BRIT Awards 2008 nominations

The Brit Awards nominations was announced last night. First I heard of it was today after reading Richard's blog. There has been virtually no coverage by the majority of the press. For example while glancing through today's free METRO paper I found no mention of the nominations, not even in the entertainment section. For some reason the dailies are hung-up over a dead princess and what her mother supposedly said to her. Bizarre, but maybe it is because no one takes the Brit Awards seriously any longer, especially when voting is none-democratic and are usually based on commercial rather than critical success.

Here are the list of nominees and like Richard I will be guessing who will win as well as who I think deserves to win. If there are none it means I know nought of all five nominated in their respective group. I don't listen to music as often as I used to, or would have liked to. :(
