Brits Up Next

THE BRITS ARE COMING: The U.K.’s Brit Awards, the equivalent to our Grammys, take place tomorrow night (2/15), with hip-hop star Tinie Tempah sporting a field-leading total of four nominations for the ceremony at London’s O2 Arena. Tempah leads singer-songwriter Plan B, folk rock act Mumford & Sons and London's The xx, who each earned three nominations. Tempah was nominated for British male solo artist, British breakthrough act, British single for "Pass Out" and the Mastercard British album of the year for Disc-Overy, which comes out in the U.S. May 3 on Capitol Records. In the latter category, he is up against Mumford & Sons ("Sigh No More"), Plan B ("The Defamation of Strickland Banks"), Take That ("Progress") and The xx ("XX"). Among those with two nominations apiece are Arcade Fire, Kings of Leon, Ellie Goulding, Cheryl Cole, Katy Perry, Cee Lo Green and Eminem. Jessie J has already been announced as the winner of the Critics' Choice award for up-and-coming talent, and comedian James Corden will host this year's ceremony. Among the performers on the night are Rihanna and Take That. (2/14p)
