Ed Sheeran and Ellie Goulding are to do battle for song of the year at the BBC Music Awards.

Their tracks - Bloodstream and Love Me Like You Do - face stiff competition from huge hits including Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars and Cheerleader (Felix Jaehn Remix) by OMI.

The winning song will be announced at the Genting Arena in Birmingham on Thursday.

Other songs up for the gong include Hozier's Take Me To Church, Jason Derulo's Want To Want Me and Jess Glynne's Hold My Hand.

Completing the list is Lean On by Major Lazer & DJ Snake feat. MØ, Can't Feel My Face by The Weeknd and See You Again by Wiz Khalifa feat. Charlie Puth.

Out of the five awards at this year's event, song of the year is the only accolade voted for by the public.

Jack Garratt will be crowned BBC Introducing artist of the year at the event, and three other awards will be presented on the night as decided by the BBC Music panel: British artist of the year, international artist of the year and - new for 2015 - the BBC live performance of the year award.
