Sam Smith nominated for Ivor Novello Award
Sam Smith has been nominated for a prestigious Ivor Novello Award.
The 22-year-old is up for the award with his song Stay with Me in the most performed work category. He faces competition from Clean Bandit for their track Rather Be and George Ezra with Budapest.
The annual awards are now in their 60th year and celebrate songwriting and composing. The gongs are voted for by writers and this year they will be presented at a ceremony in London, UK, on May 21.
The announcement tops off a recent stint of awards and acclaim for Sam after he scooped four Grammys in February, including song of the year for Stay with Me and pop record of the year for In the Lonely Hour. He also received two Brits and the track is nominated for four Billboard Music Awards.
