The X Factor champion has been nominated for 'British Single' at tonight's show at the O2 Arena in London (February 20).
Arthur's winner's single 'Impossible' faces tough competition from Adele's 'Skyfall' and Emeli Sandé's 'Next to Me', and the star doesn't fancy his chances of walking home with the prize.
"It's an absolute honour," Arthur told Capital FM about his nomination. "I mean I'm flattered by that. To even be considered is great.
"I'm not expecting to win it but to be in that category with people like Adele and Emeli Sandé is just crazy."
