The BRITs come around to Paloma

Last year, Paloma Faith was surprised when her hit songs and album in 2009 failed to garner her a nomination at the BRITS. However, it seems that this year, the panel has come around.

The 'New York' singer figured that she'd missed out on the awards this year as she had no album release in 2010, but nevertheless Paloma was presently shocked when she was nominated for the BRITs British Female.

The other nominations in the category include Rumer 31, Laura Marling, 20, Ellie Goulding, 24, and Cheryl Cole, 27.

Faith, 25, said: “I am so excited and totally flabbergasted. I was sad last year because I didn’t get nominated but I eventually got over it.

“So I was totally unprepared and then over the moon when I heard I’d been nominated this year.

“All the other women I’m up against are amazing and I am very proud to be sitting alongside Rumer and Laura Marling because I think they’re both very creative.

“Saying that, I’d be very surprised if either of them won.”

Although honoured by the nod, Faith doesn't think she has a chance next to Cheryl Cole. "She’s done so well, she’s been everywhere, she’s the nations sweetheart. I’d be shocked if she didn’t take it home.”
