NME Awards 2015 Winners

NME Awards 2015 Winners

So the NME has become a bit of an event on the music calendar and some say offer a bit of a nod to the Brit Award winners that are being announced the following week. So its no surprise the event  attracts a whole host of celebrity eye candy along the red carpet (and Jamie T – only kidding).  The papps loved their night claiming shots of Charli XCX, Alexa Chung and Clean Bandit’s Grace Chatto.

The awards, though, feel like the similarity with The Brits ends with the red carpet followers. The winners list is much more akin to what NME apparently stands for, even if the main publication has gone too commercial and lost its edge.

Big winners include Suede for the Godlike Genius Award aka Lifetime Achievement.  Kasabian and Foo Fighters won awards for best british and international bands respectively. 

Royal Blood however won two gongs (Best New Band and Best Live Band) while the brilliant Jamie T won three, two for his comeback track Zombie.  He won the third for Best Moment thanks to his comeback.
