The BRIT Awards have announced their nominations for 2022, promising a historic award ceremony for the new year. Last month the BRIT Awards announced that going forward there will no longer be gendered categories at the award ceremony, the announcement received mixed reactions from the public, with some praising the forward-thinking approach others were worried that with the gender neutral categories many deserving female acts would be overlooked. However with the gender neutral categories now in place this year had the most female nominees in over a decade which many are excited for.

The favourites for this year are Adele, Little Simz, Ed Sheeran and Dave, with all of them being tied for the most nominations for the year, all were nominated for Artist and Album of the year. Adele, Ed Sheeran and Dave will also go head-to-head for the Song Of The Year Award. Little Simz and Dave will also go head-to-head for the best Hip Hop/Grime/Rap Act.

Small Green Shoots once again this year had the opportunity to shortlist the nominations for the Brit Awards.
