LONDON (AP) - Newcomers and veteran rockers have been nominated for Britain’s leading music award this year.

London-based rapper Tinie Tempah, who debuted his first album last year, has four nominations at the Brit Awards, including British Male Solo artist and Album of the Year.

Former Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant is also nominated for the male solo artist category after his recent albums gained critical acclaim. Other British contenders include Take That, The XX, and folk-rockers Mumford And Sons. Nominees in the international categories include Alicia Keys, Katy Perry, Kings of Leon and Kanye West.

The awards are the British equivalent of the Grammys. Most winners are selected by a vote of more than 1,000 industry members. The ceremony takes place Feb. 15 in London.
