Brit Awards Nominations 2010 – Ruth’s Picks

The BRIT awards are by far my favourite awards show of the year, so last night I was SO excited when the nominations for this year’s gongs were announced! With Lady GaGa, Lily Allen and Pixie Lott leading the way it looks set to be about the girls this year.  As always I’ve already picked who I want to win, have a look below and see if you agree.

British Male Solo Artist

Calvin Harris
Dizzee Rascal
Paolo Nutini
Robbie Williams

robbie williams

And I give the award to…. Robbie Williams – he’s made an awesome comeback this year thanks to Bodies and You Know Me. He totally get’s my vote.

British Female Solo Artist

Bat for Lashes
Florence & the Machine
Leona Lewis
Lily Allen
Pixie Lott

Lily Allen

And I give the award to…. Lily Allen – whilst I’d like to think Lily will win, it looks pretty likely that Florence & the Machine will bag the gong. But as F&TM’s voice gets on my nerves a bit, I’m going to be backing my girl Lily.

British Breakthrough Act

Florence & the Machine
Friendly Fires
La Roux
Pixie Lott


And I give the award to…. JLS. Obviously. This past year has seen them kick total chart ass, even more so than Alexandra Burke, who pipped them to the post on The X Factor 2009. Good on you lads!

British Group
Friendly Fires


And I give the award to…. Muse – whilst I’d like to give it to JLS, they had the last one, so I think it’s only fair that I give someone else a chance, and that’s got to be Muse after pulling out awesome album after album.

MasterCard British Album
Dizzee Rascal – Tongue n’Cheek
Florence & the Machine – Lungs
Kasabian – West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum
Lily Allen – It’s Not Me, It’s You
Paolo Nutini – Sunny Side Up


And I give the award to…. Kasabian – West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum. Simply because it’s the only album out of the list that I actually went out and bought… that’s saying something right?

British Single

Alesha Dixon – Breathe Slow
Alexandra Burke Ft Flo Rida – Bad Boys
Cheryl Cole – Fight For This Love
Joe McElderry – The Climb
JLS – Beat Again
La Roux – In For The Kill
Lily Allen – The Fear
Pixie Lott – Mama Do
Taio Cruz – Break Your Heart
Tinchy Stryder Ft N-Dubz – Number 1

Cheryl Cole

And I give the award to…. Cheryl Cole – Fight For This Love – so many options here, but Cheryl never fails to get me dancing whenever that song comes on, and it still hasn’t gotten old. Kudos to Alisha, Alexandra, Lily and La Roux though (the remix of In For The Kill that’s on that telly advert is AMAZING). But just a point, WTF is McCelery – I mean McElderry – doing in there?

The Who Who Are You (1988)

Spice Girls

And I give the award to…. Spice Girls Wannabe/Who Do You Think You Are (1997) – considering that I’m only 22, and this is the earliest BRIT award performance that I remember (because of the whole union jack dress) I am going to have to give it to the girls.

International Male Solo Artist

Bruce Springsteen
Michael Bublé
Seasick Steve

Bruce Springsteen

And I give the award to…. Bruce Springsteen – No question really. I’ve grown up listening to Bruce, so if it was up to me he would win everything. Well, either him or Eminem. Just a point though, my dad WILL be gunning for Seasick Steve.

International Female Solo Artist

Lady Gaga
Norah Jones

Lady GaGa

And I give the award to…. Lady Gaga – Whilst the other girls have got the right bit of stuff (and if reports are to believed Lady GaGa might not) there’s no denying that most people talk about GaGa more than the other girls combined, so….

International Breakthrough Act
Animal Collective
Daniel Merriweather
Empire of the Sun
Lady Gaga
Taylor Swift

Empire of the Sun

And I give the award to…. Empire of the Sun – simply because they’re the only ones to have actually ‘broken through’ recently, everyone else have had their run of success, and Empire of the Sun are still waiting patiently.

International Album
Animal Collective Merriweather Post Pavilion
Black Eyed Peas The E.N.D.
Empire of the Sun Walking on a Dream
Jay-Z The Blueprint
Lady Gaga The Fame

Lady GaGa

And I give the award to…. Lady Gaga The Fame – I listen to it at the gym and it’s helped me lose two stone (mainly because I want GaGa‘s figure) – that’s reason enough for me.

But do YOU agree? Let me know! Ruth.x
