Dua Lipa makes Brit Awards history

And he's no doubt hoping to add the awards for Best British Artist Video of the Year and British Single of the Year to the display, as he admitted that he's pretty chuffed to be nominated so early into his solo career.

It all confirms that Lipa is on course to cementing her place as pop music's next big thing. Additionally, the singer/model is the first female artist to receive five nominations in a single year.

The Best British Album category is the biggest award of the night will see the two stars go head to head with each other, as well as rapper J Hus, singer/songwriter Rag "N" Bone Man, and Stormzy.

Rapper Loyle Carner celebrated his double Brit Award nominations by taking his mother to a football match.

Foo Fighters - who are confirmed to perform at this year's ceremony - are up against Arcade Fire, The Killers, LCD Soundstyem and HAIM for best global band.

Ed Sheeran's latest best-selling album is up against four debut offerings at this year's Brit Awards, including one by breakthrough pop star Dua Lipa, who also dominated January 13's nominations.

She ended the year as the UK's most-streamed female artist on Spotify, while her eye-catching New Rules video has been watched more than 892 million times on YouTube.

"Three nominations. I at least have to take home one", the 21-year-old said.

On Instagram, Ed wrote, "Thanks for all my Brit award nominations, and well done to all the other nominees".

East London MC J Hus picked up three nominations for his debut album Common Sense, a border-hopping brew of the music that inspired him - from G-funk to bashment via afrobeat, United Kingdom garage and R&B.

He said: "100% we can turn it around this year".

The nominations were revealed in a live programme on ITV1, featuring performances from Paloma Faith, J Hus, Liam Payne and Clean Bandit.

Ed Sheeran will compete with Liam Gallagher, Loyle Carner, Rag'n'Bone Man and Stormzy for British Male Solo Artist at this year's awards. Zara Larsson, "Symphony" Dua Lipa, "New Rules" Ed Sheeran, "Shape of You" Harry Styles, "Sign of The Times" Jonas Blue Feat.

The awards ceremony in February will be hosted by comedian Jack Whitehall.
