One Direction, Justin Timberlake and Mumford & Sons are set to perform Wednesday at Britain’s leading music awards, where nominees include the late Amy Winehouse.

Leading the nominations for the Brit Awards — with three a piece — are Mumford & Sons, Emeli Sande and Alt-J.

Winehouse — who passed away in July 2011 from accidental alcohol poisoning — has been nominated for best British Female artist. Amy is eligible thanks to her posthumous “Lioness: Hidden Treasures” album.

Other nominees include the legendary Rolling Stones, who are up against Coldplay, Mumford & Sons, Muse and The Vaccines for best live act!

Among the international nominees are Alicia Keys, Rihanna, the Black Keys, Bruce Springsteen and indie-pop band, fun.

As for the biggest award of the night — best album — contenders include Sande’s “Our Version Of Events,” Alt-J’s “An Awesome Wave,” Mumford & Sons’ “Babel,” Plan B’s “Ill Manors” and Paloma Faith’s “Fall To Grace.”

This year’s awards sees the introduction of a brand new category which acknowledges global success, with nominees including teen favorites One Direction, Grammy winning folk rockers Mumford & Sons and songstress Adele.

After being cut off mid-speech last year after winning two prizes, organizers have promised to make amends with Adele. She has been nominated this year for her popular single “Skyfall.”

“How can you take an artist who has made the biggest cultural impact musically this country has seen globally for some time and cut her off in the middle of her speech?” Brits chairman David Joseph told The Guardian.

“I very much to this day question what was happening in that control booth. I can hint something is going to happen this year to rewrite that wrong.”

A majority of the awards are chosen by more than 1,000 musicians, critics and record industry figures, with several decided by public vote.
