  • The British star has been nominated for four of the prestigious awards

    Record breaking British star Adele looks set for more success after receiving four nominations – more than any other artist – for the 57th Ivor Novello Awards.

    The 23-year-old songstress from Tottenham, London – who has already scooped six Grammys and two Brits this year alone – leads the way for this year’s coveted songwriting honours.


    She is nominated in the Best Song Musically and Lyrically category for her hit Rolling In The Deep, as well as the Music Most Performed award with entries for Rolling In The Deep and Someone Like You.

    The superstar is also up for the Album Award for 21 where she will face competition from Kate Bush’s 50 Words For Snow and PJ Harvey’s Let England Shake.

    The prestigious Ivor Novello awards celebrate excellence in songwriting and are judged by some of the industry’s leading figures.

    Previous winners have included Sir Paul McCartney, David Bowie, Amy Winehouse and Annie Lennox. The ceremony will take place on Thursday 17 May at the Grosvenor Hotel in London.
