Emeli Sandé was so thrilled by her Ivor Novello nomination that she posted a picture on her Twitter account of her reaction.
"Clown has been nominated for an Ivor!!," Emeli captioned the joyful image, which shows her sitting at a piano bench with a big smile on her face as she leans over in excitement.
The BRIT award singer won two Ivor Novellos last year and this year is nominated again in the Most Performed Work category, along with Olly Murs and Passenger.
Other artists nominated include Arctic Monkeys for Best Album – an award which the band won in 1997 for their debut album – and Disclosure for Best Contemporary Song.
