Melbourne singer Kimbra, who famously sings on Gotye's global hit Somebody That I Used To Know, was nominated for Best Female Artist and Best Pop Release.

The 10 publicly-voted nominees for Song of the Year range from pop releases by Delta Goodrem, Ricki-Lee and Reece Mastin to Matt Corby's indie hit Brother and 360's Boys Like You featuring Gossling.

The 26th annual awards will be held at the Sydney Entertainment Centre on November 29.
