The Brit Awards category for Best British Single has been extended to include nominations by The Streets, Natasha Bedingfield, Keane, George Michael and the Sugababes after organisers miscalculated the number of weeks in 2004.
The previous list only consisted of five entries from Band Aid 20, Jamelia, LMC Vs U2, Shapeshifters and Will Young.
In a statement made yesterday (January 20th), a spokesman explained: "It has been brought to organisers' attention that the 2004 chart year comprised 53 weeks rather than 52. "To avoid any ambiguity, and in the interest of accuracy and fair play, the Brits committee has decided to expand the nominations list to ten. "A happy side-effect of this decision is that the British Single nominations now look more exciting than ever."
The full list of nominees for Best British Single now reads as follows:
Band Aid 20 "Do They Know It's Christmas" Jamelia "Thank You" LMC Vs U2 "Take Me to the Clouds Above" Shapeshifters "Lola's Theme" Will Young "Your Game" The Streets "Dry Your Eyes" Natasha Bedingfield "These Words" George Michael "Amazing" Keane "Everybody's Changing" Sugababes "In The Middle"
The Brits ceremony will take place on February 9th at Earl's Court.
