Tinie Tempah at the Brit Award nominations

Tinie Tempah must be feeling good tempered right now, as he's been nominated for FOUR Brit Awards - more than any other artist!

He's up for best British male, breakthrough act, best single for Pass Out and best album for Disc-Overy.

Cheryl Cole and Ellie Goulding are nominated for two awards, as is Katy Perry - she's competing with Rihanna for top international female.

Justin Bieber takes on the Glee Cast for international breakthrough.

Ricky meets the Brits nominees!

Take That, who had the biggest-selling album of 2010 with Progress, get two nominations - for best group and best album.

X Factor dominates the best single category - with judge Cheryl Cole fighting former contestants Matt Cardle, Alexandra Burke and Olly Murs for the prize.

But there were no nominations for JLS, despite scoring two number one singles in 2010 and winning two Brits last year.

Lady GaGa, who won three awards last time, doesn't get a mention either.

Comedian James Corden will host the ceremony on 15 February at the O2 Arena in London.

This year's Brits trophy has been restyled by top designer Vivienne Westwood.
