Brit Awards 2017

Little Mix are up for best British group, going up against Radiohead, The 1975, Bastille and Biffy Clyro.

Rock legend Bowie has been a Brit winner in the past, taking the best male category in 1984 and receiving an “outstanding contribution” award in 1996.

At the 2016 ceremony, following Bowie’s death in January that year, actor Gary Oldman accepted a Brits Icon Award on the singer’s behalf, and Lorde performed a heartfelt rendition of Life On Mars?
