Jessie Ware has been nominated for this year's Mercury Music Prize, alongside Plan B and Richard Hawley.

Lianne La Havas, Ben Howard, Maccabees, Alt-J, Field Music, Sam Lee, Roller Trio, Django Django, and Michael Kiwanuka make up the rest of the list, who are now competing for a £20,000 prize.

PJ Harvey took the prize last year for her album Let England Shake, which was her second time winning the award.

Coldplay, Florence + The Machine and Kate Bush are a few of the hotly-tipped artists who missed out this year, in favour of a more eclectic lineup. We can't wait to listen to all the artists...

Channel 4 will air the ceremony, including live performances from all 12 acts, on November 1st. BS
