In January we opened the Brits voting, and by 'the Brits voting' we mean we allowed you to vote for your favourite short­l­is­ted acts and releases in each of the Brits cat­egor­ies.

(This is sig­ni­fic­ant because Actual People aren't allowed to vote in the 'major' Brits cat­egor­ies — just the ones the organ­isers think aren't important, and obviously those cat­egor­ies usually end up boiling down to which act has the most engaged fanbase in social media.)

Anyway here's how you voted.

SPOILER: It's bad news for 'Father John Misty'.

  • British Female Solo Artist: Adele
  • British Male Solo Artist: Calvin Harris
  • British Group: Years & Years
  • British Breakthrough Act: Years & Years
  • British Album Of The Year: Florence + The Machine — 'How Big How Blue How Beautiful'
  • British Producer Of The Year: Mark Ronson
  • British Single: Little Mix — 'Black Magic'
  • British Artist Video Of The Year: Years & Years — 'King'
  • International Solo Male Artist: Drake
  • International Female Solo Artist: Lana Del Rey
  • International Group: Major Lazer

So there you go. Democracy in action.
