And he's no doubt hoping to add the awards for Best British Artist Video of the Year and British Single of the Year to the display, as he admitted that he's pretty chuffed to be nominated so early into his solo career.

The "New Rules" singer will compete against Jessie Ware, Kate Tempest, Laura Marling and Paloma Faith for British Female Solo Artist, and is also celebrating nominations for British Single, British Breakthrough Act, British Artist Video and British Album of the Year.

The former One Direction star is nominated for best single and best artist video for Strip That Down, which features rapper Quavo.

J Hus and Rag'n'Bone man have three nods each, while Stormzy, Loyle Carner, Little Mix and Clean Bandit have two.

He also heralded Ed Sheeran, who collected four nominations following the release of his record-breaking third album, Divide, and referenced the wider global success of British music.

Taylor Swift, Pink, Lorde, Alicia Keys and Björk were all nominated for best worldwide female, with Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Childish Gambino (the stage name for Donald Glover), Beck and DJ Khaled nominated for best global male.

In the worldwide categories, Bjork, Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino, Drake, LCD Soundsystem, HAIM, Arcade Fire, Alice Wolf, The Killers, and Alicia Keys have been nominated.

Diddy and Blige obviously have tons of history together, in face he even produced her debut album. Blige's star is the 2,626th star on the Walk of Fame since its completion in 1961.

The nominees were announced during a special live ITV show "The BRITs Are Coming", hosted by Emma Willis.

He said: "It's fantastic". We all needed a break, it got a bit insane at one point.

'There is always time for us to come back, ' Liam assured. "I don't think our kid's got it in him anymore anyway, it seems to me like he's playing to the snobs and the world and the toffs".

The Brit Awards were a year ago dominated by David Bowie, who won two posthumous awards for best solo artist and best album for "Blackstar".

Noel hit number one with his latest High Flying Birds album Who Built the Moon? in November, but he sold less units than Liam during his first week, with just 78,000.

The Brit Awards will take place on February 21 at London's O2 Arena.
