Blur get Shortlisted

Blur, Radiohead and The Coral are amongst the groups competing to win this year's American Shortlist Music Prize, dotmusic can confirm.

All three are in the frame, although there are still almost 100 names being considered for the coveted award, which is based on the UK Mercury Music Prize.

The Streets, The Mars Volta, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Beck, Hot Hot Heat, Interpol, Turin Brakes and The Libertines are also aiming for the final shake-up of ten acts, with the winner announced on October 16.

This year's voting panel, which has in the past included members of The Strokes and U2, this year consists of Josh Homme from Queens Of The Stone Age, Coldplay's Chris Martin and Tom Waits.

Sigur Ros won the Shortlist Music Prize in 2001, with N*E*R*D taking the award last year.
