The nominees for the 2020 BRIT Awards have been announced.

Sam Smith, Tyler the Creator and Miley Cyrus are among the LGBTQ artists who have scooped nods at the show, which celebrates the best in British music. It will once again take place at London’s 02 Arena on 18 February.

Dancing with a Stranger, Sam Smith and Normani’s critically-acclaimed R&B collaboration, has been nominated for Song of the Year alongside hits from Stormzy, Mark Ronson, Ed Sheeran, AJ Tracey, Mabel, Lewis Capaldi, Tom Walker and Dave.

Although she has been slaying the world of pop since 2013, Charli XCX has only just received her first ever nomination in the category of Female Solo Artist, where she will compete against Mabel, Freya Ridings, FKA Twigs and Mahalia.

International Female is stacked with gay fan-favourites such as Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Camila Cabello, Lana Del Rey and Lizzo, while Tyler the Creator faces off against Burna Boy, Dermot Kennedy and Post Malone for International Male.
