Florence And The Machine leads MOJO Honour's List Nominees

This time last year her debut album, Lungs, hadn't been released. Since then Florence Welch has enjoyed a meteoric rise and clearly made her mark among MOJO readers as she scooped four nominations when the shortlists for this year's MOJO Honours List were unveiled last night. No other act in the seven-year history of the MOJO Honours List has ever been nominated in four voted-for categories.

Florence And The Machine are nominated in the MOJO Best Album category (sponsored by Ford Transit) for Lungs, MOJO Breakthrough Act, MOJO Best Live Act (sponsored by Red Stripe) and MOJO Song Of The Year for You've Got The Love.

Elsewhere, Kasabian are nominated three times for MOJO Song Of The Year (Fire), MOJO Best Album (sponsored by Ford Transit) for West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum, and MOJO Best Live Act (sponsored by Red Stripe), while Sheffield's Arctic Monkeys are nominated in the latter category as well as in MOJO Song Of The Year for Crying Lightning. Fellow Steel City hero Richard Hawley receives two nominations in the MOJO Song Of The Year category (Open Up Your Door) and the MOJO Best Album category (sponsored by Ford Transit) for Truelove's Gutter.
