The 2012 ARIA nominations are in, with Guy Sebastian, Jessica Mauboy and Keith Urban all up for awards at the November ceremony!

While Guy Sebastian has been busy coaching the Over 25s on X-Factor, his hit collaboration with Lupe Fiasco, Battle Scars, has been going gangbusters and earned him a nomination for Best Male Artist and Best Pop Release. 



The former ARIA Award winner has also scored a nomination for Song of the Year with his single Don't Worry Be Happy.

Competing against him for Song of the Year is Jessica Mauboy, whose hit single Galaxy (with Stan Walker) is also nominated.



The Sapphires starlet has also received nominations for Best Female Artist and Best Pop Release for her song Gotcha.

Another reality tv judge to make the list is former The Voice and now American Idol judge Keith Urban, who has received a nomination for Best Male Artist, for For You.



Unsurprisingly, Gotye has received four nominations for his hit album Making Mirrors, including Album of the Year, Best Pop Release, Best Australian Live Act and Best Male Artist, while receiving the award for Best Cover Art.
