The full list of nominations for the 2022 BandLab NME Awards has been revealed – celebrating the best in pop culture across the worlds of music, film, TV, games and beyond over the past year.

The craziest musical night returns to London’s O2 Academy Brixton on Wednesday 2 March to celebrate the best in music and entertainment from around the world. Tickets for the event are on sale now and available here.

We previously announced that the evening will be co-hosted by comedian, actress and writer Daisy May Cooper and grime pioneer and radio host Lady Leshurr, alongside huge live performances from Sam Fender, Griff, Rina Sawayama and the recently revealed BERWYN and Chvrches with special guest Robert Smith of The Cure. Halsey will also be present at the evening to win this year’s innovation award.

Now we can reveal the full list of nominees for the 2022 BandLab NME Awards – with Sam Fender, Little Simz, Wet Leg, Wolf Alice, Billie Eilish, Rina Sawayama and CHVRCHES among those leading the nominations with multiple nods each, while the likes of Lana Del Rey, Self Esteem, Ghetts, BTS, Olivia Rodrigo, Lorde, Bring Me The Horizon, IDLES and Megan The Stallion are ready for the biggest gongs of the night.

Meanwhile, today also sees the announcement that the leader of Bleachers and Fun. Band member, singer, songwriter and producer Jack Antonoff will receive the Songwriter Award at this year’s event – following in the footsteps of 2020 Songwriter of the Decade winner Robyn .

After a landmark year, which saw Antonoff release the acclaimed third Bleachers album “Take The Sadness Out Of Saturday Night” and work with artists like Taylor Swift, Bruce Springsteen, Lorde, Lana Del Rey, Clairo and more, NME is delighted to honor Jack with the award for his outstanding contributions to music over the past two decades. Previous recipients of this award are Elton John and Bob Dylan. The bleachers are also nominated for Best Live Act.

“Looking at the company of artists who have received this award, I’m absolutely touched,” said Jack. “This one is for anyone who writes and knows the sacred place it came from. If you know it, it’s a place where you live. It means the world to me.

He added: “Hearing that the Bleachers are also shortlisted for Best Live Act…well, that’s the crap. We play every show like the last night on earth. So this one means a lot to be recognized for that. .

You can have your say too – head here to vote for who you think should be crowned this year Hero of the year and Villain of the year.
