    [UK] The Brits Are Coming To Town!

    brits2006.jpgA host of bands and celebs turned up at London's Riverside Studios to celebrate the launch of the Brits 2006. Coldplay, who picked up the Group and Album awards in both 2001 and 2003, are up for Best British Album, British Group, British Live Act and British Single.


    Rounding off a good year for the new boys, Canadian indie rockers the Arcade Fire, who had their first UK hit last April, dominated the international categories with three nominations.


    Another newcomer, Scottish singer-songwriter, KT Tunstall, is this year's most nominated lady with three; British Female Solo Artist, British Breakthrough Act and British Live Act. Speaking about her nominations KT, who will also be performing at the Awards show, said: "I can go to my grave happy saying I was in the same category as Kate Bush!"


    Brit veteran Robbie Williams is nominated once again in the category of British Male Solo Artist alongside Will Young James Blunt, Antony and the Johnsons and Ian Brown. Gorillaz will compete for Best British Album alongside Kate Bush and Coldplpay and for Best British Group where they are up against the likes of Franz Ferdinand and Kaiser Chiefs.


    But as the Kaiser Chief's Ricky Wilson said, "Nominations are great, but it's winning that counts!" We'll have to wait until the awards show itself on February 15th to find out who will be taking home those all important statuettes…


    The show will be hosted by Chris Evans and broadcast on ITV on February 16th. Acts confirmed to perform include Coldplay as well as newcomers Kaiser Chiefs, KT Tunstall and James Blunt who will be joined by two of America’s biggest acts, Kanye West and Kelly Clarkson.2006 Brits Nominees
