Adele up for six BT Digital Music Awards

Adele, Jessie J and Tinie Tempah are all nominated for BT Digital Music Awards.

Adele has a whopping six nominations including for Best Female Artist, and three separate nominations in the Best Song category - for her tracks 'Make You Feel My Love', 'Rolling in the Deep' and 'Someone Like You' - while Tinie is up for trophies including Best Male Artist and Artist of the year.

Adele's second album, '21' was inspired by her heartbreak over an ex boyfriend, and while it has won her critical praise and sold millions of copies, she has said she would give it all up for love.

She said: "I don't think I'll ever forgive myself for not making my relationship with my ex on '21' work, because he's the love of my life.

"I would still be singing in the shower, of course, but yeah - my career, my friendships, my hobbies. I would have given up trying to be the best."

Other stars to receive nominations include at the awards include Jessie J - who is in line for Best Female Artist and Best Newcomer among others - and Bruno Mars, Eminem, Lady Gaga, Black Eyed Peas and Katy Perry, who will all face off in the Best International Artist or Group category.

The awards will be held the Roundhouse venue in Camden, London, on September 29, and will then be broadcast on ITV2 in the UK on October 3 and 7.
