In what looks set to be a surprising Grammy Awards in 2014, just a handful of British stars have received nominations
British music talent David Bowie, James Blake and Ed Sheeran have all received Grammy nominations.
Bowie won a Best Rock Album nod for The Next Day, his surprise first release in a decade in March, triggering ecstasy among older fans and arguably showing some younger stars how to do it.
James Blake, who won the Mercury Music Prize in September over Bowie for his album Overgrown, is nominated in the Best New Artist category alongside fellow Brit Ed Sheeran.
