Ceremony held May 30 in Sydney.

Jet has accumulated four nominations for the Australasian Performing Right Assn.'s annual awards, to be held May 30 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Sydney.

The Aussie rockers' ballad "Look What You've Done” is in the running for the prestigious song of the year category, nominations for which were unveiled today (May 5).

Other songs vying for that trophy, which is voted on by about 15,000 APRA members, include Missy Higgins' "Scar" and "Ten Days", Eskimo Joe's "From the Sea" and the Dissociatives' "Young Man Old Man (You Ain't Better Than the Rest)."

All eligible songs must be written by an APRA member and released in the preceding calendar year.

In other news, APRA will introduce categories for most performed urban, and blues & roots songs to its 2006 gala.

"With the proliferation of Australian composers in (these) genres, we feel that it is a timely opportunity to acknowledge these songwriters," said APRA CEO Brett Cottle.

The two new categories will be based on volume of radio and television broadcast.
