Despite breaking records upon records and been the highest-selling songs in 2015, Adele lack creativity for songwriting. The prestigious Ivor Novello Awards, who is known to celebrate the achievement in songwriting and is voted for by composers and songwriters has rejected Adele’s songs as the singer was ignored for any nomination.
For this year edition of Ivor Novello Awards , British born singer Adele received zero nomination, though the award is priceless for musicians because they are voted for by their peers and not fans.
Though Adele did not get any nomination for the awards, but can still pick up special awards for “ outstanding song collection ” and “ songwriter of the year ”, at the event on 19, May 2016 in London.
The award is decided by a panel from the British Academy of Songwriters Composers and Authors. However, in 2011 Adele’s ” 21 ” won two special awards; ‘songwriter of the year’ recognition and ‘most performed work’ for Rolling in the Deep.
