Lady Gaga Goes Up Against Green Day And Muse At The Q Awards

Britain’s Q Awards were announced today, and Lady Gaga’s theatrical Monster Ball, Green Day’s three-hour epic concert experience and Muse’s spectacular live shows are all nominated for Best Live Act. (Also up: Brit act Kasabian and the Aussie group Pendulum.) It’s going to be tough to pick a clear winner in that highly competitive category, and it should be just as difficult choosing between Mama Monster and Idolator fave Florence + The Machine for Best Female Act. Full list of noms below, which also includes Gorillaz, Brandon Flowers and Popping Up babe Lissie!
