Little Mix AND Zayn?! So The BRIT Awards Might Be A Total Sh*tstorm This Year

Today's announcement could mean some serious awks come awards night.

Little Mix

One of the biggest nights in pop is nearly upon, with this year’s BRIT Awards looming on February 22nd, and judging by today’s nomination announcements it could be a bit of an awkward affair.

Why so? Well, Zayn will be going head to head against his ex girlfriend Perrie Edwards and her Little Mix bandmates to scoop not one, but two of the most covetable gongs of the night.

Making the announcement, the people behind the BRITs revealed that Zayn is nominated for Best British Single for his hit Pillowtalk, while Little Mix are in the running for the same award for Shout Out To My Ex, the very song that’s said to reference Perrie and Zayn’s messy split.

Both artists are also pitted against each other for Best British Artist Video, Zayn again for Pillowtalk and Little Mix for their track Hair.

There can only be one winner of course, and if either Zayn or the girls scoop one in the two categories there’s likely to be a sore face or two on the night.

The only thing that could potentially make it even more uncomfortable? If Zayn brings along his girlfried Gigi. Yeesh.
