Pixie Lott's nomination surprise

Pixie Lott didn't think she was going to get any nominations for this year's BRIT awards - but was surprised when she found out she is up for three gongs.

Pixie Lott thought she had missed out on any BRIT award nominations.

The 'Mama Do' singer performed at the announcement of this year's nominations last month, and was initially left disappointed when she thought she had missed out on all the categories.

She explained: "Somebody asked me on the red carpet and I said, 'oh, are the nominations out?' and I hadn't heard anything, so I thought 'that's that then'.

"Then later I was in my dressing room and I heard my name read out. Three! It was amazing."

Pixie, 19, is nominated in the British Female Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act categories, and is also up in the British Single section, for her debut 'Mama Do'.

Pixie said she was glad she was getting recognised after a fantastic year in the music industry in 2009, during which she scored two number one singles with her debut and follow up single 'Girls and Boys'

Speaking on Britain's Radio 1, Pixie said: "That's the thing -it feels so good that people are acknowledging it and recognising it and all the hard work has paid off.

"This year has been the most amazing year so far, all the fans have been absolutely amazing."

Pixie also said she's hoping to meet Jay-Z, Beyonce and Lady Gaga at the BRIT awards, as well as going out celebrating after the ceremony on February 16 - especially if she wins.

She added: "I guess it depends on the next day, they probably have me doing something, but I want to go to the afterparty."
