Rita Ora & Wiley Compete for Best International Act at BET Awards 2013

Rita Ora & Wiley (yes, UK Wiley) joins the likes of Emeli Sande, Labrinth, Estelle and Marsha Ambrosius in the Best International Act Category for the BET Awards.

 

In full excitement Rita Ora tweets: ‘Just heard I’ve been nominated for Best International Act at the @BETAwards! Amazing honour!’ 

The ‘ Hot Right Now’ singer has experienced double success with her track ‘R.I.P’ topping the UK charts as well as her album ‘Ora’. The surprising shock goes to Wiley who is representing the UK homegrown scene. The legendary grime icon is also nominated too! Plus, his 2013 LP The Ascent has received a massive reception in the States. Well done Wiley, we salute you.

With the Awards airing in the States on the 30th June, excitement is already building up. With Chris Brown, Charlie Wilson, R. Kelly & Miguel gracing the stage on the night. Let’s just hope he doesn’t do those stunts to hurt somebody ;S. It’s great that the UK are seeing major success in the US. Looks like they are loving our own creativity of music eh?
