Sir Elton John collects multiple nominations for the coveted Ivor Novello Awards, to be held May 24 at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

John's teamwork with the Scissor Sisters' on the track "I Don't Feel Like Dancin'" is recognized with a nod in the "PRS most performed work" and "international hit of the year" categories. The track, which was a major chart success in the U.K. and across Europe, is published in Britain by HST Management Ltd/Universal Music Publishing/EMI Music Publishing, and is credited to John and fellow songwriters Scott Hoffman and Jason Sellards.

Meanwhile, Madonna's "Sorry", co-written with Stuart Price and published in Britain by Warner Chappell Music, is also in the running in the same two fields.

Alex Turner, frontman and main writer for alternative rock act the Arctic Monkeys, caps a swift climb to stardom with a nomination for "best song musically and lyrically" for the Monkeys' U.K. chart-topping track "When the Sun Goes Down." Turner, represented by EMI Music Publishing, is up against singer/songwriters Scott Matthews, with his Universal Music Publishing track "Elusive", and Nerina Pallot, for her Chrysalis Music-signed song "Sophia".

The 52nd "Ivors," as they are affectionately known, are presented by the British Academy of Composers and Songwriters in association with the Performing Right Society. The lunchtime gala principally celebrates the achievements of the best British composers and music from the previous year.

The 15 awards on offer are judged either by a panel of BACS members or on sales and broadcast performance.
