Spotlight on Adele with stack of nods at 2016 Brits

Washington D.C. : Adele seems all set to grab the spotlight this year after being nominated for four trophies at the Brit Awards.

Throwing up a few unexpected curveballs, alongside the expected stack of nominations for the 25-year-old ‘ Skyfall’ singer, there is also recognition for Amy Winehouse, who died in 2011, and Eagles of Death Metal, whose Paris concert was targeted by terrorists in November 2015, reports the Guardian.

Adele’s multi-million-selling album 25 is up for best British album, while she has also been shortlisted for best British female, single and video.

Pop-electronica band Years and Years and singer-songwriter James Bay have also been nominated for four awards each.

James Bay is up for British breakthrough act and ‘British Male Solo Artist’ and his single ‘Hold Back the River’ is up for British Single. His album, ‘Chaos and the Calm’ is up against Adele’s in the album category. (ANI)
