Sam Smith leads the Brit Awards 2015 Nominees

This year's Brit Awards shortlist was announced at a ceremony in London, which will be screened at 22:40 GMT on ITV tonight. Leading the pack is Sam Smith  with five nominations followed by Ed Sheeran and George Ezra who both have four nominations. Rock duo Royal Blood has received three nominations. Jessie Ware, FKA Twigs and Clean Bandit, who played at the event, all walked away with nominations; whilst fellow performer James Bay, has already won the Critics' Choice award for emerging artists. I first saw James Bay online when he played "When we were on Fire" Live on the Runway at London Fashion Week SS 2015 last September at the Burberry Prorsum Show.

Mark Ronson - Uptown Funk ft. Bruno Mars

Fleur East wowed X-Factor's Simon Cowell and the rest of the UK fans. She performed Uptown Funk on the X-Factor Final and pipped Mark Ronson to the post forcing him to release the original version five weeks early. Ironically it was Mark Ronson's first ever UK top single. I like Fleur East's version but I love this. Which version do you prefer?
