But rather than acceptance to an Adele-style two-fingered salute, Emeli has waited until now to aperture her frustration.
She said: "It wasn't the best of adventures endure year. It was agitative to win an award, but I didn't get to go up and do a speech.
"If I did win one this time, I'd like to do it properly, although I haven't planned what I'm traveling to say because I don't wish to jinx it.
"I didn't even accept an anthology out endure year or the adventitious to prove myself, so accepting to go aback this year and accepting that accepting agency a lot."
Emeli has becoming herself an army of admirers over the accomplished year - but with supporters appear critics too, who say she's been far too over-exposed.
"I feel like it's a bit unfair," she said. "I in fact haven't done that much, but it's just what I accept done accept been huge events.
"If I was at the Mobos, it was because I was nominated, or if I performed at something, it's because I was asked. It's not like I was banishment myself on anyone.
"Everyone is advantaged to their own opinion, but I formed so harder to get any acknowledgment at all, so I don't see that as a negative."
She continued: "People who were analytical of that weren't there if you're alive your a*** off aggravating to get a record, and if you're aggravating to get anyone to listen. They don't apperceive how that feels.
"So I yield it as a positive. It's all about accepting your music out there, and who knows, I ability not get that affectionate of acknowledgment next year, or ever. I'm happy."
With that out of the way, Emeli reverts to getting aflame about tomorrow's bash.
If she could win one, she'd adulation it to be Best Album.
"That's why you do it and that's why you put yourself out there," she said. "It's a actual big class though. I'm up adjoin some heavyweights."
She'd aswell be appealing chuffed with Best Female. And if she loses out, she can't adjudge who she'd like to see yield it.
