If the Grammys aren’t enough to curb your international-music appetite, the Brit Awards are here to save the day by releasing their well-stacked 2017 nomination list. Girl group Little Mix and Mercury Prize–winning grime artist Skepta lead the 2017 class with three noms apiece, while David Bowie, the 1975, Coldplay, and Zayn each scored multiple noms of their own. The battle for International Female Solo Artist may prove to be the most intriguing, though, with sisters Beyoncé and Solange facing off against the likes of Rihanna and Sia for the top honor. The entire list of nominees can be viewed below, and you can watch the ceremony live when it airs on February 22.
