Ellie Goulding and Tinie Tempah sang a collaboration, and both artists received multiple nominations. Tinie Tempah is up for four, while The xx, Mumford & Sons, and Plan B are in the running for three each. Vivienne Westwood has redesigned the statues, and British artists in with a chance of getting their hands on one include Cheryl Cole, Take That, and Florence + the Machine. Nominees in the international categories include Kylie Minogue, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Eminem, Kanye West, Black Eyed Peas, and Kings of Leon to name but a few.
