The 'Am I Forgiven' singer-songwriter - a newcomer on the Honours List - has amassed a hat-trick of nominations including MOJO Breakthrough, MOJO Best Album and MOJO Song of the Year.

Rumer's 'Season's of my Soul' LP has given her a chance of taking home the Best Album award, but she faces competition from former Czars frontman John Grant - who has also been nominated for MOJO Best Live Act- with his 'Queen Of Denmark' record and MOJO Song of the Year.

Arctic Monkeys - who have collected their seventh nomination in the last four years - could pick up the album gong with 'Don't fourth record 'Suck It And See'.
