George The Poet continued, saying he "feels privileged to have been shortlisted" and that he'd "always dreamed of reaching people", with Years & Years finally adding: "Having grown up watching the BRITs we're unbelievably honoured and to be honest quite overwhelmed to be included in the Critics’ Choice Award. We're so grateful to be making music and having this sort of recognition is crazy and ridiculous and nuts in a really good way. Thanks BRITs!“
