Rap group N-Dubz, who are only nominated for one award at the February 16 show, are disappointed since the committee ignores the British talent and prefers American musician.

British rap group have blasted Brit Award organizers for snubbing homegrown talent in favor of American acts at this year's ceremony. The "Playing With Fire" hitmakers are only nominated for one award at next month's bash, for their collaboration with . And they're convinced they deserve more.
