Former X Factor finalist Ella is up for two wards; Best British Female Solo Artist as well as Best British Single for last year's Number 1 hit Ghost.
It's quite the accomplishment for Ella who didn't even make the quarter finals of her series in 2012, leaving in a shock exit against eventual winner James Arthur.
Also on the red carpet this evening was Fleur East, who has been signed up by Simon Cowell's Syco record label alongside the show's latest winner Ben Haenow this year.
Other X Factor acts up for gongs tonight are One Direction with two nods in the Best British Group and Best British Video category.
However the boys aren't able to make it to the ceremony tonight, tweeting this evening: "so sad we can’t be at the Brits tonight as we are in Japan on tour ! Massive thanks to all of you voting . Ahh nervous to see if we won !!"
The BRITs 2015 air live on ITV.
