The nominations for this years Brit Awards have been announced this evening, with Emeli Sande leading the way with four nominations.

The singer has been nominated in the British Female, British Single (twice) and British Album. Hot on her heels are Mercury Prize winning band Alt-J and Mumford & Sons – who are both up for three nominations.
