The singer has sold over 17 million copies of her third album, 25, and is currently on a sold out global tour.

The awards are highly respected because they are voted for by songwriters and composers.

Ed Sheeran and Rudimental’s Bloodstream has been nominated in the best song musically and lyrically category, alongside Jamie Lawson and Wolf Alice.
