Apparently Leona doesn't want to attend the Brits because she's afraid she will be snubbed and she's only nominated for one award.
And now that they bring it up, it seems like she was really given the shaft at the Grammys compared to her other British peers. Adele got to perform and won on air, Estelle performed and won also, and even Duffy won. But Leona wasn't even asked to perform and of course went home empty handed.
Brit award nominee Leona Lewis is unlikely to attend the Brit Awards this year because she fears that she will come away without a trophy, according to a report in the Daily Star Sunday.
The 23-year-old has only been nominated in one category this year, with her song "Better In Time" in the running for Best British Single.
A source told the Daily Star Sunday: "The Brits is the biggest night of the UK music calendar, and Leona is arguably our biggest star, but she's giving it a wide berth. Leona was shocked she didn't pick up even one award last time and only last week watched her rivals clean up at the Grammys.
"With her massive sales it's ridiculous, but she's aware there's a lot of snobbery around reality TV winners. Rather than face the humiliation of being snubbed again, Leona's staying away."
Last year, the singer was nominated in four categories but came home empty handed. Leona's musical svengali, Simon Cowell, was highly critical of the award organisers, claiming that they had a hidden agenda against his talent show winners.
He told the Sun: "I don't like The Brits. Leona at The Brits tells you everything about the record business.
"You should recognise and celebrate success, not sneer at it, wherever the artist comes from."
The ceremony will be held at London's Earls Court on Wednesday night.
