The Brit Awards 2014 – 19th February

The Brit Awards 2014 will soon be upon us and this year it’s tougher than ever to judge who’ll come out on top. Here’s a breakdown of the  awards and who’s up for them. The voting has now finished and they are being counted as we speak. We have compiled a playlist for you on Spotify of some of our favourite songs and who we think are going to do well at the awards, you can follow this here > Playlist <. The awards take place on Wednesday 19th February at 8.00pm. You should be able to hit the red button on any BBC channel to see the Brit Awards Live.


We could easily argue that hit-makers Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Lorde are clearly going to be romping away with such a strong catalogue of titles behind them this year. Of course, it’s never going to be an easy choice. The subtlety and nuance that we see in Ellie Golding’s performances are always going to be difficult to compete against and the talent and raw material of Ethan Johns will more than likely shine through.

David Bowie is up for Best Male Solo Artist and has ended up in the same category as Tom Odell. Odell has seen his popularity swell in recent months but will it be enough to beat the king of pop to the post. There is stiff competition in this category. This will indeed will be a great show to behold.

The most eclectic group of performers are in the British Female Solo Artist categoryBirdy, Ellie Goulding, Jessie J, Laura Marling and Laura Mvula. The female awards this year are really competitive and  I’d rather not put any money on it to be honest.

Who do you think will take an award home this year? Our predictions are in the photographs below, can you name them all. If not it may be time to brush up on your pop knowledge.
