Some of the artist who received nominations took to social media to express themselves, “Thank you to the gentle and wise souls at the BRIT Awards for recognizing our clear and unquestionable international appeal,” RTJ say, “we only pray that you can avoid the shame and embarrassment that your failure to award us this prize would bring us all and the strain it may place on the relationship between our great nations.”
“Women have always made great music and wonderful albums, but this is the first time in the entire BRITs history that we have dominated the best album category. The time is now – albeit long overdue – to start respecting and appreciating the vital role women, and their music, play in the British music industry.” Jessie Ware who is up for album of the year wrote.
