One Direction will not only perform at the BRIT Awards 2013, but they could also be taking home a shiny new statue for their mantelpieces.
Nick Grimshaw announced at a star-studded bash at The Savoy last night that One Direction are among the nominees in the category for Best British Group. They’re going up against Mumford and Sons, The xx, Muse and Alt-J.
Emeli Sande received the most nominations. She was recognised in a whopping FOUR categories, including Best British Female, Best British Album and Best British Single.
The star will perform at the ceremony at London’s O2 Arena on 20th February alongside One Direction and Robbie Williams.
We were lucky enough to attend the nominations party last night and see an amazing performance with the Critics’ Choice winner Tom Odell. You can watch it here shortly.
