Adele up for Mercury award

Adele is third favourite to lift one of the country's most prestigious music awards tonight.

A total of twelve British music acts are up for the Mercury Music Prize including past winners, like PJ Harvey and Elbow, and record-breaking stars like Adele.

Elbow, from Manchester, beat Adele to the prize in 2008.

The winner takes home £20,000 and normally experiences a boost in album sales and concert revenue.

However, last year The xx won, but little has been seen or heard of them since.
