The alternative Brit Award nomination: Anais Mitchell
This year's Brit Award nominations are announced in London on Thursday.
The Brits honour the year's biggest and best stars, and all artists must have had a top 40 single or album in the UK to be eligible.
But Vermont folk singer Anais Mitchell missed out on a nomination although she attracted glowing reviews for her fourth album Young Man In America.
She says the record was inspired by "American manhood, British ballads and my father".
