Adele leads nominees for Ivor Novello Awards

Tuesday April 17, 2012

Adele's winning streak looks set to continue as the singer-songwriter picked up four nominations for the Ivor Novello Awards.

Rolling In The Deep is up for Best Song Musically and Lyrically, while her album 21 is in the running for Best Album.

She also dominated the category for the most performed track of 2011 with two out of three songs – Rolling In The Deep and Someone Like You – in the shortlist.

The annual awards – in their 57th year – are highly prized because they are voted for by both songwriters and composers.

There is an all-female shortlist for the album award with Kate Bush's 50 Words For Snow and PJ Harvey's Mercury Prize-winning Let England Shake in the running.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London, on May 17, where a number of honorary awards will also be handed out too.
