough competition in categories such as Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, Best New Artist, Pop Act, R&B Act, and Song of the Year.

Kylie Minogue is up for the International Artist award and will be honored with the prestigious Global Icon Award at this year's ceremony.

She said ahead of the event: “I am beyond thrilled to be honoured with the Global Icon Award and to be joining a roll call of such incredible artists.

“The UK has always been a home from home, so the BRITs have a very special place in my heart."

Chase & Status, who released Disconnect with Hill last year, were named the 2024 producer of the year while British indie rock band The Last Dinner Party have already been named as Brits Rising Star.

Who designed the Brit Award this year?

Critically acclaimed visual artist and painter Rachel Jones designed this year’s Brit Award.

She said of the coveted commission: “There's such a major legacy around the position of being asked to design the award, so it was a huge honour to be chosen for this year.

“Designing the award is especially exciting because people will be able to see my interest in working with other mediums.

“I don't want to be known as just a 'painter', and having collaborated recently with a composer and a poet on my opera [Joseph Howard and Victoria Adukwei for Hey, Maudie], I'm finally starting to enter different spaces and develop new perspectives on my work.

“It's really incredible that this is part of that journey.”
