    The Brit Asia TV Music Awards returns with another incredible line-up of talented nominees for 2014.

    Held at the prestigious Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham, the Nominations Party took place on August 28, 2014.

    British Asian stars from across the country came in full force to support their peers and see who would be in with a chance to win a much-coveted Brit Asia Music award.

    The evening celebrated some of the veteran names of the British Asian and Bhangra music industry including Balbir Singh of the Bhujangy Group.

    Miss Pooja Punjabi star turned actress Miss Pooja also graced the Birmingham event in a chic lime green and aqua outfit, adding a very welcome Eastern touch to the proceedings.

    Amidst delicious canapés and flowing champagne, the nominees for the 2014 Brit Asia Music awards were unveiled.

    First to be announced were the nominations for Best Newcomer, won in 2013 by Sant2.

    For 2014, the nominees include the beautiful Team PBN protégé Bambi, who is also up for Best Female. She was joined by Newcomers Bloodline, Sukhi Sivia, Mani Kaur and Parvinder Sandhar.

    Punjabi Sufi legend in his own right, Satinder Sartaaj, has also been nominated for a number of awards including Best Songwriter, Best International Act, and Best Album for Rangrez.

    Diljit Dosanjh was the big winner of 2013 with three wins, so it will be interesting to see whether Sartaaj can take his place.

    The two Punjabi stars face Miss Pooja, Kanwar Grewal and the hugely successful Yo Yo Honey Singh for the Best International Act.

    Closer to home are Mumzy Stranger, Tazzz, Roach Killa, Apache Indian and Raxstar who are all in contention for Best Urban Act, which was also won by Roach Killa the year before.

    The latter four are also up for Best Urban Single with their smash hit singles, ‘Teardrops’, ‘Baby Girl’, ‘Celebrate’ and ‘Ego’ respectively.

    Brit Asia Music Awards Waving the female flag is of course, Miss Pooja, who returns to the music industry after a mini hiatus while she pursued her acting career.

    While she has been nominated for Best International Act, she has already lost out on Best Female to Kanika Kapoor, Tasha Tah, Sona Walia, Sazia Judge, and Bambi.
