Ed Sheeran and Lewis Capaldi lead the nominations for the Global Awards 2020 with Very.co.uk.

The awards bring together all Global’s radio stations including Capital, Heart, Classic FM, Smooth, Radio X, Capital XTRA, Gold and LBC, to celebrate the biggest stars of music, news and entertainment across a wide range of genres. The categories reflect the music, programmes, podcasts and news aired on Global’s radio stations and the Global Player app.

The pair go head to head in four categories, Best Male, Best British Act, Best Mass Appeal Artist and Best Song of 2019.
