BRIT Awards 2015, from the good to the WTF

If I see myself in the situation of need to give an answer to the question 'And how is it?' asked in relation to the BRIT Awards nomination list published last Wednesday 15 January, that answer would probably be around terms like democratic, open and in some cases even solidary. There’s no other way to explain some names and titles in the list. Even though it includes great pieces and artists in real hightimes as Paolo Nutini or Damon Albarn, this is not a year to be proud of this award, as One Direction also found a place in the list. We can guess there was not much room for choice. 

Anyway, the ceremony taking place next February 25th at O2 in London will say who is the best in each category from the following list... or hope so.
