Winehouse up for posthumous Brit

Amy Winehouse could take a posthumous Brit Award after she was shortlisted for best British female against acts such as Emeli Sande tonight.

The late star - who died 17 months ago - previously took the title in 2007 on the back of her massive Back To Black album.

Sande, Mumford And Sons and Mercury Prize-winners Alt-J lead the nominations for next month's Brits, competing for three each. Muse, Plan B, Rita Ora, Coldplay and Olly Murs are among eight acts with two nominations apiece.

Veteran stars the Rolling Stones have been nominated for best live act - the first time they have been in the running for a Brit for 17 years.

Coldplay, Mumford And Sons, Muse and The Vaccines are the bands who will challenge the Stones - who performed two UK shows at London's O2 Arena to mark their 50th anniversary last year - for the best live act title.

The big award of the night - best album - will be fought between Sande's Our Version Of Events, Alt-J's An Awesome Wave, the Mumford release Babel and Plan B's Ill Manors. Paloma Faith is also up for the title for her second album Fall To Grace.

Winehouse, who was eligible as a result of the release of her Lioness: Hidden Treasures album, is thought to be the first nominee to be included posthumously. Although Freddie Mercury won a Brit in 1992, a little over two months after his death, that was an honorary award for his outstanding contribution to music.

Sande and Faith go up against each other once more in the British female category, with Bat For Lashes (Natasha Khan), Jessie Ware and Winehouse completing the contenders. Sande's final nomination is as one of the 15 tracks in the running for best single with Next To Me. The best male shortlist sees Richard Hawley go up against Murs, Calvin Harris, Plan B and Ben Howard.

Mumford And Sons will line up against Alt-J again for best British group, with The xx and Muse. Pop act One Direction - who will be performing on the night when the awards take place on February 20 - complete the category after a year which has seen them conquer the US.

The nominations were announced at a ceremony in London's Savoy Hotel, which saw the first 2012 Brit trophy - designed by artist Damien Hirst with his signature spot design - handed to critics' choice winner Tom Odell. It was handed over by last year's recipient Sande.
