No ha habido sorpresas llamativas en las nominaciones de los Britt. la industria británica tiene buen gusto, compensa a artistas de distintas compañías, las pocas que quedan, con un reparto equitativo . Y… se acabó.

Es un poco indecente que catalogen a Jay Z/Kanye West como grupo internacional, pero supongo que era pagar el cupo como lo importante.

tiene cuatro nominaciones. No puede tener más y va a ganar las cuatro. Adele salió la primera vez con el premio de la elección de los críticos hace ya cuatro años. Este año, los críticos han sido muy “tercer mundo” y han elegido a Emeli Sandé, Maverick Sabre y Michael Kiwanuka.
