BRIT Awards 2011: The Nominations

Tinie Tempah leads the field at this year's BRIT Awards, after picking up four nominations.

The Pass Out rapper, who performed at the launch event with Ellie Goulding, received nods in every category that he was eligible for: British Male, British Breakthrough Act, British Album and British Single.

Mercury Prize winners The XX also look set for a good night at the awards and will do battle for British Group, British Breakthrough Act and British Album.

Plan B, Cheryl Cole, Ellie Goulding, Katy Perry and Kings of Leon all picked up two nominations each, while the British Single prize is dominated by X Factor stars, with Matt Cardle, Alexandra Burke, Olly Murs and Cheryl Cole all in the running.

There was no mention, however, of 2008 runners up JLS who, despite achieving two No.1 singles and a platinum-selling album last year, failed to pick up a single nomination.
