BRIT Awards 2024 | Who are the Rising Star nominees?


The BRIT Awards 2024 are around the corner, and the competition for the prestigious Rising Star award is heating up. The award, which boasts past winners like Adele, Sam Fender, and Ellie Goulding, is a significant milestone in any emerging artist’s career. For 2024, the nominees are the vibrant pop artist Caity Baser, the indie sensations The Last Dinner Party, and the unique young talent, Sekou.

Let’s hear what these rising stars have to say:

Caity Baser shares her excitement:

“When I heard that I’ve been nominated for the BRITs Rising Star award this year, I literally screamed for five minutes and chucked everything around my room!! I used to watch the awards on TV every year when I was a kid but had no idea how a kid from an estate in Southampton would ever get there. Now to be shortlisted for the Rising Star award for next year…me! Little old me… All I have to say is I am so happy and thank you so much. It’s really a dream come true!”

The Last Dinner Party on their nomination:

“We’re so honoured and thrilled to be nominated for the Rising Star award! It’s very overwhelming and exciting to be up for something as prestigious as a BRIT at this stage in our career and we’re so grateful. We’ve had an amazing year and can’t wait for all that’s to come!”

Sekou reflects on the recognition:

“Being nominated for BRITs Rising Star is absolutely crazy. I grew up in a small town and watched the BRITs every single year. The performances were always amazing – Adele, Amy, Sam Smith, Beyoncé. I remember being 10 years old when Adele sang ‘Someone Like You’ for the first time and being like… YES that’s gonna be me one day. Don’t even get me started on Beyoncé. I’m so grateful to be considered for this. For me, this feels like God telling me to continue to work harder and keep pushing. Thank you BRITsssssss!!!!”

The BRIT Awards 2024 are set to take place on March 2nd, where these rising talents will vie for the coveted title.
