Olly Murs , Coldplay and Emeli Sandé are among the nominees for the U.K.'s prestigious Ivor Novello Awards, which salute the best in British and Irish songwriting each year.
According to U.K. newspaper The Independent , Emeli's song "Next to Me" is up for two awards: Best Song Musically and Lyrically and Most Performed Work. That takes into account how many times the song has been heard on the radio and on TV. Speaking of that, "Next to Me" is featured in Thursday's episode of Glee.
Also up for Most Performed Work are Coldplay's "Paradise" and Olly Murs' "Dance with Me." That song is featured on Olly's U.S. debut album Right Place Right Time, which is in stores this week.
The Ivor Novello Awards, named after a popular Welsh composer, singer and actor who was famous in the first part of the 20th century, are voted on by songwriters. Last year, Adele was a double winner. The 2013 Ivor Novello Awards ceremony will take place in London on May 16.
