The awards will be handed out tonight (Feb. 20) in London.

Home-grown talents Dua Lipa, Anne-Marie and George Ezra lead nominations for the U.K. music industry’s Brit Awards , set to be handed out at a ceremony featuring performances by The Greatest Showman star Hugh Jackman and DJ Calvin Harris on Wednesday night (Feb. 20) in London.   

Lipa, whose star status was cemented with two Grammy awards earlier this month, is up for four trophies, including single of the year for both “One Kiss” and “IDGAF.” Karate black belt and singer Anne-Marie also has four nods, including best British female solo artist, while Ezra has three.    

Women dominate the nominations, after past criticism that the Brits have failed to reflect the diversity of British music.  

Pink is due to receive an award for outstanding contribution to music during Wednesday’s (Feb. 20) ceremony at London’s O2 Arena, hosted by comedian Jack Whitehall.
