Because you clearly didn’t get enough award show overload this week with the People’s Choice Awards being held last night, Oscar nominees announced this morning and the Golden Globes just around the corner, the lucky artists up for 2013 BRIT Awards were announced today. Many artists who won big at the UK’s equivalent of the Grammys have found themselves nominated again this year, including Emeli Sande, the recipient of the 2012 Critics’ Choice award.

Sande is up for the most BRITs (four, including British Album Of The Year), while One Direction, winners of British Single last year, are up for British Group, and Adele, last year’s Album Of The Year and British Female Solo Artist winner, is nominated for British Single (for “Skyfall”) this time around.
