Les nominés aux BRIT Awards 2024 - HYTRAPE

The Brit Awards 2024 have revealed a dazzling list of nominees, with artists including Central Cee, J Hus, Dua Lipa, Blur, Calvin Harris, Young Fathers, Dave and Little Simz vying for the prestigious awards.

This year, it's RAYE who particularly stands out, with an impressive total of seven nominations, including for Artist of the Year, two entries in the Song of the Year category and a nomination for Album of the Year. year with his first album "My 21st Century Blues".

RAYE, which has already topped the charts at the start of 2023 and been shortlisted for the Mercury Prize, thus breaks the record previously held by Craig David, Gorillaz and Robbie Williams, each with six nominations. His success marks a remarkable turning point in his career, especially after his fight against his former label, Polydor.

Rappers Central Cee and J Hus follow RAYE closely with four nominations each. Also competing for three prizes are Blur, Calvin Harris, Dave, Little Simz, Olivia Dean, Young Fathers and four-time winner Dua Lipa.

In the international categories, solo artists like Burna Boy, Kylie Minogue, Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift are nominated, while groups including Foo Fighters, Paramore and Gabriel are in the running for international group of the year. The Rolling Stones are making a remarkable comeback, with their first Brit Awards nomination in over a decade, in the category of best alternative/rock group.

This year's Brit Awards also took a significant step towards gender equality, with 57% of nominees being women, when considering mixed groups. This follows last year's controversy when no women were nominated in the Best Artist category. This year, the Entertainer of the Year category was expanded to include 10 nominees, with six female artists such as Arlo Parks, Jessie Ware, Little Simz, Olivia Dean and Dua Lipa. Male nominees include Central Cee, Dave, J Hus and Fred Again.

The improvement in female representation is also notable in the International Artist of the Year category, with eight of the ten nominees being women. This progress marks an important milestone in the history of the Brit Awards, highlighting the importance of diversity and inclusion in the music industry.
