News: Radio 1’s Huw Stephens hosts NME Awards at Brixton Academy

The annual NME awards kicked off in full swing last night at London’s Brixton Academy, with Jamie T and Kasabian stealing the limelight and each picking up three awards.

Hosted by Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, the event saw performances from The Vaccines, Royal Blood, Run The Jewels and Charli XCX, with 28 prestigious awards being dished out to some of the years greatest artists.

Both ‘Best British band’ and ‘Best Album’ were picked up by Kasabian, whilst Jamie T took home ‘Best Track’ and ‘Best Video.’ Commenting on the night, Mike Williams, editor of NME, said “It’s been an astounding year of comebacks and triumphs for Kasabian and Jamie T and their awards tonight prove it.”

Although not all winners were awarded with such notable titles, with 5 piece pop-punk boyband ‘5 Seconds Of Summer’ picking up the award for ‘Worst band.’ However, the boys seemed to take it on the chin, with band member Michael Clifford tweeting how happy he is to receive the award.
