LONDON (AP) -- Soul singer Duffy and Coldplay dominate the nominations for British music's prestigious Brit Awards.

Both acts have four nominations, including best British album for Coldplay's "Viva La Vida" and Duffy's debut "Rockferry." Kanye West, Beyonce and Kings of Leon are nominated in the international categories at the awards, to be handed out later Wednesday.

The Brits are the British equivalent of the Grammys, and are expected to draw an A-list musical lineup to London's Earl's Court arena. U2 and Kings of Leon are scheduled to perform. The Pet Shop Boys are due to receive an award for outstanding contribution to music.

Most winners are selected by a vote of industry members, although several categories are chosen by the public in a telephone and online vote.
