Yungblud’s mother undeniably had the best reaction to learning he’d received a nomination at this year’s Brit Awards.
The singer – real name Dominic Harrison – has received a nod for male solo artist this year going up against AJ Tracey, Joel Corry, Headie One and J Hus.
His beloved mum Samantha did the honours of delivering the news to him personally and her reaction was priceless.
Yungblud shared a video of their FaceTime call in which she screams with her voice quivering: ‘Oh my God, Dom! You’ve got a Brit Award nomination!’
The singer is literally jaw-dropped, drops his camera and covers his mouth with his hands in pure shock.
Samantha then flips the camera to read out a card which says: ‘Dear Yungblud, the Brits are coming and we’re delighted to say you’ve been nominated for male solo artist.’
Yungblud then screams and shakes the camera before admitting: ‘I’m buzzing.’
His equally excited mum says: ‘Can you imagine that? You’ve got confetti and everything.’
‘I love that man,’ the musician added as his mum and dad Justin snapped a happy selfie.
Jessie Ware snapped a grinning selfie with her letter from the Brits and tweeted: ‘Female Solo Artist and MasterCard Album Of The Year nom at @BRITs! Come on!!! Thank you to everyone who voted for me. Means a lot x.’
Dua Lipa has proved to be queen of the nominations list after receiving three nods, including British single for Physical and the coveted Mastercard album for her disco-fest Future Nostalgia.
‘3 NOMS!!!!! Thank you @BRITs can’t wait to see you there!!!!!!’ she tweeted reacting to the incredible news.
Foo Fighters have been nominated for international group and tweeted: ‘If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times….we wouldn’t be the band that we are today if it weren’t for the UK.
‘You’ve always been our second home, so it’s a great honor to be nominated this year. Can’t wait to put the “international” back into our group!!!’
The Brit Awards 2021 will be taking place on May 11 at London’s O2 Arena.
