Kevin Mazur; Brantley GutierrezU2 and the Foo Fighters are among the big names nominated for this year’s BBC Music Awards.  That’s the good news: the bad news is that there won’t be an actual ceremony for the stars to attend.

As the BBC reports, the show has been scaled back this year to just a few categories, so the winners will be revealed during a TV show airing December 8 called The Year in Music 2017.   It will look back on the biggest music stories of the year, as told by the musicians involved with them.

U2 and the Foos are both up for the BBC Music Live Performance of the Year honor. The Irish rockers are being acknowledged for their The Joshua Tree Tour 2017, while Dave Grohl and company received their nod for their set at the U.K.’s Glastonbury festival. Also in the running for the award are Nile Rodgers Featuring Chic, Depeche Mode, Katy Perry, and Boy Better Know
