Kylie Minogue, Tinie Tempah and Plan B are all up for Ivor Novello awards.

Plan B and Everything Everything lead nominations with two each, and will square off in the songwriting awards' Best Album category.

Plan B's 'She Said' is also nominated for PRS for Music Most Performed Work, while Everything Everything's 'MY KX, UR BF' is in the running for Best Song Musically and Lyrically.

Tinie Tempah's 'Pass Out' is up for Best Contemporary Song alongside The xx's 'Islands' and Katy B's 'Katy On a Mission', while Kylie Minogue's 'All The Lovers' is in the running for Most Performed Work against 'She Said' and Scouting For Girls' 'This Ain't a Lovesong'.

Also nominated for Best Song Musically and Lyrically are Foals' 'Spanish Sahara' and Villagers' 'Becoming a Jackyl'.

Villagers' singer and songwriter Conor O'Brien told BANG Showbiz: "It's not your average pop song to be nominated for something that Lily Allen won last year is kind of interesting. I sort of feel like I'm on the sidelines watching this kind of mainstream thing happening."

Lily scooped three awards at the last year's ceremony, Songwriter of the Year, Best Song Musically and Lyrically and Most Performed Work for her track 'The Fear'.

Other trophies which will be handed out at the awards - held on May 19 at London's Grosvenor House hotel, and covering 2010 in music- include Best Original Film Score, Best Television Soundtrack and Best Original Video Game Score.
