LONDON  - Ed Sheeran may have been the surprise package of the BRIT Award nominations last month, bagging more than anyone else, but the show itself looks set to follow a more predictable script on Tuesday - another Adele triumph.
Sheeran, who just turned 21, was nominated in four categories - best album for “+”, single (“The A Team”), breakthrough act and male solo artist.
He is up against Adele , the world’s biggest selling singer last year and fresh from a record-equalling six Grammy awards earlier this month, in the album and song categories. Bookmaker Ladbroke’s makes the 23-year-old Londoner favourite to win the female category and the big prize on the night, best album, for “21”, which has sold more than six million copies in the United States alone.
