    Not being done this year because of the 'Thirty Year Brit Awards' (Performance & Album).

    No international group award either.

    That strikes me as pretty random to be honest. And i wouldn't be particularly pleased if i were an international band... they deserve their recognition too!

    Why on earth is Joe Mcelderry nominated? Yeah,he may have sold a ridiculous amount for 'the climb' but should you really be nominated for a Brit?!?!?!
    Also,I'm glas Taylor Swift is nominated! She won't win but i'm glad nonetheless

    Other than that,no big suprises....except maybe VV Brown and Noisettes being snubbed. SuBo was never going to get recognition for her album of cover songs no matter how much she sold lol

    The fact JLS are nominated for so many awards is a joke.

    Joe as bad as he is, is apparently nomiated as the top ten singles on sales and airplay are the chosen ones.

    an album full of covers is probably why she is not nominated.

    I could feign outrage that Joe McElderry's wet fish cover of a Miley Cyrus song has somehow been shortlisted as one of the year's best singles, but I really do not care at all.

    JLS for the win. If I were La Roux/Friendly Fires/Animal Collective/other credible nominated act, I don't think I'd want the award anyway.

    I don't really listen to that much music these days as it all sounds quite samey and immature, even the 'underground' or 'alternative' stuff.

    Well, the Brit Awards have never been known for the quality of the acts being Nominated.

    Honestly, this list makes me depressed.

    only credible people win Best Group.

    JLS are an embarassment to music.
