Earning the second-most nods is “Riptide” singer Vance Joy.  His song “Missing Piece” is nominated for two awards — most performed Australian work and most performed alternative work while he also secured a nod for most-performed pop work for co-writing the Benny Blanco and Marshmello‘s “You.”

“Dance Monkey” singer Tones and I is also up for several awards, including most performed Australian work and most performed pop work, for “Fly Away.” 

Olivia Rodrigo is also up for an award, being nominated for performed international work thanks to her hit “drivers license.”  She is facing off against Lil Nas X‘s “Montero” and Jason Derulo‘s “Take You Dancing” in the same category.
