Jess Glynne: I want Amy to be a posthumous winner

Jess Glynne wants Amy Winehouse to win British Female Solo Artist at the BRIT Awards 2016.

The singer, who tragically died in 2011 aged 27, received a posthumous nomination in the category as the nominations were announced on Thursday night (14.01.16).

Jess is also up for the award, but would much rather it be given to Amy than to her.

Speaking at the announcement of the nominations The BRITs Are Coming, Jess said: "I think Amy should win."

Jess frequently works alongside The Amy Winehouse Foundation, an organisation for which she is an ambassador.

Despite Jess' comments, she also revealed she was honoured to have been recognised in not one but three categories - including British Breakthrough Act and British Single.

She continued: "It's very surreal, it's a show that I've watched for as long as I can remember and now I'm nominated. It's amazing!"

Jess has had an incredibly successful year, going from a little known singer to a household name thanks to her singles such as 'Hold My Hand' and 'Don't Be So Hard on Yourself'.

Talking about the past 12 months, Jess said: "It feels so strange to have so many number ones, it feels surreal, like a dream."
