BRIT award nominations announced, Susan Boyle snubbed
Familiar names Lady GaGa, Leona Lewis and Lily Allen crop up
LONDON (AP) — Women are dominating the nominations for Britain's leading music awards — the Brits — but Internet sensation Susan Boyle was snubbed on the shortlist.
Other British contenders include boy band JLS, Leona Lewis, Bat for Lashes, Paolo Nuttini and Dizzee Rascal.
Robbie Williams will receive an award for outstanding contribution to music at the Feb. 16 ceremony in London.
The awards are the British equivalent of the Grammys. Most winners are selected by a vote of over 1,000 industry members.
