Allen delighted by Brit nominations
Lily Allen expressed delight as she received three nominations for this year's Brit awards.
The pop singer, who has never managed to take home one of the accolades, is up against Lady GaGa, Pixie Lott and Florence And The Machine to be a big winner.
She said: "It's a huge honour for me to have my music recognised in this way by the Brits."
The event, to be screened live by ITV1 when it takes place next month, will be hosted by comic Peter Kay.
Speaking at the awards launch at London's O2, JLS star Jonathan "JB" Gill, said: "It's the 30th anniversary and we're performing at the event.
"It would be absolutely incredible to win a Brit. I used to live down the road from the Brit School, and I went past every day and wanted to go there."
