Who's going to get nods?
For Mastercard British Album, Take That have got to be front-runners, and I have a good feeling about Plan B and Ellie Goulding there too. Tinie Tempah might make the cut as well. Other contenders are Rumer and Eliza Doolittle. There's not a good rock contender this year, but even so, the album award tends to be a little more highbrow (as Brit Awards go), so I don't expect to see JLS, The Wanted or Olly Murs.
For International Album, I expect to see Eminem, Rihanna and Katy Perry, maybe The Script, Arcade Fire or Kings of Leon.
For Best British single, if they go with 10 nominees, with they usually do, I expect to see:
1. "The Flood" Take That
2. "Your Song" Ellie Goulding
3. "She Said" Plan B
4. "All Time Low" The Wanted
5. "When We Collide" Matt Cardle
6. "Pass Out" Tinie Tempah
7. "Dynamite" Taio Cruz
8. "Pack Up" Eliza Doolittle
9. "Kickstarts" Example
and 10. "You've Got the Love" Florence & The Machine
