    Some changes have recently been announced for next year’s BRIT Awards.

    The 2020 BRITs will be the 40th show in the ceremony’s history, promising more music than ever before. The artists will be in control next year too – the BRIT Awards organisers are handing creative control over to the performers, “without imposing any creative limitations on their performances”.

    Hailing from London’s O2 Arena on February 18, 2020 broadcast live on ITV, the 2020 BRITs will see a “streamlined” nine trophies given out.

    Viewer vote category British Artist Video of the Year has been scrapped, British Breakthrough Act is now known as Best New Artist, and British Single has been renamed Song of the Year and will now be chosen by the 2020 Official Voting Academy instead of the public.

    The BRITs Critics’ Choice has been re-branded as the Rising Star Award with the winner taking to the stage on the night, while International Group has been removed entirely.

    The classic Lady Britannia BRIT statuette will also return after nearly a decade away, with famous designers re-imagining the trophy in recent years.

    Official Charts Company just published their Year End Chart. Since “Song of the Year” is a popularity category, it’s a good gauge for what will likely be nominated in the category.

    The U.K. Year End Top 40 as follows.

    1. SOMEONE YOU LOVED LEWIS CAPALDI
    2. OLD TOWN ROAD LIL NAS X
    3. I DON’T CARE ED SHEERAN & JUSTIN BIEBER
    4. BAD GUY BILLIE EILISH
    5. GIANT CALVIN HARRIS & RAG’N’BONE MAN
    6. SWEET BUT PSYCHO AVA MAX
    7. VOSSI BOP STORMZY
    8. DANCE MONKEY TONES & I
    9. DON’T CALL ME UP MABEL
    10. SENORITA SHAWN MENDES & CAMILA CABELLO
    11. PIECE OF YOUR HEART MEDUZA FT GOODBOYS
    12. SHOTGUN GEORGE EZRA
    13. LOCATION DAVE FT BURNA BOY
    14. HOLD ME WHILE YOU WAIT LEWIS CAPALDI
    15. SUNFLOWER POST MALONE FT SWAE LEE
    16. 7 RINGS ARIANA GRANDE
    17. WOW. POST MALONE
    18. LADBROKE GROVE AJ TRACEY
    19. JUST YOU AND I TOM WALKER
    20. SHALLOW LADY GAGA & BRADLEY COOPER
    21. BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE ED SHEERAN FT KHALID

    23. TAKE ME BACK TO LONDON ED SHEERAN FT STORMZY
    24. 3 NIGHTS DOMINIC FIKE
    25. BRUISES LEWIS CAPALDI
    26. HIGHER LOVE KYGO & WHITNEY HOUSTON
    27. GRACE LEWIS CAPALDI
    28. NOTHING BREAKS LIKE A HEART MARK RONSON FT MILEY CYRUS
    29. SUCKER JONAS BROTHERS
    30. THANK U NEXT ARIANA GRANDE

    38. RIDE IT REGARD
    39. STRIKE A POSE YOUNG T & BUGSEY FT AITCH
    40. WITHOUT ME HALSEY

    Since the BRITS only one per artist (unless it’s a feature, such as Dua last year) so only their highest / most popular track. Taking this into regard. The likely ten nominees should be

    • Lewis Capaldi – Someone You Love
    • Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber – I Don’t Care
    • Calvin Harris & Rag N Bone Man – Giant
    • Stormzy – Vossi Bop
    • Mabel – Don’t Call Me Up
    • Dave (f/ Burna Boy) – Location
    • AJ Tracey – Ladbroke Groove
    • Tom Walker – Just You and I
    • Sam Smith & Normani – Dancing with a Stranger
    • Mark Ronson (f/ Miley Cyrus) – Nothing Breaks Like a Heart
