Mahalia, Lewis Capaldi And Sam Fender Nominated For Brits Critics' Choice Award

Thursday, 29 November 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Mahalia, Lewis Capaldi And Sam Fender have been nominated for the Critics’ Choice award at next year’s Brits.

The gong most recently went to Jorja Smith and is designed to highlight new artists for the year ahead. Previous winners also include Adele, Sam Smith, Emeli Sandé, Ellie Goulding, Florence and the Machine, and Rag ’n’ Bone Man. Capaldi commented:

"I'm absolutely honoured to have been shortlisted for this year’s BRITs Critics’ Choice award alongside two unreal artists. Genuinely cannot believe I’m being included in something like this and do not think I’ve done enough to be deserving of it! That being said, from here on in I will insist that those around me, including my mother and father, refer to me only as 'BRITS Critics’ Choice Award Nominee, Lewis Capaldi."

“I can’t believe it," said Mahalia. "I’m truly honoured to be nominated for the BRITs Critics’ Choice Award. The last year has been surreal to say the least but this really is the cherry on top. Thank you so much to all those who voted for me.”

Fender added: “I’ve been watching The BRITs since I was a child, and my brother would let me stay up and watch them live; so to be nominated for the Critics’ Choice award is crazy.  What an honour! A big thank you to anyone who has put their faith in my music.”

The Critics’ Choice Award winner for 2019 will be announced on December 7, while the Brit Awards will take place in the new year, on February 20 at the O2 Arena in London.
