Kaiser Chiefs, James Blunt and Coldplay are amongst the main nominations for next month’s Brit Awards.

This year’s awards take place at London Earl’s Court on February 15, and will see live appearances from Coldplay, Kaiser Chiefs, James Blunt, Kanye West, Kelly Clarkson and KT Tunstall.

Hosted by Chris Evans, the awards have recognised Kaiser Chiefs who are nominated in five categories – the most of any band and only equalled this year by James Blunt. Kaiser Chiefs are nominated in the British Group, MasterCard Album, Breakthrough Act, Live Act and Rock Act categories.

Last year Franz Ferdinand were nominated for five awards, but this year have been nominated in three - Best Band, Best Live Act and Best Rock Act.

Speaking about the nominations, singer Alex Kapranos told NME.COM: “We’re really chuffed to be nominated this year. It seems like only yesterday that we won at the Brits, but we’re excited to be nominated again.”

The success of James Blunt’s album ‘Back To Bedlam’ sees him nominated in the British Male Solo Artist, MasterCard Album, Pop Act, Breakthrough Act and Best Single for ‘You’re Beautiful’. Coldplay, who released ’X&Y’ last year, are nominated four times.

The Outstanding Contribution To Music Award will be presented to Paul Weller. However, he said that any talk of a reunion of The Jam off the back of it is unfounded.

He said: “Let me just nip that in the bud right now. That will never, ever happen. Me and my children would have to be destitute and starving in the gutter before I'd even consider that, and I don't think that'll happen anyway.

"I think it's a great thing that The Jam's music has endured over the years and people still love it and still play it. It still means something to people and a lot of that's because we stopped at the right time, it didn't go on and become embarrassing."

The nominations were announced at a launch party tonight in London (January 11). The full list reads:
