Old Britpop battles will be reignited at the Q Awards as both Blur and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds go head to head for two awards.
Both bands are up for Best Album and Best Act in the World Today at the award show in London on October 19.
Former Oasis frontman Gallagher joins Ed Sheeran, Florence + The Machine and Foals in leading the nominations, with three apiece.
Gallagher and Sheeran are also in the running for Best Solo Artist, alongside Kanye West, Taylor Swift and Sam Smith.
Smith, who has penned the theme song for new Bond film Spectre, won in last year’s Best New Act category, which this year features Jess Glynne, James Bay and Years & Years.
Absolute Radio DJ Christian O’Connell will return to host the awards for the second year in a row.
Voting is open to the public in seven categories – including best new act, best album, best solo artist and best video – at www.Qthemusic.com/Q/Awards.
