Adele will have to wait nearly a year for the 2023 Grammy nominations, which will include her highly anticipated fourth album, 30, is expected to be a major force.

This year marks the first time the British have combined separate male and female categories in both Artist of the Year and International Artist. So how did it shake out? Females took two out of five artist of the year spots (Adele and Little Simz), but four out of five international artist spots (Billie Eilish, Doja Cat, Olivia Rodrigo and Taylor Swift). Eilish has won a Brit Award each for the past two years as a female international artist. Swift won a worldwide icon award last year.

In addition, the Brits report that more female artists have been nominated for Brit Awards this year than in any last year in the past decade.

Griff has been nominated for best new artist, a year after winning the British rising star. Holly Humberstone has already been announced as this year’s winner of this year’s rising star.

As the US music industry adjusts to the 11th hour-long expansion of the Grammys from eight to 10 nominees in each of the Big Four categories – album, record and song of the year plus best new artist – the British (sip) 15 nominees in each of the two song categories — MasterCard Song of the Year and International Song of the Year.

Several of this year’s UK nominees have also been nominated in similar categories for Grammys. Eilish’s “Happier Than Ever”, Doja Cat with SZA’s “Kiss Me More” and Lil Nas X’s “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)”, all of which are Grammy-nominated for both record and song of the year, compete for international number of the year with the British. So is Rodrigo’s “Good 4 U.” Rodrigo is also nominated for record and song of the year at the Grammys, but with another hit, “Driver’s License.”

ABBA, who received their first Grammy nomination last month, got a British nod for international group, alongside BTS, Måneskin, Silk Sonic and The War on Drugs. Elton John receives his first Brit nomination in 20 years, in song of the year, for “Cold Heart (Pnau Mix)”, his successful collaboration with Dua Lipa.

Sam Fender, who won the rising star two years ago, has been nominated for three Britons, as are West London rapper Central Cee and French DJ/producer David Guetta.

The winners of the four new genre categories – rock/alternative act, hip-hop/grime/rap act, dance act, pop/R&B act – will be determined by public vote via TikTok, which opens January 21.

The British are coming special appearances by Anne-Marie, Glass Animals, Mimi Webb and Joel Corry & Gracey. The special was presented by Clara Amfo and Maya Jama.

British comedian Mo Gilligan will present the Brit Awards, presented by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI).
