BRIT Awards announce 2014 nominations
The BRIT Awards have announced their list of nominees with Bastille and Disclosure leading the way.

Bastille and Disclosure have landed four nominations at this year’s BRIT Awards that will take place on 19 February at the The O2, London.

Others who racked up the nominations included Ellie Goulding and Rudimental; they have both been nominated for three awards. Meanwhile Arctic Monkeys, who will open the show, also scooped two nominations.

David Bowie – who last won a BRIT 30 years ago – has been nominated for the Best British Male and Best Album, the same award that the Arctic Monkeys are up for.

The event will be hosted by comedian James Corden for the fourth consecutive time. However, he has said that it will be his last time hosting the star-studded event.
