Brit Awards Nominees revealed Monday

Here's my prediction of who will be on the shortlists:

Best British Album

Arctic Monkeys - Favourite Worst Nightmare
Kaiser Chiefs - Yours Truly, Angry Mob
Klaxons - Myths of the Near Future
Kate Nash - Made of Bricks
Radiohead - In Rainbows

This category generally goes for more critically acclaimed works than the singles category, so I would expect to see these albums on here rather than say the big sellers from Leona Lewis or Mika. In the rare event they decide to re-nominate an album from last year (It's happened before for Radiohead and Craig David), then Amy Winehouse's Back to Black could make a return.

Best International Album

Arcade Fire - Neon Bible
Foo Fighters - Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace
Linkin Park - Minutes to Midnight
Bruce Springsteen - Magic
Kanye West - Graduation

Best British Single

This generally goes almost just by sales and has either 5 or 10 nominees (last year there was 11 for whatever reason):

If they do 5:

Leon Jackson - When You Believe
Leona Lewis - Bleeding Love
Mika - Grace Kelly
About You Now - Sugababes
Rule the World - Take That

If they do 10, then those 5 plus:

Hoosiers - Worried About Ray
Just Jack - Starz in Their Eyes
Kaiser Chiefs - Ruby
Kate Nash - Foundation
Mark Ronson Featuring Amy Winehouse - Valerie
