The 25-year-old hitmaker, who won the BRITs Critics’ Choice Award in last year (2012), spoke of her joy at being recognised once more at the BRITS, saying:
“It’s a really good feeling. It feels great, a bit scary, because you never know, you might not win anything.
“It feels great to have this acknowledgement and recognition. And to come back here after winning the Critics’ Choice and to be nominated is really, really cool.”
At the BRIT Award nominations were announced at London’s Savoy Hotel today (10th January, 2013), where Sande also presented Tom Odell with the 2013 Critics’ Choice Award and said how much winning the award meant to her last year.
“This time last year, I was excited but very nervous. I wish now I had just enjoyed it.
“He’s such a wonderful musician and it’s great to pass it on to him.”
