James Bay, George The Poet, Years & Years lead Brits Critics’ Choice shortlist


Brit Awards 2015

The nominees for next year’s Brits Critics’ Choice Award have been released, and predictably they bear a striking resemblance to the MTV Brand New shortlist which was also unveiled earlier this week.

James Bay, George The Poet and Years & Years are leading the way, apparently chosen by a panel of ‘industry experts’ from over 100 candidates.

“I still can’t believe it,” Bay has said. “As much as I hoped, being nominated for the BRITs Critics’ Choice Award is not something I ever imagined would actually happen. What a huge honour.”

“Having grown up watching the BRITs we’re unbelievably honoured and to be honest quite overwhelmed to be included in the Critics’ Choice Award,” Years & Years added. “We’re so grateful to be making music and having this sort of recognition is crazy and ridiculous and nuts in a really good way.”

We won’t have to wait long for the winner, who will be announced on December 4th ahead of the next Brit Awards’ ceremony early next year.
