Six-time nominee, Katy is up for four awards this year including the coveted Album of the Year, along with Best Pop Album, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for “Teenage Dream” and “Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals for “California Gurls” featuring Snoop Dogg. Katy has also been nominated for two BRIT awards for International Album and International Female Solo Artist. The BRIT awards will be handed out live on February 15th at the O2 Arena in London.

Teenage Dream was released in August, 2010 and has since sold 5 million copies world-wide. The album’s first single, “California Gurls” featuring Snoop Dogg was the biggest selling song of 2010 according to Soundscan with 4,398,212 tracks scanned. After “California Gurls” spent six weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Katy scored two follow-up No. 1’s, with “Teenage Dream” and her current single “Firework,” making her the first female artist in 11 years to score three Billboard #1 singles from the same album.
