Who: Could it be second time lucky for Dizzee Rascal? After winning the prize with his 2003 debut ’Boy In Da Corner’ rapper’s third album has bagged a nomination, meaning the Bow rapper could be the first person to pick up the prize twice. Featuring star turns from Lily Allen and fellow nominees Arctic Monkeys, this album showed Rascal moving away from his grime roots into a wider musical world.

NME.COM will be bringing you the result live from the London ceremony, so come back from 9pm tonight to see who has won.
