Little Mix have gone on to become one of the most successful groups of all time since winning The X Factor in 2011.

Their 2012 debut album DNA made them the first girl group to enter the US top 5 with a debut album since the Pussycat Dolls.

They also broke the record – previously set by Spice Girls – for highest debut position in the US market for a British girl group.

The group have gone on to have four number ones in the UK and have sold over 45 million records worldwide.

In 2017 they won Shout Out to My Ex at the Brit Awards and have racked up 2 MTV Europe Music Awards, two Teen Choise Awards as well as two Glamour Awards.

  • The 1975 – 5/2

The 1975 have become a hit across both sides of the pond.

Their second album, I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it, reached number one in both the UK and US.

And their third and fourth studio albums also achieved critical acclaim as well scoring them a third number one in the UK.

Among their many awards they've racked up over the years, they won Best British Group at the Brits in 2017 and were also nominated for British Album of the Year that same year.

The Sheffield-grown band's debut album became the fastest-selling of all time by a band in UK history.

And the band have gone on to release five further subsequent albums.

Despite already having won seven Brit Awards, they won't be attending this year's ceremony. 

The lads will be flying out to Perth three days before their Australian tour kicks off on February 23.

They also avoided  the ceremony in 2006 when they nabbed Best Breakthrough — and again in 2007, despite scooping the double for Best Group and Best Album.

The band have also won three Grammys as well as a Mercury Prize to name a few.

  • Years and Years – 6/1

The trio’s first album, Communion, was the fastest-selling debut album in the year — which also saw them named BBC Sound of 2015, propelling them to fame.

Alexander — who with bandmates Mikey Goldsworthy and Emre Turkmen make Years & Years — says new album Palo Santo is “a world where all the rules regarding gender and sexuality are not there”.

The group have previously been nominated for four Brit Awards – all in 2016.

  • Gorillaz – 10/1

The Gorillaz were formed in 1998 by the Blur frontman and acclaimed solo artist Damon Albarn, and graphic artist Jamie Hewlett.

Gorillaz' eponymous first album was a global hit, climbing to number six in the UK charts and shifting eight million copies worldwide.

Their next effort, 2005's Demon Days, did even better, taking the number one spot in the UK and outselling their debut both at home and in America.

That record featured the Grammy Award-winning single Feel Good Inc, Dirty Harry and DARE – which gave them their first, and to this date only UK number one single.

The duo's four albums to date – with Plastic Beach released in 2010 and The Fall 2011 – have featured a host of star turns from guest artists.

Who are the Brit Awards 2019 nominees?

The nominations were unveiled on January 12 but the winners will be revealed TONIGHT (February 20, 2019).

Scooping the most nominations this year were Dua Lipa, Anne-Marie and Jess Glynne who all received four nods respectively.

While George Ezra and Jorja Smith were both nominated three times.

Not following far behind where The 1975, Calvin Harris, Clean Bandit, Dan Caplen, Demi Lovato, Florence and the Machine, Little Mix, Macklemore, Rita Ora, Rudimental and Tom Walker – who all had two nominations each.
