Tonight (13th January) the BRIT Awards 2011 nominations have been announced. The award ceremony will take place on Tuesday 15th February at the O2 Arena in London, and will be broadcast live in the UK on ITV1.

Tinie Tempah leads the pack with a staggering 4 nominations, including categories British Male Solo Act and the coveted MasterCard British Album of the Year. The south London popstar/rapper is followed by The XX, Plan B, Mumford & Sons and Take That, who all have three nods, all of whom are up alongside him for the MasterCard British Album of the Year.
