Unsurprisingly, Lewis Capaldi Is Expected To Win Big At Tonight’s Brit Awards

Hopefully, unlike the Grammys, he won't get mistaken for a seat filler.

Over the past year, Lewis Capaldi.

Lewis - who is also going to perform at tonight’s ceremony - is predicted by most critics, according to the BBC, to take home the best male award and best single, after being nominated in four categories. His main competition comes from rapper Dave - also up for four awards - whose debut album Psychodrama won last year's Mercury Prize{ =nofollow}. But they face competition from the likes of Harry Styles and Stormzy, who are also nominated for best album.

However, the awards have been criticised for a lack of diversity. Only four women have been nominated across the four categories open to both male and female artists (best group, best new artist, best song and album of the year).

Along with Capaldi, Harry Styles, Lizzo, Stormzy, Mabel and Rod Stewart - who's reuniting with the surviving members of The Faces to close the show - will perform at the O2. With any luck, Lewis will receive more recognition at the BRITs than the Grammys, where he was mistaken as a seat filler. Following the #awks experience, he tweeted, ‘A lady at the grammys has just come up and offered to take my seat because she thought I was one of the people who sits in the chairs to fill them when someone gets up to use the bathroom.’

See below for the best looks from last month’s ceremony - we wonder how tonight's outfits will compare...
