“Battle For BRITs”

 

We’re very pleased to announce that David Bowie has received two nominations for this year’s BRIT Awards.

 

He is nominated for both British Male Solo Artist and Mastercard British Album Of The Year for ★.

MASTERCARD BRITISH ALBUM OF THE YEAR

The 1975 - i like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it

Bowie won the best male category in 1984 and also went on to receive an “outstanding contribution” award in 1996.

 

He won British Male Solo Artist in 2014, for which Kate Moss collected the statuette, while also delivering a particularly memorable message from Bowie.

 

In 2016, following moving spoken word tributes from singer Annie Lennox and actor Gary Oldman, Oldman accepted the BRITs Icon Award on Bowie’s behalf. Lorde then joined David Bowie’s touring band for a beautiful and heartfelt rendition of Life On Mars? 

 

The BRIT Awards 2017 take place at London’s O2 Arena on 22 February and will be broadcast live on ITV.
