Music

The British singers are both nominated for Best Live Performer, competing against the likes of Adele, U2, Foo Fighters and more.

AceShowbiz - Harry Styles, Ed Sheeran and Adele are among the acts battling to be named Best Live Performer at the 2018 Silver Clef Awards.

The prestigious prize, part of the Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef Awards, is voted for by fans ahead of the ceremony at Grosvenor House in London on July 6.

The trio of British stars are competing with eight other artists for the award, and will take on the likes of Stormzy, Iron Maiden, Dua Lipa, U2, Fall Out Boy, Foo Fighters, Jeff Lynne's ELO and The xx.

To win the award, acts have to have performed in the U.K. between March 2017 and the same month this year. Fans can choose their favourite live performers via the Ticketmaster website - with Harry and Dua leading the early voting on Monday, June 4.

Previous winners of the gong include Little Mix, One Direction, Paul McCartney and Arctic Monkeys.

Since 1976, music industry executives have hosted the awards lunch each year to raise funds for British music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins - which runs therapy centres for those with psychological, physical or developmental disabilities.

The main prize each year is the Silver Clef Award, which is given to honour an artist's outstanding contribution to U.K. music. Previous winners include The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Annie Lennox, Coldplay and David Bowie.

Last year's event was attended by stars including Debbie Harry, Robert Plant, Nile Rodgers, Alice Cooper, Eric Clapton and Shirley Bassey.
