The upcoming 2016 Brit Awards are set to take place on Wednesday, February. 25, 2016, live from London’s O2 arena on ITV. But before the big show, check out this year’s list of nominees.

Adele, James Bay and Years & Years lead nominations with four, followed by Calvin Harris and Jess Glynne with three. Additionally, Little Mix earned their first ever nomination for Best Single and Best Video.

However, one of the biggest talking points is Amy Winehouse’s nomination for Best Female Solo Artist, which comes five years after her untimely death. Winehouse earned the nomination after the soundtrack to the Amy biopic peaked at number 19 on the UK charts. Acts confirmed to perform on the night include Adele, Justin Bieber, The Weeknd and Coldplay.
