With the music world eagerly anticipating who might win at next week's Brits, Nokia MixRadio reveals which Britons BRIT nominees are being best received around the world.
Nokia MixRadio has a selection of Brits nominee playlists available through its service in 31 countries across five continents and can announce that, with one and a half weeks to go, Calvin Harris is the most listened to Brit across the globe.
China is the #1 country most crazy for the Brits outside the UK and Olly Murs has skipped to the top of Chinese charts as the best Brit with the most listens.
The Chinese must know a thing or two about music as UK acts make up four of the top five most listened to acts in the country, with Birdy, John Newman and Calvin Harris coming next.
The Russians have Rudimental with the most listens and Jessie J is the most listened to in Turkey.
Justin Timberlake also makes the Global list, but unfortunately for him it is at the wrong end. Despite receiving a nomination for Best International Solo Artist, he came out top in the list of tracks most 'skipped' out of all the artists to make this year's BRITS shortlist!
