On Thursday, organizers revealed the nominations and plans for a special musical tribute to the late David Bowie and a live performance from Adele.
Making the Feb. 24 show at London's O2 Arena even sweeter for Adele's fans: she leads the trophy-hunting pack with four nominations.
In addition, the record-breaking singer is a hot favorite for the global success award, which is based on international sales success. This means Adele could walk away with five awards – something that's never before been achieved.
Joining Adele with four nominations is "Hold Back The River" singer James Bay and up-and-coming pop trio Years & Years.
Calvin Harris and rising star Jess Glynne are both nominated for three awards, while Coldplay, One Direction and Ed Sheeran all have two.
Should Coldplay win both of their categories, Chris Martin's band will become the most successful act in Brit history in the best album and best British group categories.
In a touching development, Eagles of Death Metal are nominated for best international group. The nod news comes just two months after the terrorist attacks in Paris.
