Adele leads Novello nominations

Adele's success looks set to continue as the singer-songwriter picked up a string of nominations for the Ivor Novello Awards.

Rolling In The Deep was nominated 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 third track is Take That's The Flood - the first song to feature Robbie Williams since his return to the band.

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

Adele faces competition from Florence + The Machine and Ed Sheeran in the battle for Best Song Musically and Lyrically, who are nominated for Shake It Out and The A Team respectively.

The award for Best Contemporary Song is between Nero for Promises, James Blake for The Wilhelm Scream and Lana Del Ray's debut Video Games, which she co-wrote with Justin Parker.

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 with Adele.

Radiohead star Jonny Greenwood gets a nod in the Best Original Film Score category for his work on We Need To Talk About Kevin.

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