Sam Smith and Lewis Capaldi both scored nominations this year for the U.K.’s prestigious Ivor Novello Awards.

The two are competing for the PRS for Music Most Performed Work prize. Sam’s song with Normani, “Dancing with a Stranger,” is going up against Lewis’ song “Hold Me While You Wait” in that category.

The Ivor Novello Awards, named after a popular Welsh composer, singer and actor who was famous in the first part of the 20th century, honor excellence in British and Irish songwriting and composing, and are judged by songwriters.
