With Adele, Sam Smith and Ozzy Osbourne all picking up awards – plus double wins for Wet Leg and Album Of The Year recipient Harry Styles – last year’s Grammys ceremony was a big night for us Brits.
The question is – what do our favorite UK-based artists think this time around?
Although American singer-songwriter SZA leads the way in terms of overall nominations, music producers Mark Ronson and Fred Again.. are the top-nominated Brits, with four nominations each.

Of the night’s main categories, Dua Lipa is nominated for Song Of The Year for her contribution to the Barbie soundtrack, Dance The Night, and she is also the only Briton on the list of confirmed performers so far.
Labrinth is competing for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for his collaboration with Billie Eilish Never Felt So Alone, and Ed Sheeran has been nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album for the first of two albums he will release in 2023, Minus.labyrinth

Ed has stiff competition in the category with Kelly Clarkson, Miley Cyrus, Olivia Rodrigo, and Taylor Swift, but it’s worth noting that he’s done it once before (and that time it was against four female artists, too).
