The Classic BRIT Awards 2018 announces nominations for this year, with a new category and recognition for a phenomenally diverse range of incredible artists. 101 year old Dame Vera Lynn leads the accolades with two nominations to add to her Lifetime Achievement Award.

There are multiple nominations for actress and musical theatre star Sheridan Smith after a stunning year, as well as Michael Ball and Alfie Boe, who sold over a million copies of their two blockbuster albums ‘Together’ and ‘Together Again’.

A new generation of Classic musicians is recognised as Tina Guo, Sheku Kanneh-Mason, Beatrice Rana, Ayoub Sisters and Tokio Myers all receive nominations. 

Classic BRIT Awards co-host Alexander Armstrong also receives two nominations and The Greatest Showman, one of the biggest albums on the planet right now, receives recognition in the brand new ‘Soundtrack Of the Year’ category.

Hans Zimmer, perhaps the Classic BRIT Awards’ most-listened to nominee, garners 3 nominations in the new ‘Soundtrack Of The Year’ category for his work on BBC series ‘Blue Planet II’ (alongside Jacob Shea and David Fleming), and blockbuster films ‘Blade Runner 2049’ (alongside Benjamin Wallfisch) and the extraordinary ‘Dunkirk’. The score received praise for its use of the 'Shepard Tone' that Zimmer describes as a 'musical trick' used to create ever-increasing intensity.
