Girls Rule But Susan Boyle Snubbed With The 2010 Brit Award Nominations

La Roux Girls Rule But Susan Boyle Snubbed With The 2010 Brit Award NominationsLady Gaga won’t be getting too much necessary R&R anytime soon. Along with current U.K. chart darlings Lily Allen, Pixie Lott and Florence And The Machine (who has the #1 album this week in Ol’ Blighty), Polaroid’s new creative advisor picked up three Brit Awards nominations today. Gaga is also scheduled to perform at the awards show gig on February 16.

Looks like holding court with the Queen has its perks. Catch the full list of this year’s Brits nominees after the jump.

With Florence and Pixie also joining La Roux in the British Breakthrough Act category, and Gaga and Taylor Swift getting nods for International Breakthrough Act, it seems like girl power is the order of this years Brits. That said, Susan Boyle, who had the best-selling album of 2009 in the U.K., is nowhere to be found in the roundup.

The Daily Mail asserts that Boyle being snubbed is “is a veiled attack on [Simon] Cowell, who guided the 48-year-old Scottish spinster from Britain’s Got Talent to her astonishing success.”

The rug kind of gets yanked out from under that argument, however, when you figure that such X Factor alumni as JLS, Alexandra Burke, Leona Lewis and this year’s winner, Joe McElderry, all snagged nominations. Maybe Brits voters were just cheesed off that 99% of Boyle’s I Dreamed A Dream is covers.

At any rate, below are the nominees for the 2010 Brit Awards, which were announced at London’s O2 Arena this evening.
