The nominations for the second annual BBC Music Awards are here, and Adele and Florence + the Machine dominate the playing field. 

Adele’s 25 recently became the fastest million-selling album in U.K. history, and the juggernaut nabbed nominations in the British artist of the year and BBC live performance of the year categories. Florence Welch earned nominations in the same two slots, based off the success of her May 2015 release How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful.

Winners in the BBC Music Awards’ five categories will be unveiled Dec. 10, at Birmingham, England’s Genting Arena. The evening’s show will also feature performances from the likes of Ellie Goulding, Mumford & Sons, One Direction and more. 

Also up for British artist of the year are Ed Sheeran, Jamie xx, Foals and Years & Years.
