Harry Styles and Wait Leg lead the 2023 Brit Awards race as the most nominated artists with four nods.

Artist of the Year will see Styles go head-to-head with Central Sea, Stormzy, Fred Egan and George Ezra. His chart-topping 2022 record “Harry’s House” is up against 1975’s “Being Funny in a Foreign Language,” Wet Leg’s “Wet Leg,” Stormzy’s “This Is What I Mean” and Fred Again’s “Real Life” for album of the year. For there is 3.”

Wait Leg is also set to perform at the Feb. 11 event along with Sam Smith and Kim Petrus, whose pop radio leader “Unholy” is up for Song of the Year and Pop/R&B Act — one of many new categories added in 2022. The same year, the show dropped its gendered categories (Best British Male and Best Female awards) as part of its revamp and introduced public voting for the first time. That method will be applied again at the 2023 awards in four categories: Alternative/Rock Act, Dance Act, Hip-Hop/Grime/Rap Act and Pop/R&B Act.

The omission of gender-based categories has sparked new criticism, however, as women are left behind in this year’s nominations — in the top category, artist of the year, there are no women among the five nominees, and only three female artists receive more than one nomination each.

The 2023 Brit Awards will be broadcast live on ITV1 and ITVX With host Mo Gilligan returning from London’s O2 Arena on February 11, who commented in a statement: “Hosting the British last year was one of the most extraordinary moments of my life. I’m so honored to know the incredible team behind music’s biggest night and proud to bring our amazing audiences even closer to their favorite artists. I promise you, we’re going to be even bigger this year… let’s go!”
