British pop star Ellie Goulding is nominated for three Brit Awards, but she is not expecting to win any because she has become a "pro" at losing.

The singer is nominated for Best Female, Best Single and Best Video, but she does not expect to take home any trophies following the ceremony in London on Wednesday night (19Feb14).

Goulding has not won an award at a major music prizegiving event since landing a Critics Choice Brit Award back in 2010, and admits she is now used to losing out.

She tells Britain's The Sun, "I'm definitely a pro at dealing with not winning. I've been to a lot of awards now where I haven't won. Who knows if I'll win at the Brits. Fingers crossed, but if I don't, I won't be surprised. I have learned not to get my hopes up."
