Clean Bandit were "freaking out" after discovering they had been nominated for two BRIT awards.
The 'Rather Be' hitmakers performed at the nomination announcement show last night (15.01.15), but said they might find it hard because they were so shocked to have been shortlisted in the British Group and British Single categories.
The band tweeted: "aaaahh we've been nominated for two whole brits!!! freaking out which is so not ideal cos supposed to perform now but can't stop giggling (sic)."
Milan Neil Amin-Smith also commented on the nominations on his personal account, praising the "geniuses" who entered them into the categories.
He added: "omg no kidding we got nominated for two brits!!!!! ehehehehehe who even votes to decide that what a little bunch of geniuses they r heehee (sic)."
Sam Smith - whose debut LP 'In the Lonely Hour' was the second best selling album in the UK and US in 2014 - suggested he felt extremely emotional after receiving five nominations, posting an image of the categories he was up for on his Instagram, captioning it with a series of crying emojis.
Elsewhere, 'Thinking Out Loud' singer Ed Sheeran said he felt "chuffed" to be up for four awards, while Rita Ora posted online to say she felt proud to be British after her single 'I Will Never Let You Down' was nominated for Best British Video.
Rising pop sensation Charli XCX - whose real name is Charlotte Aitchison - also expressed her shock at being shortlisted in the Best British Video category by simply saying she was "#dead".
Writing on Twitter, she said: "nominated for a Brit Award... #dead (sic)."
