Ellie Goulding, Jessie J & Birdy Work The BRIT Nominations Red Carpet: 9 Pics

Earlier today (January 9) the nominations for the 2014 BRIT Awards were announced in London and the who’s who of the British recording industry — well, apart from Adele and One Direction — turned up to find out who is in the running this year at a swanky rep carpet event.

Ellie Goulding, who nabbed two nominations, rocked a black dress as did Best British Female Solo Artist nominee Jessie J. Also in attendance were divas Birdy and Pixie Lott as well as dapper fellas Sam Smith, Jake Bugg, Naughty Boy and Tom Odell. See the pics up top.
