Q Awards round-up
Tuesday 26 October 2010
Last night saw the much-coveted Q Awards, where rock royalty mingle and are awarded for their services to rock ‘n’ roll. However, last night a decidedly un-rock band threatened to steal the limelight – Take That.
The pop group, who have recently been re-united with 5th member Robbie Williams, were awarded the Hall of Fame award for their long-standing careers.
Also, celebrating last night was Plan B, who won Best Break Through Act, and Florence Welch from Florence and the Machine, who won the Best Female award and Best Track for You’ve Got the Love.
Producer Mark Ronson won the Innovation in Sound award, while other big winners of the night were Kasabian, who won probably the best award of the night, the label of Best Act in the World Today; Bryan Ferry who won the Icon award and Madness were given the Idol award.
The bash, held at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London was hosted by ‘pub landlord’ Al Murray and included guests such as legend Paul McCartney, Tinie Tempah, Chase & Status, Charlotte Church, Nadine Coyle and Paolo Nutini.
Other winners of the night were:
Best New Act: Mumford & Sons
Classic Songwriter: Nick Finn
Best Live Act: Green Day
Best Video: Chase & Status
Next Big Thing: Clare Maguire
Hero: Chemical Brothers
Best Album: The National – High Violet
