Nominations for the 2017 Brit Awards were announced via a live show last weekend, beginning the countdown to the actual show taking place on Feb. 22. Michael Bublé was scheduled to host the show; however, he cancelled upon hearing his son’s tragic cancer diagnosis. Bublé will understandably take some family time, but the show will go on. As of now, he has not officially been replaced.

In terms of nominations, Little Mix (for British Group, British Single, and British Artist Video of the Year), Rihanna (for International Female Solo Artist, British Single, and British Artist Video Of The Year), and Skepta (for British Male Solo Artist, British Breakthrough Act, and Mastercard British Album Of The Year) are tied at three this year. It’s sure to be another fun-filled, musical and very British night!
